Zoology 440 Biomechanics 2008 Lecture 16. Basic fluid dynamics: defining properties of fluids. •Recap definition of a fluid and Newton’s law of viscosity. •Conservation of mass and continuity •An applicaion of continuity •Conservation of energy and Bernoulli’s principle •Applications of Bernoulli Recap A fluid deforms continuously under an applied stress no slip condition ! = μ du/dy dynamic viscosity of a Fuid Newton’s Law of Viscosity " = kinematic viscosity = μ/ # ! = " d ( # u) /dy ! du/dy viscosity depends on •temperature •concentration of dissolved solutes •shear rate (rate of strain) Continuity: what goes in must come out (mass may not appear or disapear).
