Simplifications in the general equations and common boundary conditions are presented that allow exact solutions to be obtained. Two of the most common simplifications are 1). steady flow and 2). incompressible flow. The Acceleration Field of a Fluid A general expression of the flow field velocity vector is given by: ˆ ˆ V ( r , t ) = i u(x, y, z, t ) + ˆ v(x, y, z, t ) + k w(x , y, z, t ) j One of two reference frames can be used to specify the flow field characteristics: eulerian – the coordinates are fixed and we observe the flow field characteristics as it passes by the fixed coordinates. lagrangian - the coordinates move through the flow field following individual particles in the flow. Since the primary equation used in specifying the flow field velocity is based on Newton’s second law, the acceleration vector is an important solution parameter. In cartesian coordinates, this is expressed as a= ∂V ∂V ∂ V dV ∂ V ∂ V = + u +v +w + (V ⋅ ∇ )V = ∂t ∂ x ∂y ∂ z ∂t dt total local convective The acceleration vector is expressed in terms of three types of derivatives: Total acceleration = total derivative of velocity vector = local derivative + convective derivative of velocity vector | v v IV - 1 | e-Text Main Menu | Textbook Table of Contents | Study Guide Likewise, the total derivative (also referred to as the substantial derivative ) of other variables can be expressed in a similar form, e.g., dP ∂P ∂P ∂P ∂ P ∂ P = + u +v +w + (V ⋅ ∇ )P = ∂y ∂ z ∂t dt ∂ t ∂ x Example 4.1 Given the eulerian velocity-vector field ˆ ˆ V = 3 t i + x z ˆ + t y2 k j find the acceleration of the particle. For the given velocity vector, the individual components are u = 3t v= xz 2 w = ty Evaluating the individual components, we obtain ∂V 2 = 3i +y k ∂t ∂V = zj ∂x ∂V = 2tyk ∂y ∂V = xj ∂z Substituting, we obtain dV 2 2 = ( 3 i + y k) + (3 t) (z j) + (x z) (2 t y k) + (t y ) (x j) dt After collecting terms, we have dV 2 2 = 3 i + (3 t z + t x y ) j + ( 2 x y z t + y ) k ans. dt | v v IV - 2 | e-Text Main Menu | Textbook Table of Contents | Study Guide The Differential Equation of Conservation of Mass If we apply the basic concepts of conservation of mass to a differential control volume, we obtain a differential form for the continuity equation in cartesian coordinates ∂ρ ∂ ∂ ∂ + (ρ u) + (ρ v) + (ρ w) = 0 ∂t ∂ x ∂y ∂z and in cylindrical coordinates ∂ρ 1 ∂ + (r ρ v r ) + 1 ∂ (ρ vθ ) + ∂ (ρ v z ) = 0 ∂t r ∂r ∂z r ∂θ Steady Compressible Flow For steady flow, the term ∂ = 0 and all properties are function of position only. ∂t The previous equations simplify to Cartesian: ∂ ∂ ∂ (ρ u) + (ρ v ) + (ρ w) = 0 ∂x ∂y ∂z Cylindrical: 1∂ (r ρ vr ) + 1 ∂ (ρ vθ ) + ∂ (ρ v z ) = 0 ∂z r∂r r ∂θ Incompressible Flow For incompressible flow, density changes are negligible, ρ = const., and In the two coordinate systems, we have ∂u ∂ v ∂ w + + =0 ∂x ∂y ∂z Cartesian: | v v IV - 3 | e-Text Main Menu | Textbook Table of Contents | Study Guide ∂ρ =0 ∂t 1∂ (r vr ) + 1 ∂ (vθ ) + ∂ (v z ) = 0 ∂z r∂r r ∂θ Cylindrical: Key Point: It is noted that the assumption of incompressible flow is not restricted to fluids which cannot be compressed, e.g. liquids. Incompressible flow is valid for (1) when the fluid is essentially incompressible (liquids) and (2) for compressible fluids for which compressibility effects are not significant for the problem being considered. The second case is assumed to be met when the Mach number is less than 0.3: Ma = V/c < 0.3 Gas flows can be considered incompressible The Differential Equation of Linear Momentum If we apply Newton’s Second Law of Motion to a differential control volume we obtain the three components of the differential equation of linear momentum. In cartesian coordinates, the equations are expressed in the form: Inviscid Flow: Euler’s Equation If we assume the flow is frictionless, all of the shear stress terms drop out. The resulting equation is known as Euler’s equation and in vector form is given by: ρg - ∇P = ρ dV dt | v v IV - 4 | e-Text Main Menu | Textbook Table of Contents | Study Guide dV is the total or substantial derivative of the velocity discussed dt previously and ∇ P is the usual vector gradient of pressure. This form of Euler’s where equation can be integrated along a streamline to obtain the frictionless Bernoulli’s equation ( Sec. 4.9). The Differential Equation of Energy The differential equation of energy is obtained by applying the first law of thermodynamics to a differential control volume. The most complex element of the development is the differential form of the control volume work due to both normal and tangential viscous forces. When this is done, the resulting equation has the form ρ du + P (∇⋅ V) = ∇⋅ (k ∇ T ) + Φ dt where Φ is the viscous dissipation function. The term for the total derivative of internal energy includes both the transient and convective terms seen previously. Two common assumptions used to simplify the general equation are: 1. du ≈ Cv dT and 2. Cv, µ, k, ρ ≈ constants With these assumptions, the energy equation reduces to ρ Cv dT = k ∇2 T + Φ dt It is noted that the flow-work term was eliminated as a result of the assumption of constant density, ρ, for which the continuity equation becomes ∇ ⋅ V = 0 ,thus eliminating the term P (∇ ⋅ V ) . We now have the three basic differential equations necessary to obtain complete flow field solutions of fluid flow problems. | v v IV - 5 | e-Text Main Menu | Textbook Table of Contents | Study Guide Boundary Conditions for the Basic Equations In vector form, the three basic governing equations are written as Continuity: ∂ρ + ∇ ⋅ (ρ V) = 0 ∂t Momentum: ρ dV = ρ g − ∇ P + ∇ ⋅τi j dt Energy: ρ du + P (∇⋅ V) = ∇⋅ (k ∇ T ) + Φ dt We have three equations and five unknowns: ρ, V, P, u, and T ; and thus need two additional equations. These would be the equations of state describing the variation of density and internal energy as functions of P and T, i.e., ρ = ρ (P,T) and u = u (P,T) Two common assumptions providing this information are either: 1. Ideal gas: ρ = P/RT and du = Cv dT 2. Incompressible fluid: ρ = constant and du = C dT Time and Spatial Boundary Conditions Time Boundary Conditions: If the flow is unsteady, the variation of each of the variables (ρ, V, P, u, and T ) must be specified initially, t = 0, as functions of spatial coordinates e.g. x,y,z. Spatial Boundary Conditions: The most common spatial boundary conditions are those specified at a fluid – surface boundary. This typically takes the form of assuming equilibrium (e.g., no slip condition – no property jump) between the fluid and the surface at the boundary. | v v IV - 6 | e-Text Main Menu | Textbook Table of Contents | Study Guide This takes the form: Vfluid = Vwall Tfluid = Twall Note that for porous surfaces with mass injection, the wall velocity will be equal to the injection velocity at the surface. A second common spatial boundary condition is to specify the values of V, P, and T at any flow inlet or exit. Example 4.6 For steady incompressible laminar flow through a long tube, the velocity distribution is given by r2 v z = U 1 − 2 R vr = 0 vθ = 0 where U is the maximum or centerline velocity and R is the tube radius. If the wall temperature is constant at Tw and the temperature T = T(r) only, find T(r) for this flow. For the given conditions, the energy equation reduces to k d d T dT d vz ρ Cv v r = r + µ dr r dr dr dr 2 Substituting for vz and realizing the vr = 0, we obtain 2 4U 2 µ r 2 k d d T d vz r = − µ =− 4 dr r dr dr R Multiply by r/k and integrate to obtain | v v IV - 7 | e-Text Main Menu | Textbook Table of Contents | Study Guide dT µU r =− + C1 k R4 dr 23 Integrate a second time to obtain T=− µ U 2 r4 4 k R4 + C1 ln r + C2 Since the term, ln r, approaches infinity as r approaches 0, C1 = 0. Applying the wall boundary condition, T = Tw at r = R, we obtain for C2 C2 = Tw + µ U2 4k The final solution then becomes µ U2 r4 T (r ) = Tw + 1 − 4 4k R The Stream Function The necessity to obtain solutions for multiple variables in multiple governing equations presents an obvious mathematical challenge. However, the stream function, Ψ , allows the continuity equation to be eliminated and the momentum equation solved directly for the single variable, Ψ . The use of the stream function works for cases when the continuity equation can be reduced to only two terms. For example, for 2-D, incompressible flow, continuity becomes ∂u ∂ v + =0 ∂x ∂y | v v IV - 8 | e-Text Main Menu | Textbook Table of Contents | Study Guide Defining the velocity components to be u= ∂Ψ ∂y and v= − ∂Ψ ∂x which when substituted into the continuity equation yields ∂ ∂ Ψ ∂ ∂ Ψ + − =0 ∂x∂y ∂y ∂x and continuity is automatically satisfied. Geometric interpretation of Ψ It is easily shown that lines of constant Ψ are flow streamlines. Since flow does not cross a streamline, for any two points in the flow we can write 2 2 1 1 Q1→2 = ∫ (V ⋅ n ) d A = ∫ d Ψ = Ψ2 − Ψ1 Thus the volume flow rate between two points in the flow is equal to the difference in the stream function between the two points. Steady Plane Compressible Flow In like manner, for steady, 2-D, compressible flow, the continuity equation is ∂ ∂ (ρ u) + (ρ v ) = 0 ∂x ∂y For this problem, the stream function can be defined such that ρu = ∂Ψ ∂y and ρv=− ∂Ψ ∂x | v v IV - 9 | e-Text Main Menu | Textbook Table of Contents | Study Guide As before, lines of constant stream function are streamlines for the flow, but the change in stream function is now related to the local mass flow rate by 2 2 1 1 & m1− 2 = ∫ ρ (V ⋅ n ) d A = ∫ d Ψ = Ψ 2 − Ψ1 Vorticity and Irrotationality The concept of vorticity and irrotationality are very useful in analyzing many fluid problems. The analysis starts with the concept of angular velocity in a flow field. Consider three points, A, B, & C, initially perpendicular at time t, that then move and deform to have the position and orientation at t + dt. The lines AB and BC have both changed length and incurred angular rotation dα and dβ relative to their initial positions.
