For steady flow, all 3 coincide. 2. For unsteady flow, pattern changes with time, whereas pathlines and streaklines are generated as the passage of time Streamline: 0 which upon expansion yields the By definition we must have equation of the streamlines for a given time ̂ ̂ ̂ ̂ 0 , , where = integration parameter.

Equations of fluid mechanics can be expressed in different coordinate systems, which are chosen for convenience, e.g., application of boundary conditions: Cartesian ( , , ) or orthogonal curvilinear (e.g., , , ) or nonorthogonal curvilinear. A natural coordinate system is streamline coordinates ( , , ℓ); however, difficult to use since solution to flow problem (V) must be known to solve for steamlines. For streamline coordinates, since V is tangent to there is only one velocity component. V where 0 by definition. , , , Figure 4.8 Streamline coordinate system for twodimensional flow. 57:020 Mechanics of Fluids and Transport Processes Professor Fred Stern Fall 2009 Chapter 3 5 The acceleration is V where, V V V V V For V , V V Thus, (1) V 57:020 Mechanics of Fluids and Transport Processes Professor Fred Stern Fall 2009 Chapter 3 6 Figure 4.9 Relationship between the unit vector along the streamline, , and the radius of curvature of the streamline, Space increment: Note: 1 Time increment: 57:020 Mechanics of Fluids and Transport Processes Professor Fred Stern Fall 2009 Chapter 3 7 From (1), θ

Integration of the equation of motion to give the Bernoulli equation actually corresponds to the workenergy principle often used in the study of dynamics. This principle results from a general integration of the equations of motion for an object in a very similar to that done for the fluid particle. With certain assumptions, a statement of the workenergy principle may be written as follows: The work done on a particle by all forces acting on the particle is equal to the change of the kinetic energy of the particle. The Bernoulli equation is a mathematical statement of this principle. In fact, an alternate method of deriving the Bernoulli equation is to use the first and second laws of thermodynamics (the energy and entropy equations), rather than Newton’s second law. With the approach restrictions, the general energy equation reduces to the Bernoulli equation. An alternate but equivalent form of the Bernoulli equation is 2 along a streamline. Pressure head: Velocity head: Elevation head: The Bernoulli equation states that the sum of the pressure head, the velocity head, and the elevation head is constant along a streamline. 57:020 Mechanics of Fluids and Transport Processes Professor Fred Stern Fall 2009 Chapter 3 12 3.5 Static, Stagnation, Dynamic, and Total Pressure

At stagnation point, fluid velocity becomes zero and all of the kinetic energy converts into a pressure rize. Total pressure: At stagnation point = 0, (along a streamline) ∴ Stagnation pressure > static pressure by upstream . 57:020 Mechanics of Fluids and Transport Processes Professor Fred Stern Fall 2009 Chapter 3 13 The Pitotstatic tube (left) and typical Pitotstatic tube designs (right).

Typical devices for measuring flowrate in pipes. Three commonly used types of flow meters are illustrated: the orifice meter, the nozzle meter, and the Venturi meter. The operation of each is based on the same physical principles—an increase in velocity causes a decrease in pressure. The difference between them is a matter of cost, accuracy, and how closely their actual operation obeys the idealized flow assumptions. ), steady, inviscid, and incomWe assume the flow is horizontal ( pressible between points (1) and (2).

This phenomenon, called a vena contracta effect, is a result of the inability of the fluid to turn the sharp 90° corner. 57:020 Mechanics of Fluids and Transport Processes Professor Fred Stern Fall 2009 Chapter 3 23 Figure 3.14 Typical flow patterns and contraction coefficients The vena contracta effect is a function of the geometry of the outlet.

Two of these devices, the sluice gate and the sharpcrested weir, are discussed below under the assumption of steady, inviscid, incompressible flow. Sluice gate geometry We apply the Bernoulli and continuity equations between points on the free surfaces at (1) and (2) to give: 1 2 and 1 2 With the fact that 2 1 In the limit of , then 0: ⁄

Between points (1) and (2) the pressure and gravitational fields cause the fluid to accelerate from velocity to velocity . At , while at (2) the pressure is essentially atmospheric, (1) the pressure is 0. Across the curved streamlines directly above the top of the weir plate (section a–a), the pressure changes from atmospheric on the top surface to some maximum value within the fluid stream and then to atmospheric again at the bottom surface. For now, we will take a very simple approach and assume that the weir flow is similar in many respects to an orificetype flow with a free streamline. In this instance we would expect the average velocity across the top of the weir to be and the flow area for this rectangular weir to be proporproportional to 2 tional to . Hence, it follows that 2 i.e., 2 2 = proportionality coefficient 57:020 Mechanics of Fluids and Transport Processes Professor Fred Stern Fall 2009 Chapter 3 26 3.7 Energy grade line (EGL) and hydraulic grade line (HGL)
This part will be covered later at Chapter 5. 3.8 Limitations of Bernoulli Equation
Assumptions used in the derivation Bernoulli Equation: (1) Inviscid (2) Incompressible (3) Steady (4) Conservative body force 1) Compressibility Effects: The Bernoulli equation can be modified for compressible flows. A simple, although specialized, case of compressible flow occurs when the temperature of a perfect gas remains constant along the streamline—isothermal flow. Thus, we consider , where is constant (In general, , , and will vary). An equation similar to the Bernoulli equation can be obtained for isentropic flow of a perfect gas. For steady, inviscid, isothermal flow, Bernoulli equation becomes 1 2 The constant of integration is easily evaluated if location on the streamline. The result is 2 ln 2 , , and are known at some 57:020 Mechanics of Fluids and Transport Processes Professor Fred Stern Fall 2009 Chapter 3 27 2) Unsteady Effects: The Bernoulli equation can be modified for unsteady flows. With the inclusion of the unsteady effect ( ⁄ 0) the following is obtained: 0 (along a streamline) For incompressible flow this can be easily integrated between points (1) and (2) to give (along a streamline) 3) Rotational Effects Care must be used in applying the Bernoulli equation across streamlines. If the flow is “irrotational” (i.e., the fluid particles do not “spin” as they move), it is appropriate to use the Bernoulli equation across streamlines. However, if the flow is “rotational” (fluid particles “spin”), use of the Bernoulli equation is restricted to flow along a streamline. 4) Other Restrictions Another restriction on the Bernoulli equation is that the flow is inviscid. The Bernoulli equation is actually a first integral of Newton's second law along a streamline. This general integration was possible because, in the absence of viscous effects, the fluid system considered was a conservative system. The total energy of the system remains constant. If viscous effects are important the system is nonconservative and energy losses occur. A more detailed analysis is needed for these cases. The Bernoulli equation is not valid for flows that involve pumps or turbines. The final basic restriction on use of the Bernoulli equation is that there are no mechanical devices (pumps or turbines) in the system between the two points along the streamline for which the equation is applied. These devices represent sources or sinks of energy. Since the Bernoulli equation is actually one form of the energy equation, it must be altered to include pumps or turbines, if these are present. ...
