CARLETON UNIVERSITY Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering LECTURE OUTLINE MAAE 2300 Lectures: 3 hr/wk Fluid Mechanics I Lab/PA: 3 hr/wk ______________________________ Week 1 Introduction . Applications of fluid mechanics. Definitions: fluid, continuum concept, no-slip condition. Fluid properties. Units and dimensions. Pressure and shear stress. Pressure distribution in a fluid in a gravitational field. 2 The atmosphere. Pressure measurement: mercury barometer, manometers. Effect of acceleration on the pressure distribution in a fluid: examples. 3 Fluid dynamics . Streamlines and streamtubes. Steady flow. One-dimensional flow. Control volume approach. Continuity equation. 4 Linear momentum equation for a control volume. 5 Application of linear momentum to steady flows. 6 Euler and Bernoulli equations. Bernoulli equation as an energy equation. Dynamic and total pressure. Applications of Bernoulli: measurement of flow rate (bellmouth inlet, venturi, orifice meter). 7 Angular momentum equation for a control volume. Application to steady flows. 8 Steady-flow energy equation (SFEE). Effects of friction: losses. Concept of hydraulic head. Pump or turbine power; efficiency. 9 Viscous flow: laminar versus turbulent flow. Pipe flow analysis: Moody chart. Flow over immersed bodies: boundary layers, separation, drag. 10 Fluid statics . Forces on plane submerged surfaces. Centre of pressure. Examples 11 Forces on curved submerged surfaces. Examples. Stresses in pipes and vessels due to internal pressure. 12 Forces on submerged bodies: buoyancy. Stability of submerged and floating bodies: centre of buoyancy, metacentre. 13 Review References : Manual: MAAE 2300 Course Manual (Mandatory) Recommended text: F.M. White, Fluid Mechanics, McGraw-Hill (Any edition).
