lec 10 Introduction to Fluid Mechanics Fluid Mechanics – The discipline within applied mechanics that is concerned with the behavior of liquids and gases at rest or in motion. Topics: e.g. fluid pressure, viscosity, fluid flow, turbulence Fluid – A substance that deforms continuously when acted on by a shearing (transverse) stress of any magnitude. Liquids are typically 1000 times as dense as gases. However, for both liquids and gases the density is great enough to model either as if they consist Units: British Gravitational and SI (metric) Mass in BG is measured in slugs: 1 slug = Properties of Fluids Density ρ = V/m or v = 1/ρ density, not spec vol. is used Density of water at 60°F: 1.94 slugs/ft 3 or 999 kg/m 3 Specific weight is weight per unit volume: γ = ρg
Specific gravity is the SG = ρ/ρ H 2 O at 4°C SG Viscosity – the “thickn
