EGM 6812, F11, University of Florida, M. Sheplak 1/20 Section 7, Incompressible Flows 7 Incompressible Flows 7.1 Conditions for Incompressibility Incompressible fluid : thermodynamic term Incompressible flow : fluid mechanics term Define : incompressible flow: fractional change of density of a fluid particle is zero: 1 0 D Dt , which means that compressibility effects in the flow are negligible with respect to other effects As a result, via continuity, 0 V  “divergence free” or solenoidal velocity field “Dilatation” or rate of expansion is zero: 1 0 DV V V Dt   Why is it so important to establish a flow as incompressible? Continuity equation simplifies to a kinematic condition, 0 V  . Stokes’ hypothesis is automatically met. The energy equation is decoupled from the continuity and momentum equations. As we will see below there are five conditions for incompressibility, all of which MUST be met for the flow to be considered incompressible. Note: This is DIFFERENT than the way Panton approaches this topic in Chapter 10. This class emphasizes Batchelor’s approach 1 0 D V Dt    or 1 V D L Dt  , where V typical velocity L typical length Recall from thermodynamics , s p , (NOTE : , T p is treated in Panton) 2 0 1 p s c d dp ds p s , where 0 c is the isentropic speed of sound , 0 c RT ( a RT is also used) Replace     D d Dt

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
