Fluids Lab 1 Lecture Notes 1. Bernoulli Equation 2. Pitot-Static Tube 3. Airspeed Measurement 4. Pressure Nondimensionalization Reading: Anderson 3.2, 1.5 Bernoulli Equation Definition For every point s along a streamline in constant-density frictionless ﬂow, the local speed V ( s ) = | V | and local pressure p ( s ) are related by the Bernoulli Equation 1 p + V 2 = p o (1) 2 This p o is a constant for all points along the streamline, even though p and V may vary. This is illustrated in the plot of p ( s ) and p o ( s ) along a streamline near a wing, for instance. s p p o 2 V 1 2 s Standard terminology is as follows. p = static pressure 1 �V 2 = dynamic pressure 2 p o = stagnation pressure, or total pressure Also, a commonly-used shorthand for the dynamic pressure is 1 �V 2 q. 2 Uniform Upstream Flow Case Many practical ﬂow situations have uniform ﬂow somewhere upstream, with V V ( x, y, z ) = and p ( x, y, z ) = p at every upstream point. This uniform ﬂow can be either at rest with 1

V = 0 Reservoir/Jet Wind Tunnel V = const. const. p = const. p = V(x,y,z) p(x,y,z) V(x,y,z) p(x,y,z) V V 0 (as in a reservoir), or be moving with uniform velocity = 0 (as in a upstream wind tunnel section), as shown in the figure. In these situations, p o is the same for all streamlines, and can be evaluated using the upstream conditions in equation (1).

### 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.
