Fluid Kinematics
Velocity Field
Continuum hypothesis:
fluid is made up of fluid particles;
each particle contains numerous molecules;
infinitesimal particles of a fluid are tightly packed together
Thus, motion of a fluid is described in terms of fluid

INTRODUCTION
Characteristics of fluids
A fluid may be liquid, vapour or gas. It has no permanent
shape but takes up the shape of a containing vessel or
channel or is shaped by external forces (e.g. the atmosphere).
A fluid consists of atoms/molecules in

FLUID STATICS
Introduction
In many fluid problems fluid is at rest or moves as a rigid body
When fluid is at rest (hydrostatic condition), the pressure variation is due only to
the weight of the fluid and may be calculated by integration. Important applic

Viscous Flow in Pipes
Introduction
Flow of viscous, incompressible fluid in pipes and ducts will be considered.
Pipe is of round cross section, duct is not round.
Basic components of a typical pipe system include pipes, fittings, valves, pumps or
turbines

INTRODUCTION
Characteristics of fluids
For a solid, application of a shear stress causes a deformation
which, if modest, is not permanent and solid regains original
position.
