Study of the fundamentals of fluid flows. Application to pipe flow and flow over immersed bodies.
Acquired knowledge that will allow:
- the hydrodynamic and energetic analysis and project of a fluid transport system;
- the analysis and quantification of the forces involved in the flow of a fluid around an immersed object.
1-Introduction and basic considerations
Some characteristics of fluids. Analysis of fluid behavior. Viscosity.
Pressure at a point. Basic equation for pressure field. Manometry. Hydrostatic on a plane surface and on a curved surface.
3- Fluid Kinematics
Velocity field- Eurelian and Lagrangian descriptions. Steady and unsteady flows. Streamlines, streaklines and pathlines. Accelaration field- material derivative. Streamline coordinates
4-The Bernoulli Equation
The Bernoulli equation along a streamline. Physical interpretation. Free jets, confined flows and flowrate measurements
5- Finite Control Volume Analysis
The Reynolds Transport Theorem. Conservation of mass- the continuity equation. Energy equation. Linear momentum equation. Examples of application.
6- Similitude, Dimensional Analysis, and Modeling.
Dimensional Analysis. Buckingham Pi Theorem. Common dimensionless groups in fluid mechanics. Modeling and similitude. Application to flow through closed conduits and flow around immersed bodies.
7- Viscous Flow in Pipes
Laminar and Turbulent flows. Poiseuille equation. Laminar flow between concentric tubes and along a wetted column. Fully turbulent flow, description and velocity profile.
8- Pipe Flow
The Moody chart. Minor losses and noncircular conduits. Single pipes and multiple pipe systems. Pipe flowrate measurements.
9- Flow Over Immersed Bodies
Boundary layer over a flat plate. Drag and lift forces. Terminal velocity of a sphere.
In the classes, the fundamental concepts are exposed. Illustrative applications of these concepts are solved.
Attendance to classes in accordance with the regulations of FEUP.
The evaluation of this course can be done in two tests during the classes and in a final exam.
The final mark (CF) is calculated by:
CF = 0,3 Tests + 0,7 Final Exam
Final exam, according to the calendar prepared by the direction of MIEQ.
