CIVE1400: Fluid Mechanics Section 1: Fluid Properties We know that fluids flow under the action of a force, and the solids don’t but solids do deform. CIVE1400: Fluid Mechanics What use can we make of these ideas? In the analysis of fluids we often take small volumes (elements) and examine the forces on these. So we can say that xfluids lack the ability of solids to resist deformation. Take the rectangular element below. xfluids change shape as long as a force acts. smartworlD.asia What forces cause it to deform? (These definitions include both gasses and liquids as fluids.)

Forces acting along edges (faces), such as F, are know as shearing forces. The fluid “sticks” to the wall. From this we arrive at the definition: Moving away from the wall velocity increases to a maximum. smartworlD.asia A Fluid is a substance which deforms continuously, or flows, when subjected to shearing forces. This has the following implications for fluids at rest: v Plotting the velocity across the section gives “velocity profile” If a fluid is at rest there are NO shearing forces acting on it, and any force must be acting perpendicular to the fluid Change in velocity with distance is “velocity gradient” = CIVE1400: Fluid Mechanics Section 1: Fluid Properties 5 CIVE1400: Fluid Mechanics du dy Section 1: Fluid Properties 6

CIVE1400: Fluid Mechanics Section 1: Fluid Properties As fluids are usually near surfaces there is usually a velocity gradient. CIVE1400: Fluid Mechanics Section 1: Fluid Properties What use is this observation? Under normal conditions one fluid particle has a velocity different to its neighbour. Particles next to each other with different velocities exert forces on each other (due to intermolecular action ) …… It would be useful if we could quantify this shearing force. This may give us an understanding of what parameters govern the forces different fluid exert on flow. smartworlD.asia i.e. shear forces exist in a fluid moving close to a wall. We will examine the force required to deform an element. What if not near a wall? Consider this 3-d rectangular element, under the action of the force F. v No velocity gradient, no shear forces.
