xThe nature of a fluid is different to that of a solid
xIn fluids we deal with continuous
streams of fluid.
In solids we only consider individual elements.
In this section we will consider how we
can classify the differences in nature
of fluids and solids.
What do we mean by nature of a fluid?

Fluids are clearly different to solids.
But we must be specific.
We need some definable basic
physical difference.

So we can say that

We know that fluids flow under the
action of a force, and the solids don’t but solids do deform.
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.
xfluids lack the ability of solids to
resist deformation.
Take the rectangular element below.
xfluids change shape as long as a
force acts.
What forces cause it to deform?
(These definitions include both
gasses and liquids as fluids.)

CIVE1400: Fluid Mechanics
Consider a fluid flowing near a wall.
- in a pipe for example -
F
C
D
Fluid next to the wall will have zero velocity.
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.
A Fluid is a substance which deforms continuously,
or flows, when subjected to shearing forces.
TU
This has the following implications
for fluids at rest:
JN
If a fluid is at rest there are NO shearing forces acting
on it, and
any force must be acting perpendicular to the fluid

v
Plotting the velocity across the section gives
“velocity profile”
Change in velocity with distance is
“velocity gradient” =

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