www.Vidyarthiplus.com S K Mondal’s Properties of Fluids Chapter 1 Theory at a Glance (for IES, GATE, PSU) Definition of Fluid A fluid is a substance which deforms continuously when subjected to external shearing forces. Characteristics of Fluid 1. It has no definite shape of its own, but conforms to the shape of the containing vessel. 2. Even a small amount of shear force exerted on a fluid will cause it to undergo a deformation which continues as long as the force continues to be applied. 3. It is interesting to note that a solid suffers strain when subjected to shear forces whereas a fluid suffers Rate of Strain i.e. it flows under similar circumstances. Concept of Continuum The concept of continuum is a kind of idealization of the continuous description of matter where the properties of the matter are considered as continuous functions of space variables. Although any matter is composed of several molecules, the concept of continuum assumes a continuous distribution of mass within the matter or system with no empty space, instead of the actual conglomeration of separate molecules. Describing a fluid flow quantitatively makes it necessary to assume that flow variables (pressure, velocity etc.) and fluid properties vary continuously from one point to another. Mathematical descriptions of flow on this basis have proved to be reliable and treatment of fluid medium as a continuum has firmly become established. For example density at a point is normally defined as Here Δ is the volume of the fluid element and m is the mass If Δ is very large ρ is affected by the inhomogeneities in the fluid medium. Considering another extreme if Δ is very small, random movement of atoms (or molecules) would change their number at different times. In the continuum approximation point density is defined at the smallest magnitude of Δ , before statistical fluctuations become significant. This is called continuum limit and is denoted by Δ c. One of the factors considered important in determining the validity of continuum model is molecular density. It is the distance between the molecules which is Page 4 of 307 www.Vidyarthiplus.com
