Advance Fluid Mechanics 2016 MODULE-I Lecture Note 1 INTRODUCTION Fluid is a substance that continually deforms (flows) under an applied shear stress. Fluids are a subset of the phases of matter and include liquids, gases, plasmas and, to some extent, plastic solids. Fluids are substances that have zero shear modulus or, in simpler terms, a fluid is a substance which cannot resist any shear force applied to it. Fluid mechanics is the branch of science which deals with the behavior of fluids(liquids or gases)at rest as well as in motion. It deals with the static, kinematics and dynamic aspects of fluids. The study of fluids at rest is called fluid statics. The study of fluid in motion is called fluid kinematics if pressure forces are not considered if pressure force is considered in fluid in motion is called fluid dynamics. PROPERTIES OF FLUIDS DENSITY or MASS DENSITY:The density, or more precisely, the volumetric mass density, of a substance is its mass per unit volume. The symbol most often used for density is ρ( Greek letter rho), Mathematically, density is defined as mass divided by volume m ρ= V whereρ is the density, m is the mass, and V is the volume. In some cases (for instance, in the United States oil and gas industry), density is loosely defined as its weight per unit volume. Prof P.C Swain Page 1
