ME2204 FLUID MECHANICS AND MACHINERY L T P C
(Common to Aeronautical, Mechanical, Automobile & Production) 3 1 0 4
OBJECTIVES
 The student is introduced to the mechanics of fluids through a thorough
understanding of the properties of the fluids. The dynamics of fluids is introduced
through the control volume approach which gives an integrated under standing of the
transport of mass, momentum and energy.
 The applications of the conservation laws to flow though pipes and hydraulics
machines are studied
UNIT I INTRODUCTION 12
Units & Dimensions. Properties of fluids – Specific gravity, specific weight, viscosity,
compressibility, vapour pressure and gas laws – capillarity and surface tension. Flow
characteristics: concepts of system and control volume. Application of control volume to
27
continuity equiation, energy equation, momentum equation and moment of momentum
equation.
UNIT II FLOW THROUG CIRCULAR CONDUITS 12
Laminar flow though circular conduits and circular annuli. Boundary layer concepts.
Boundary layer thickness. Hydraulic and energy gradient. Darcy – Weisbach equaition.
Friction factor and Moody diagram. Commercial pipes. Minor losses. Flow though pipes in
series and in parallel.
UNIT III DIMENSIONAL ANALYSIS 9
Dimension and units: Buckingham’s theorem. Discussion on dimensionless parameters.
