Fluids Applications
Bernoulli's Equation
TwoPhase Fluid Flow
 TwoPhase Fluid Flow Twophase flow occurs in a system containing gas and liquid with a meniscus separating the two phases
 Flow Instability Unstable flow can occur in the form of flow oscillations or flow reversals.
 Pipe Whip If a pipe were to rupture, the reaction force created by the high velocity fluid jet could cause the piping to displace and cause extensive damage
 Water Hammer Water hammer is a liquid shock wave resulting from the sudden starting or stopping of flow.
 Pressure spike Pressure spike is the resulting rapid rise in pressure above static pressure caused by water hammer.
 Steam Hammer Steam hammer is a power hammer driven by steam.
 Operational Considerations Practical Application Water and steam hammer are not uncommon occurrences in industrial plants.

 Airfoil AeroDynamics Characteristics Calculator Mach Number, Reynolds Number, Dynamics Pressure, Viscosity
 Flow Regimes Two flow regimes are laminar flow and turbulent flow
 Laminar Flow Laminar flow (or streamline flow) occurs when a fluid flows in parallel layers, with no disruption between the layers.
 Turbulent Flow Turbulent Flow Poseuille Law Equation
 Flow Velocity Profiles Not all fluid particles travel at the same velocity within a pipe.
 Average (Bulk) Velocity Ia single average velocity to represent the velocity of all fluid at that point in the pipe.
 Viscosity Viscosity is a fluid property that measures the resistance of the fluid to deforming due to a shear force.
 Ideal Fluid ideal fluid is one that is incompressible and has no viscosity.
 Reynolds Number Reynolds number, based on studies of Osborn Reynolds, is dimensionless number of the physical characteristics of the flow.
