2. WE HAVE LOOKED AT.. • Why should we study properties of atmosphere? • Ideal Gas Law: p = rRT • Variation of Temperature with Altitude • Variation of Pressure with Altitude • Variation of Density with Altitude • Tables of Standard Atmosphere

3. TOPICS TO BE COVERED • Incompressible flow • Streamlines and stream tubes • Conservation of Mass (Continuity)

4. Incompressible Flow • Air is a compressible fluid. • Its density WILL change if temperature changes, or if some external force is applied. • Example: A child squeezing a balloon • A flow is said to be incompressible if there are no changes in density attributable to (or caused by) the velocity or speed of the flow. • Theory and observations in wind tunnels suggest that most flows may be treated as incompressible (I.e. constant density) until the Mach number is sufficiently high (>0.4 or so.)

5. What has flow speed got to do with compressibility? Fluid particles send out signals in the form of acoustic waves to the surrounding fluid, indicating their motion. If there is sufficient time for the sound waves to travel before the fluid particle arrives, the fluid particles downstream will “hear” the message and clear out. Otherwise, there will be a crush (compression), or even a stampede (shock wave).

6. Shocks form when the acoustic waves generated by the air particles in front of the body can not outrun the body. Shocks

7. Streamlines in Steady Flow • Streamlines describe the path the fluid particles will take. • At any point on the streamline, the flow velocity is tangential tothe streamline. • Viscosity alters the shape of streamlinesaround bluff bodies. • Scientists inject smoke particles into streamlines to make them visible tothe naked eye. Inviscid (ideal) flow Viscous flow

8. Streamlines over a Cylinder(Low Reynolds Number of 10)

9. Streamlines over a Cylinder(High Reynolds Number of 2000)

10. Streamlines over an AirfoilatHigh Angles of Attack Flow Separation

11. Continuity • Consider a stream tube, i.e. a collection of streamlines that form a tube-like shape. • Within this tube mass can not be created or destroyed. • The mass that enters the stream tube from the left (e.g. at the rate of 1 kg/sec) must leave on the right at the same rate (1 kg/sec).

12. Continuity Rate at which mass leaves=r2A2V2 Rate at which mass enters=r1A1V1 Area A1 Density r1 Velocity V1 Area A2 Density r2 Velocity V2

13. Continuity In compressible flow through a “tube” rAV= constant In incompressible flow, r does not change. Thus, AV = constant

14. Continuity (Continued..) AV = constant If Area between streamlines is high, the velocity is low and vice versa. Low Velocity High Velocity

15. Continuity (Continued..) High Velocity AV = constant If Area between streamlines is high, the velocity is low and vice versa. In regions where the streamlines squeeze together, velocity is high. Low Velocity

16. Venturi Tube is a DeviceforMeasuring Flow Ratewe will study later. High velocity Low velocity
