Fluid statics print that page


Due to the fundamental nature of fluids, a fluid cannot remain at rest under the presence of a shear stress . However, fluids can exert pressure normal to any contacting surface. If a point in the fluid is thought of as an infinitesimally small cube, then it follows from the principles

Fluid dynamics print that page

In physics , fluid dynamics is a sub-discipline of fluid mechanics that deals with fluid flow —the natural science of fluids ( liquids and gases ) in motion. It has several subdisciplines itself, including aerodynamics (the study of air and other gases in motion) and hydrodynamics | 2011/10/1 3:59:26

History of fluid mechanics print that page

The history of fluid mechanics , the study of how fluids move and the forces on them, dates back to the Ancient Greeks. Contents 1 Antiquity 1.1 Archimedes 1.2 The Alexandrian school 1.3 Sextus Julius Frontinus 2 Middle Ages 2.1 Islamicate physicists 2.2 Islamicate | 2010/9/25 10:48:37

Fluid pressure print that page

motions create only negligible changes in the pressure. Such conditions conform with principles of fluid statics . The pressure at any given point of a non-moving (static) fluid is called the hydrostatic pressure . Closed bodies of fluid are either "static," when the fluid is not moving | 2010/9/26 15:14:10

Fluid mechanics print that page


The study of fluid mechanics goes back at least to the days of ancient Greece , when Archimedes investigated fluid statics and buoyancy and formulated his famous law known now as the Archimedes' Principle . Rapid advancement in fluid mechanics began with Leonardo da Vinci (observation

Statics print that page

point. Equilibrium Equations The static equilibrium of a particle is an important concept in Statics . A particle is in equilibrium only if the resultant of all forces acting on the particle is equal to zero. In a rectangular coordinate system the equilibrium equations can be represented | 2011/4/3 22:14:12

Fluid print that page

In physics , a fluid is a substance that continually deforms (flows) under an applied shear stress , no matter how small. Fluids are a subset of the phases of matter and include liquids , gases , plasmas and, to some extent, plastic solids . In common usage, fluid " is often used as | 2011/4/21 1:18:06

Mechanical engineering print that page


The engineering field requires an understanding of core concepts including mechanics , kinematics , thermodynamics , materials science , and structural analysis . Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided engineering and product lifecycle management

Friction print that page

Kinetic energy is converted to heat whenever motion with friction occurs, for example when a viscous fluid is stirred. Another important consequence of many types of friction can be wear , which may lead to performance degradation and/or damage to components. Friction is a component of the | 2011/10/4 13:13:17
