# Momentum Transport

Lecture 1
Francisco J. Trujillo

1. Introduction

What is fluid
mechanics?
Movement of fluids.
Well-developed body of

theory.
Describes the flow of
product through
equipment
So, how can we use
fluid mechanics in the
chemical industry?

## What is Computational Fluid

Dynamics (CFD)?
CFD is a branch of fluid mechanics that uses

## numerical methods and algorithms to solve and

analyse problems that involve fluid flows.
The equations that represent the detailed movement

## of fluids and how heat and mass moves within those

fluids are very complex. Those are the transport
equations of momentum, energy and mass.
CFD uses computers to perform the calculations

## required to solve the equations of transport which due

to their complexity cannot be solved analytically.

Two types of
problems
Micro - focus on specific details in

## flow field, e.g. in boundary layers.

Macro overall characterisation of
flow behaviour, e.g.
Flow through pipe to determine
required pump size.
Temperature profiles of food
cans in retort.
Flow through an extruder
energy requirement.
Packed bed reactor for
determining overall pressure
drop or temperature profile.

Example 1: Flow in a
tube
For simplicity, in engineering and applications it is

## said that the velocity of a fluid in a pipeline has a

certain value v. But in reality this is a an
averaged value. Close inspection shows that for
instance a laminar fluid flowing in a pipeline
exhibits a parabolic velocity profile.

Example 2: heat
exchangers

& P To Ti
Q& UATlm mc

## Heat exchangers are calculated and designed in a

simplified manner by :
Using a log mean temperature difference ignoring the
temperature and velocity profiles inside the exchanger.
Estimating overall heat transfer coefficients based on
empirical equations

Example 2: heat
exchangers

## Transport phenomena allows determining precise temperature and

velocity profiles, and without the need of using empirical equations
to calculate heat transfer coefficients (Heat Transfer was already
explained in the first part of the curse by A. Professor Tuan Pham).
This allows designing better exchangers while optimizing its
operation.

2. Vector Analysis

## Why reviewing vector

algebra?
The equations of transport of momentum,
energy, mass and chemical species are very long.
To simplify them vectorial symbols have been
created. Then those symbols need to be
understood.

## Vectors vs. scalars

If you walk 4 kilometres due north and then 3 kilometres due east, you

will have gone a total of 7 kilometres, but you are not 7 kilometres from
where you set out.

3k

4k

5k

Vectors describe quantities like this , which evidently do not add in the

ordinary way.
Vectors have direction as well as magnitude (length) and is essential to

## take both into account when you combine them.

Velocity, acceleration, force and momentum are examples of vectors
Scalars are quantities that have magnitude but no direction. Examples of

## scalars are mass, density, temperature.

Vectors
Bold type or a bar over a variable indicates

a vector.

v v vxi v y j vz k vx v y

vx

vz vx , v y , vz v y
v
z

## v means velocity vector.

All of the above are representations of

vectors

Magnitude of a Vectors
A vector has magnitude or norm: which is the length of

the arrow 3 k

## The magnitude or norm of the vector can be calculate as:

c

In the example:

c 42 32 5

Direction of a Vectors
The direction of a vector can be calculated as:
c

5k

as:

## In the example: arc tan 4 0.927 rad

Unit vector
The direction of the vector can also be given as a unit

## vector, which is a vector whose length or dimension is 1.

The unit vector is obtained by dividing each component

## of the vector by its norm :

## Multiplication of two vectors:

Dot product
Sometimes you need to multiply two vectors and you need the

result to be a scalar.
For instance the mass flow trough a pipeline can be calculated as:

m& vA
density

area

flow

velocity
This example is one dimensional as the velocity is perpendicular to
the area.
But what happens in a 3D example?

## Multiplication of two vectors:

Dot product
Assume that the yellow frame is a window and the red arrow is the velocity

vector of air.
The black arrow is the unit vector that indicates the direction of the window
(perpendicular direction to the plane):
b)

a)

air

c)

air

air

On which arrangement there will be a bigger mass flow entering the window?
On a) then b) and finally on c) where air cannot pass through the window

## Multiplication of two vectors:

Dot product
If the velocity of the air has a different angle compared to the area unit vector the

## mass flow will be different.

The area can be represented as the product of the Area (scalar) and the area unit
vector:
Area Au
Area

b)

a)

air

c)

air

## The dot product which is defined as:

The dot product can be used to give the correct

The velocity has changes direction but the norm is the same.
The dot product is given the right mass flow entering the window

## Multiplication of two vectors:

The dot product multiply two vectors and the result is a scalar:

## The dot product of two vectors u and v can also be calculated as

u v u v cos
So the dot product is:
zero for perpendicular
vectors
Maximum for parallel vectors

## Multiplication of two vectors:

The cross product multiply two vectors and the result is a
vector:

## Multiplication of two vectors:

cross product
The magnitude of the cross product can be interpreted as the
positive area of the parallelogram having a and b as sides
(figure below)

a b a b sin

## So the magnitude of the cross product vector is:

Zero for parallel vectors
Maximum for perpendicular vectors

terms of Kronecker delta i,j and the permutation

Multiplication of a tensor by a

Multiplication of a tensor by a scalar

## corresponds to multiplying each component of

the tensor by the scalar

s xx s xy s xz

components of the two tensors

## Dyadic product - making a

tensor from the product of
two vectors

For a long time we only considered that two vectors could only be
multiplied as a dot product to yield a scalar, or a cross product to
yield a vector. Having been introduced to a tensor, the third way to
multiply the two vectors is to obtain a tensor - a dyadic product.

## This is called the dyadic product which yields a tensor.

One way to remember the product is to notice that the first vector
provides the same row elements and the second vector the same
column elements.

result is a tensor.

Differential
calculus

Ordinary derivatives:
The derivative df/dx tell us how
rapidly the function f(x) varies
when we change the argument x
by a tiny amount dx:
df
dx
dx

df

## In other words, if we change x by

an amount dx, then f changes by
an amount df.
Geometrical interpretation: the
derivative df/dx is the slope of
the graph of f versus x.

## It looks like a vector but gives the instruction to

differentiate what follows
43/76

Suppose now that we
have a function of 3
variables. For instance
the temperature T(x, y,
z) in a room. We want
to generalize the notion
of derivative to
functions like T, which
depends not on one but
three spatial variables.
A derivative is supposed to tell us how fast the
function varies. What in which direction?

## The divergence has the appearance of dot product

Observe that the divergence of a vector is a scalar.
49/76

Divergence Geometrical
interpretation
The name divergence is well chosen. The divergence of a
vector is a measure of how much the vector spreads out
(diverges) from the point in question. It is a type of
derivative of a vector.

Figure (a) has a large positive divergence (if the arrows point
in, it will be a large negative divergence)
50/76
Figure (b) has zero divergence

Divergence Geometrical
interpretation
Notice how the divergence is not just a change of direction,
but as you can see on figures a) and c) the vectors are
becoming bigger as if there were source that augments the
vector field.

## So the vector will have a non zero divergence if the vector

field is spreading out in a expansive or diminish way.
The divergence is a type of measure of change of the vector

Divergence - utility

it is quick and easy to instead write:

interpretation

The name curl is also well chosen, because
measures
how much the vector v curls around a point in space. Thus,
the tree functions below have zero curl.

Stress and
strain
Some definitions:
Shear stress
Force applied to an area
The direction of the force

## acts tangentially to the

area ( at right angles to
normal vector that
characterize the area)

## Strain change in shape

caused by stress
Fluid cannot permanently
resist shear stresses

Note on Newtons
second law
Second law: the net force on a particle is equal to the time rate
of change of its linear momentum p (mass x velocity):

dp d mv
F p&

dt

d v
F m
ma
dt

## So force can also be defined as the rate change of momentum

(units of momentum divided by units of time). Because the shear
stress is a force per unit
F area

yx

## The unit of yx are (units of momentum divided by units of time and

units of area).
So we can think of stress as a momentum flux rate of change of
momentum per unit area.
78/76

## Two interpretations of shear

stress
1) yx can be interpreted as the force per unit area (shear stress) in the x
direction on a unit area in the y direction

vf profile

x

## 2) yx can also be interpreted as the flux of x-momentum in the positive y

direction. In the neighbourhood of the moving surface at y = 0 the fluid
acquires certain amount of x-momentum.
This fluid in turns, imparts momentum to the adjacent layer of liquid,
causing it to remain moving on the x direction.
Hence, x-momentum is being transmitted through the fluid in the positive
y direction.

## Equation 3.3 shows that the flux of momentum (yx) is proportional

equivalent phenomena.

For convenience, define the kinematic viscosity as:

## Viscosity has units of Pa.s in S.I.

## Lets see how to get the rate of flow of momentum

Momentum is equal to mass times velocity. So if we
multiply mass flow (kg/s) times velocity we will obtain the
rate of flow of momentum (momentum/time):

## momentum _ flow A v u Area v A vx v

If we divide by the area, we will obtain the flux of
momentum (momentum/ time / area )
