## INTRODUCTION TO THERMALFLUID SCIENCES

Thermal-fluid sciences: The physical sciences that deal with
energy and the transfer, transport, and conversion of energy.

APPLICATION AREAS OF
THERMAL FLUID SCIENCE 1

1. Amount of energy transfer from a knowledge of the properties of
coolant, thermodynamics.
2. Size of inner and outer fins, heat transfer.
3. Size and type of the water pump, fluid mechanics.

Subcategories of

fluid mechanics

THERMODYNAMI
CS
The science that studies
energy and the
transformation of energy
into work, or moving things
around.

THERMODYNAMICS LAWS

## The First law

Conservation of energy principle
(energy change from on state to
another, cannot be destroyed).

## The Second law

Energy has quality and quantity,
actual processes occur in the
direction of decreasing
quality of energy.

HEAT TRANSFER

## The science that deal

with the determination
of the rates of such
energy transfers.
Heat
A form of energy that can be
transferred from one system to
another as a result of
temperature difference.

Transfer
Thermodynamics

Heat Transfer

## Amount (how much) of

heat transfer.
amount of heat from
thermos when hot coffee
cool down from 90 to 80
degrees

## Rate (how long) of heat

transfer

Fluid Mechanics
The sciences that deals with the
behavior of fluids at rest (fluids
statics) or fluids in motion (fluid
dynamics), and interaction of fluids
with solids or other fluids at the
boundaries.

DIMENSIONAL
HOMOGENEOUS
Every terms in an equation must have the same dimensions.
Spotting Errors in unit
E (kJ) = 25 kJ + 7 kJ/Kg
Fundamental Dimension: M,L,T
Obtain formulas from unit

fluids at rest (fluids statics) or fluids in motion
(fluid dynamics), and interaction of fluids with
solids or other fluids at the boundaries.

## Also referred as Fluid Dynamics.

Incompressible (density constant, e.g. Water, gases at low speed), HYDRODYNAMICS.
Compressible (density change significantly) fluid flow, nozzles at high speed, GAS DYNAMICS.
AERODYNAMICS, flow of gases (especially air) over bodies, aircraft, automobiles.

WHAT IS FLUID?
Fluid
A substance in the gas or liquid phase.
A liquid takes the shape of the container, free
surface under gravity.
Gases cannot form a free surface

STRESS (FORCE/AREA) ON
FLUID

## The normal stress and shear stress at the surface of a fluid

element.

DISTINCTION BETWEEN
SOLID AND FLUID

Solid
Resist an applied shear stress by deforming.
Stress proportional to strain.
Fluid
Deforms continuously under the influence of shear stress.
Stress proportional to strain rate.

VISCOSITY

## Density & specific weight measure

heaviness
What is measured by viscosity?
Easiness of fluid to flow.
Internal resistance of fluid to
motion.

VISCOSITY

## F = A, = F/A, is shear stress

Based on the experimental analysis,

FAV/h or F/AV/h
A:Interface area between fluid and plate

## Finally, V/h du/dy

= du/dy, is viscosity
[Compare with F = N]

Shear thinning viscosity , shearing rate (velocity gradient)

## Bingham plastic constant viscosity but at certain amount

shear stress, fluid starts shearing

BLOOD VISCOSITY
Blood non-Newtonian but could
behave as Newtonian at higher shear
rates (>100 1/s)

SURFACE TENSION

SURFACE TENSION
The cohesive forces between molecules down into a
liquid are shared with all neighboring atoms and
balance each other because of symmetry.
The attractive forces acting on the surface molecule
are not symmetric, and the attractive forces applied
by the gas molecules above are very small. It
experiences forces only sideways and downward,
which creates the surface tension effect.

SURFACE TENSION

## CAPILLARY EFFECT OF SURFACE

TENSION

Capillary effect is
the rise or fall of a
liquid in a small2
diameter tube.

CAPILLARY EFFECT
When the attractive forces are
between unlike molecules, they are
said to be adhesive forces. The
molecules and the walls of a glass
tube are stronger than the cohesive
forces (attraction between like
molecules) lead to an upward turning
meniscus at the walls of the vessel
and contribute to capillary action.
