Asymptotic modelling of fluid flow phenomena

For the fluctuations round the capability yet particularly fluctuations, and showing within the following incompressible method of equations: on any wall; at preliminary time, and are assumed recognized. This contribution arose from dialogue with J. P. Guiraud on makes an attempt to push ahead our final co-signed paper (1986) and the most concept is to place a stochastic constitution on fluctuations and to spot the massive eddies with part of the chance house.

Finally, if the Reynolds number is neither large nor small, no general conclusions can be drawn. To illustrate this very powerful idea, consider two simple examples. First, the drag on your ball: Suppose you kick a soccer ball ðdiameter = 8:75 in:Þ so it moves at 60 mph. 10) for this case is about 400,000—by any measure a large number; hence the drag on the soccer ball is almost entirely due to the pressure build-up in front of it.

On the other hand, when a body moves through a fluid, stresses are developed within the fluid. The difference between a fluid and a solid is, as we’ve seen, that stresses in a fluid are mostly generated by motion rather than by deflection. Imagine the surface of a fluid particle in contact with other fluid particles, and consider the contact ! , of the surface at some point C. The force being generated between the particles. Consider a portion, δA ! orientation of δA is given by the unit vector, n^, shown in Fig.

We define a liquid as  “wetting” a surface when the contact angle θ < 90 . By this definition, the car’s surface was wetted before waxing, and not wetted after. This is an example of effects due to surface tension. Whenever a liquid is in contact with other liquids or gases, or in this case a gas/solid surface, an interface develops 31 32 Chapter 2 Fundamental Concepts θ < 90° (a) A “wetted” surface Water droplet θ > 90° (b) A nonwetted surface Fig. 11 Surface tension effects on water droplets.
