Fundamentals of Equations of Fluid Flow: Bernoulli’s Theorem and it’s Application! Bernoulli’s Theorem: This theorem is a form of the well-known principle of conservation of energy. The theorem is stated as follows: In a steady continuous flow of a frictionless incompressible fluid, the sum of the potential head, the pressure head and the kinetic head […]

## Mouthpieces Types: Top 5 Types of Mouth Pieces used in Fluid Mechanics [with applications]

A mouth piece is a short pipe fitted externally or internally to an orifice. The length of the mouth piece is 2 to 3 times the diameter of the orifice to which it is fitted. Mouth pieces may be classified based on their position, their shape and the manner in which the mouth piece discharges. […]

## Application of Orifices and Its Characteristics | Fluid Mechanics

An orifice may be defined as an opening provided in the side or bottom of a tank, for the purpose of discharging the liquid contained in the tank. It should be noted that the opening will be considered as an orifice only when the liquid surface in the tank is above the upper edge of […]

## Notes on Flow through Open Channel: Formula, Alternative Methods and Examples| Fluid Mechanics

Notes on Flow through Open Channel: Formula, Alternative Methods and Examples! Introduction to Open Channel: An open channel means a passage through which water flows with its surface freely exposed to the atmosphere. The water at its surface is at atmospheric pressure throughout. The channel may be open or may be provided with a cover […]

## Boundary Layer Fluid Flow: Notes, Layer Thickness, Equations and Solved Problems | Fluid Mechanics

Boundary Layer Fluid Flow: Notes, Layer Thickness, Equations and Solved Problems and examples. Introduction to Boundary Layer: In an ideal fluid shear stresses are totally absent. So when an ideal fluid should flow over a boundary there are no resistances between the boundary and the fluid and the fluid simply slips smoothly over the boundary […]

## Forces Exerted by Moving Fluid on Immersed Bodies: Drag and Lift and Submerged Objects| Fluid Mechanics

When a body is placed in a moving fluid, a force is exerted on the body by the moving fluid. Similarly when a body moves within a fluid at rest then also a force is exerted on the body by the fluid. Motion of submarines, torpedos and aeroplanes are examples of this kind. Consider a […]

## Impact of Jet on a Plate or Vane: Notes and Viva Questions| Fluid Mechanics

Impact of Jet on a Plate or Vane: Notes and Viva Questions. Introduction to Jet: A jet of water issuing from a nozzle has a velocity and hence it possesses a kinetic energy. If this jet strikes a plate then it is said to have an impact on the plate. The jet will exert a […]
