Flow Analysis

Control Volumes
Fluid Mechanics - I : Chapter 5

Introduction

## Practical problems in fluid mechanics require analysis of the behavior of the

contents of a finite region in space ( control volume ; CV )
analyses
The bases of this analysis method are some fundamental principles of physics,
applied to a CV namely,
Conservation of mass
Newtons second law of motion
The first and second1 laws of thermodynamics

The resultant techniques presented in this Chapter are powerful and applicable to
a wide variety of fluid mechanical circumstances that require engineering
judgment
Furthermore, the finite control volume formulas are easy to interpret physically
and thus are not difficult to use
In fluid mechanics, the control volume or Eulerian view is generally less
complicated and, therefore, more convenient to use than the system or
Lagrangian view
Fluid Mechanics - I : Chapter 5

Introduction

The control volume formulas are derived from the equations representing basic
laws applied to a collection of mass (a system)
The concept of a control volume and system occupying the same region of space
at an instant (coincident condition) and use of the Reynolds transport theorem
(Eqs. 4.19 and 4.23) are key elements in the derivation of the control volume
equations
Integrals are used throughout the chapter for generality. Volume integrals can
accommodate spatial variations of the material properties of the contents of a
control volume
Control surface area integrals allow for surface distributions of flow variables
However, in this chapter, for simplicity we often assume that flow variables are
uniformly distributed over cross-sectional areas where fluid enters or leaves the
control volume
This uniform flow is called one-dimensional flow
In Chapters 8 and 9, when we discuss velocity profiles and other flow variable
distributions, the effects of non-uniformities will be covered in more detail
Fluid Mechanics - I : Chapter 5

## A system is defined as a collection of unchanging contents, so the conservation of

mass principle for a system is simply stated as
Time rate of change of the system mass = 0
DM sys
0
or
Dt
where Msys is the system mass, M sys dv

For a system and a fixed, non-deforming control volume that are coincident at an
instant of time, the Reynolds transport theorem (Eq. 4.19) with that B = Mass and b=
1, allows us to state

## For conservation of mass (continuity eqn ),

In words, above Eqn states that to conserve mass the time rate of change of the
mass of the contents of the control volume plus the net rate of mass flow through
the control surface must equal zero
Actually, the same result could have been obtained more directly by equating the
rates of mass flow into and out of the control volume to the rates of accumulation
and depletion of mass within the control volume (See Section 3.6.2)
It is reassuring, however, to see that the Reynolds transport theorem works for this
simple-to-understand case

For compressible flow the density and velocity are not uniform.
For compressible flows, we will normally consider a uniformly
distributed fluid density at each section of flow and allow density
changes to occur only from section to section

Fixed, Non-Deforming Control Volume
In many applications of fluid mechanics, an appropriate
control volume to use is fixed and non-deforming
Several example problems that involve the continuity
equation for fixed, non-deforming control volumes (Eq. 5.5)
illustrates use of such CVs

Moving, Non-deforming Control Volume
In many applications, Fluid Flow Analysis involves moving bodies, Gas Turbine
Engine of flying aircraft and we use relative velocity (W) in our analysis as discussed
in last chapter; Section 4.4.6
That is, V = W + VCV
Where V, is the fluid velocity seen by a stationary observer and W is relative velocity

For a system and a moving, non-deforming control volume that are coincident at an
instant of time, the Reynolds transport theorem (Eqn. 4.23, 5.5) for a moving control

From Eqns. 5.1 and 5.15, we can get the control volume expression for conservation
of mass (the continuity equation) for a moving, non-deforming control volume,
namely,

## Continuity Equation /(Contd.)

Deforming Control Volume
Occasionally, a deforming control volume can simplify the solution of a problem. A deforming
control volume involves changing volume size and control surface movement
Thus, the Reynolds transport theorem for a moving control volume can be used for this case,
and Eqs. 4.23 and 5.1 lead to
DM sys
(5.17)
dv W n dA 0
CV
CS

t
The time rate of change term, (1st Term on RHS) is usually nonzero and must be carefully
evaluated because the extent of the control volume varies with time
The second term on RHS (mass flowrate term), must be determined with the relative velocity, W,
the velocity referenced to the control surface.

Since the control volume is deforming, the control surface velocity (VCS) is not necessarily
uniform and identical to the control volume velocity, as was true for moving, non-deforming
control volumes
For Deforming CV, the absolute velocity is : V = W + VCS
where VCS is the velocity of the control surface as seen by a fixed observer. The relative
velocity, W, must be ascertained with care wherever fluid crosses the control surface
See examples 5.8 & 5.9 illustrating the use of Eqn 5.17

## Newtons second law of motion for a system is

Since momentum is mass times velocity, thus the momentum of a small particle of
mass dv is V dv
Thus, the momentum of the entire system is sys V dv and Newtons law can be
written as
V dv F

sys

sys

Any reference or coordinate system for which this statement is true is called
inertial
A fixed coordinate system is inertial
A coordinate system that moves in a straight line with constant velocity and is
thus without acceleration is also inertial
We proceed to develop the control volume formula for this important law

## The Linear Momentum /(Contd.)

When a control volume is coincident with a system at an instant of time, the forces
acting on the system and the forces acting on the contents of the coincident control
volume (see Fig ) are instantaneously identical, that is,

## For a system and fixed coincident non-deforming CV

the Reynolds transport theorem for (Velocity and System
Momentum) can be written as

The forces involved in Eq. 5.22 are body and surface forces that act on what is contained in
the control volume
The only body force we consider in this chapter is the one associated with the action of gravity.
We experience this body force as weight.
The surface forces are basically exerted on the contents of the control volume by material just
outside the control volume in contact with material just inside the control volume. For example,
a wall in contact with fluid can exert a reaction surface force on the fluid it bounds
Similarly, fluid just outside the control volume can push on fluid just inside the control volume at
a common interface, usually an opening in the control surface through which fluid flow occurs
An immersed object can resist fluid motion with surface forces
The linear momentum equation for an inertial control volume is a vector equation (Eq. 5.22)
In engineering applications, components of this vector equation resolved along orthogonal
coordinates, for example, x, y, and z (rectangular coordinate system) or r, and x (cylindrical
coordinate system), will normally be used
A simple example involving steady, incompressible flow is considered first,(see Ex 5.10& 5.11)

Moment-of-Momentum Equation

## Using Newtons second law of motion, we studied a useful relationship between

forces and linear momentum flow.
Now, by forming the moment of the linear momentum and the resultant force
associated with each particle of fluid with respect to a point in an inertial coordinate
system, we will develop a moment-of-momentum equation that relates torques
and angular momentum flow for the contents of a control volume
When torques are important, the moment-of-momentum equation is often more
convenient to use than the linear momentum equation.
Application of Newtons second law of motion to a particle of fluid yields

If we form the moment of each side of Eq. 5.30 with respect to the origin of an
inertial coordinate system,Dwe obtain

An important category of fluid mechanical problems that is readily solved with the
help of the moment-of-momentum equation (Eq. 5.42) involves machines that rotate
or tend to rotate around a single axis
Examples of these machines include rotary lawn sprinklers, ceiling fans, lawn mower
blades, wind turbines, turbochargers, and gas turbine engines. As a class, these
devices are often called turbo-machines
Eqn. 5.42 can be simplified in several ways :
We assume that flows considered are one-dimensional (uniform distributions
of average velocity at any section)

## Steady or steady-in-the-mean cyclical flows i.e. t r x V v 0

CV
We work only with the component of Eq. 5.42 resolved along the axis of
rotation
Using above simplifications, we will see how it looks like and is applied to various
situations
