MEG 2700 Fluid Mechanics: Application Resources

Theoretical fluid mechanics concepts can be applied to real-world devices to gain a much more thorough and realistic grasp on the topics at hand in the subject. Professional and regulatory standards are relevant to provide an understanding of real world engineering expectations.

Standards

American National Standards Institute (ANSI)

ANSI is a private, non-profit organization that administers and coordinates the U.S. voluntary standards and conformity assessment system. The Institute works in close collaboration with stakeholders from industry and government to identify and develop standards- and conformance-based solutions to national and global priorities. 


American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM)

ASTM International is a non-profit organization that provides a forum for the development and publication of international voluntary consensus standards for materials, products, systems, and services.


International Standards Organization (ISO)

ISO is an independent, non-governmental international organization that develops voluntary, consensus-based, market relevant International Standards that support innovation and provide solutions to global challenges.


National Fluid Power Association (NFPA)

NFPA coordinates standardization work in specific areas of activity relating to fluid power.


Information Handling Services (IHS) Markit

IHS Markit offers a broad base of engineering data including hardcopy and PDF technical industry standards; government and military standards; and highly acclaimed reference books, manuals, and comprehensive guides. 

Application Articles

+ "Thermal analysis of high viscosity deicing fluid in the heating system"

This article presents a thermal analysis of high viscosity deicing fluids to determine which is most ideal for aircrafts. The concept of viscosity is applied in comparing various high viscous fluids.


+ "A hybrid computational approach for a Jeffery-Hamel flow in non-parallel walls"

The authors of this article develop a model of the velocity profile for a flow between two non-parallel plates. They compare their own model with other models using more complicated methods while also graphically studying the effect of the Reynolds number on the velocity profile.


+ "Evaluation of viscosity and shear stress in a telechelic polymer when varied shear rates are applied"

This article addresses shear stress in gel as compared to other non-Newtonian fluids. The mathematical calculation of shear stress is applied for each respective fluid, and differences between non-Newtonian fluids are discussed.


+ "Mathematical modeling of pipelines transporting different fluids"

The authors of this article develop a model of pressure, velocity, and density for flow through a pipeline transporting various fluids. Four different forms of the model are derived using both theoretical and empirical approaches; the model is validated experimentally using a real industrial pipeline.


+ "CFD- and Bernoulli-based pressure drop estimates: A comparison using patient anatomies from heart and aortic valve segmentation of CT images"

This article applies fluid mechanics concepts to the flow of blood in human anatomy, describing the effects of pressure drops in blood flow. A comparison is presented between a theoretical approach using the Bernoulli equation and an experimental approach through computational fluid dynamics (CFD). 


+ "General overview of drag"

This article presents a commentary on drag reduction for aircrafts, addressing basic sources, drag prediction techniques, and various factors attributing to drag over aircraft features. An appendix provides further information on drag contributions, many representing varying drag coefficients.
