Fluid mechanics notes for gate pdf


Conceptual figure used to define terms in the energy equation. Note the location fluid mechanics notes for gate pdf cricital flow, subcritical flow, and supercritical flow.

Note, energy and head are synonymous in Fluid Dynamics. See Pressure head for more details. For a given flow rate and channel geometry, there is a relationship between flow depth and total energy. This is illustrated below in the plot of energy vs.
