## Difference Between Laminar and Turbulent Flow

Knowing about the difference between laminar and turbulent flow is very necessary, if you are going to studying the fluid mechanics. They are just the type of fluid flow. When a fluid flows either in the channel or in pipes, it may be either laminar flow or turbulent flow. In this article, we will discuss […]

## Venturimeter Principle, Construction and Working with Diagram

What is Venturimeter? A venturimeter is a device used for measuring the rate of flow of a fluid flowing through a pipe. Main parts of Venturimeter The main parts of a venturimeter are:   A short converging part: It is that portion of the venturi where the fluid gets converges. Throat: It is the portion that

## Closed Cycle Gas Turbine: Construction, Working, diagram

A closed cycle gas turbine is a turbine in which the air is circulated continuously within the turbine. The components of this turbine are a compressor, heating chamber, the gas turbine which drives the generator and compressor, and a cooling chamber. Mian Parts The main components of the simplest form of a closed cycle gas

## Properties of Fluids in Fluid Mechanics

The various properties of fluids in fluid mechanics are mass density, weight density, specific volume, specific gravity, viscosity. Lets understand these properties of fluids one by one in detail. The knowledge of these properties is very essential to make the study of fluid mechanics comprehensive. Properties of fluids in fluid mechanics The properties of fluids

## Types of Fluids In Fluid Mechanics

Definition of Fluids In simple words, A substance that has a tendency to flow is called fluids. But If we talk in fluid mechanics then it is defined as the substance that deforms or flow under the application of applied shear force and continues to deform until the shear force is not removed. The different

## What is Density, Specific Weight, Specific Volume and Specific Gravity?

What is Inside? Density or mass density, Specific weight, Specific volume and Specific gravity Density or Mass Density:  Density (mass density) of a fluid is defined as the ratio of mass of a fluid to the volume of the fluid. In other words it is defined as the mass per unit volume of a fluid.

## What is Hydraulic Machine?

Hydraulic machine are those machines which convert hydraulic energy (energy possessed by water) into mechanical energy (which is further converted into electrical energy) or mechanical energy into hydraulic energy. The hydraulic machines, which convert the hydraulic energy into mechanical energy, are called turbine while the hydraulic machines which convert the mechanical energy into hydraulic energy
