application of fluid mechanics

why we learn fluid mechanics? Fluid mechanics is essentially the study of fluids either in motion (fluid in dynamic mode) or at rest (fluid in stationary mode). A fluid is defined as a material that continuously deforms under a constant load. There are five relationships that are most useful in fluid mechanics problems: kinematic, stress, conservation, regulating, and constitutive. The analysis of fluid mechanics problems can be altered depending on the choice of the system of interest and the volume of interest, which govern the simplification of vector quantities. By assuming that a fluid is a continuum, we make the assumption that there are no inhomogeneities within the fluid. Viscosity relates the shear rate to the shear stress. Definition of a fluid as Newtonian depends on whether th...
