1- Navier-Stokes equations:
The general equations of motion for viscous incompressible, Newtonian fluids may be written in the following form: x- direction:
2u 2u 2u u u u u p + u + v + w = g x + 2 + 2 + 2 - - - - - -(1) x y z x y z t x

y- direction:

2v 2v 2v v v v v p + u + v + w = g y + 2 + 2 + 2 - - - - - -(2) x y z y y z t x

=0 t

the Navier-Stokes equation in the x- direction (eq. 1) reduces to:

g x +

dp d 2u = 2 - - - - - - - - - (3) dx dy dh g x = g. sin = g dx

eq. 3 will be
d 2 u 1 d ( p + h ) = - - - - - - - - - -(4) dx dy 2

Integration of eq. 4:
du 1 d ( p + h ) = y+A dy dx 1 d ( p + h ) 2 u= y + Ay + B - - - - - - - - - - - (5) 2 dx

B.C (Two fixed parallel plates)

y=0 u=0 B=0 u=0 A= y=a a d ( p + h ) 2 dx

eq. 5 will be
u= 1 d ( p + h ) 2 y ay - - - - - - - - - - - -(6) 2 dx

B.C (One plate is fixed and the other plate moves with a constant velocity U) (Couette flow)
y=0 u=0 y=a B=0 U a d ( p + h ) u =U A = a 2 dx

eq. 5 will be
u= 1 d ( p + h ) 2 (y ay ) + Uy - - - - - - - - - - - (7) 2 dx a

For the case of horizontal parallel plates:

dh =0 dx

eq. 7 will be
u= 1 dp 2 (y ay ) + Uy - - - - - - - - - - - (8) 2 dx a

The location of maximum velocity umax may be found by evaluating zero. The volume flow rate is

du and setting it to dy

3- Hydrodynamic lubrication:
Sliding bearing Large forces are developed in small clearance when the surfaces are slightly inclined and one is in motion so that fluid is wedged into the decreasing space. Usually the oils employed for lubrication are highly viscous and the flow is of laminar nature.

Assumptions: The acceleration is zero. The body force is small and can be neglected. Also
2u 2u 2u 2u and y 2 z 2 y 2 x 2

The Navier-Stokes equation in the x-direction (eq. 1) reduces to:

d 2 u 1 dp = dy 2 dx

Integration:
u= 1 dp 2 y + Ay + B 2 dx

B.C

y=0 y = hx

u =U

B =U A= h x dp U 2 dx hx

u=0

u=

1 dp 2 (y hx y ) + U 1 hy 2 dx x

The volume flow rate in every section will be constant.

Q = w u.dy
0 hx

assume w = 1

** For a constant taper bearing:

h1 h2 l hx = (h1 x )

Sub in eq.(*) and solving for

dp 6U 12 Q = 2 dx (h1 x ) (h1 x )3

dp produces: dx

Integration gives:
p( x ) =

6U 6Q + C ---------(**) (h1 x ) (h1 x )2

B.C

x=0 x=l

p = po = 0 p = po = 0
Uh1h2 h1 + h2 and C= 6 U (h1 + h2 )

Q=

With these values inserted in eq.(**) we obtain the pressure distribution inside the bearing.
p( x ) = 6 Ux (h x h2 ) 2 h x (h1 + h2 )

The load that the bearing will support per unit width is:
F = p( x ).dx
0 l

where
k= h1 h2

4- Laminar flow between concentric rotating cylinders:

Consider the purely circulatory flow of a fluid contained between two long concentric rotating cylinders of radius R1 and R2 at angular velocities 1 and 2.

In this case the Navier-Stokes equations in cylindrical coordinates are used. r- direction:
2 ur ur u ur u ur 1 p 1 ur ur 1 2ur 2 u 2ur + ur + +w = + +g + r + t r z r r r r r r r 2 r 2 2 r 2 z 2 r

- direction:
u u u u u u u 1 p 1 u u 1 2u 2 ur 2 u + ur + + r + w = + + + + g r + t r r r z r r r r r 2 r 2 2 r 2 z 2

u =0 , =0 , t

p =0

body force = 0 The equation in - direction reduces to:

d 2 u d u + =0 dr 2 dr r

Integration:
1 d (ru ) = A r dr B ---------(i) u = Ar + r

B.C

r = R1 r = R2

u = R11 u = R22
2 R2 (2 1 ) 2 R2 R12

A = 1 + B=

2 R12 R2 (2 1 ) 2 R2 R12

Sub. in eq.(i) yields:

u = 1 2 R2 R12
2 2 (2 R22 1R12 )r R1rR2 (2 1 ) -------(ii)

The shear stress may be evaluated by the equation:

= r dr r
d u

By using eq.(ii):
2 2 R12 R2 (2 1 ) = 2 R2 R12 r 2

5- Example:
1- Using the Navier-Stokes equation in the flow direction, calculate the power required to pull (1m 1m) flat plate at speed (1 m/s) over an inclined surface. The oil between the surfaces has ( = 900 kg/m3 , = 0.06 Pa.s).The pressure difference between points 1 and 2 is (100 kN/m2) . Solution:

The Navier-Stokes equation in x- direction

2u 2u 2u u u u u p + u + v + w = g x + 2 + 2 + 2 x y z x y z t x 2u 2u =0 , We have: Acceleration =0 , v=0 , w=0 , x 2 z 2

The equation reduces to:

d 2 u 1 dp = gx dy 2 dx

Integration

du 1 dp = y gx y + A dy dx 1 dp 2 u= y g x y 2 + Ay + B 2 dx 2
y=0 y=b

B.C

(b=10 mm)
u=0 u = U

B=0 A= U b dp b + gx 2 dx 2 b

du 1 dp U b dp b = + y gx y gx dy dx b 2 dx 2

The shearing force on the moving plate:

F = o area F = du dy area
y =b

area=1 m2
F =

We have g x = g sin ,
F=

1- Using the Navier-Stokes equations, determine the pressure gradient along flow, the average velocity, and the discharge for an oil of viscosity 0.02 N.s/m2 flowing between two stationary parallel plates 1 m wide maintained 10 mm apart. The velocity midway between the plates is 2 m/s. [-3200 N/m2 per m ; 1.33 m/s ; 0.0133 m3/s] 2- An incompressible, viscous fluid is placed between horizontal, infinite, parallel plates as shown in figure. The two plates move in opposite directions with constant velocities U1 and U2. The pressure gradient in the x-direction is zero. Use the Navier-Stokes equations to derive expression for the velocity distribution between the plates. Assume laminar flow. [ u = (U 1 + U 2 ) U 2 ]
y b

3- Two parallel plates are spaced 2 mm apart, and oil ( = 0.1 N.s/m2 , S = 0.8) flows at a rate of 2410-4 m3/s per m of width between the plates. What is the pressure gradient in the direction of flow if the plates are inclined at 60o with the horizontal and if the flow is downward between the plates? [-353.2 kPa/m] 4- Using the Navier-Stokes equations, find the velocity profile for fully developed flow of water ( = 1.1410-3 Pa.s) between parallel plates with the upper plate moving as shown in figure. Assume the volume flow rate per unit depth for zero pressure gradient between the plates is 3.7510-3 m3/s. Determine: a- the velocity of the moving plate. b- the shear stress on the lower plate. c- the pressure gradient that will give zero shear stress at y = 0.25b. (b = 2.5 mm) d- the adverse pressure gradient that will give zero volume flow rate between the plates. [3 m/s ; 1.37 N/m2 ; 2.19 kN/m2 per m ; -3.28 kN/m2 per m] 5- A vertical shaft passes through a bearing and is lubricated with an oil ( = 0.2 Pa.s) as shown in figure. Estimate the torque required to overcome viscous resistance when the shaft is turning at 80 rpm. (Hint: The flow between the shaft and bearing can be treated as laminar flow between two flat plates with zero pressure gradient). [0.355 N.m] 6- Determine the force on the piston of the figure due to shear, and the leakage from the pressure chamber for U = 0. [295.1 N ; 1.63610 -8 m3/s]

7- A layer of viscous liquid of thickness b flows steadily down an inclined plane. Show that, by using the Navier-Stokes equations that velocity distribution is:
u=

(2by y 2 )sin and that the discharge per unit width is: Q = 3 b 3 sin 2

8- A wide moving belt passes through a container of a viscous liquid. The belt moving vertically upward with a constant velocity Vo, as illustrated in figure. Because of viscous forces the belt picks up a film of fluid of thickness h. Gravity tends to make the fluid drain down the belt. Use the Navier-Stokes equations to determine an expression for the average velocity vav of the fluid film as it is dragged up the belt. Assume the flow is laminar, steady, and uniform. [ vav = Vo

10- A plate 2 mm thick and 1 m wide is pulled between the walls shown in figure at speed of 0.4 m/s. The space over and below the plate is filled with glycerin ( = 0.62 N.s/m2). The plate is positioned midway between the walls. Using the Navier-Stokes equations, determine the force required to pull the plate at the speed given for zero pressure gradient; and the pressure gradient that will give zero volume flow rate. [496 N ; 372 kN/m2.m] 11- A slider plate 0.5 m wide constitutes a bearing as shown in figure. Estimate: a- the load carrying capacity. b- the drag. c- the power lost in the bearing. d- the maximum pressure in the oil and its location. [739.6 kN ; 348.6 N ; 348.6 W ; 12500 kN/m2 ; 150 mm]

12- Consider a shaft that turns inside a stationary cylinder, with a lubricating fluid in the annular region.
