Control Volume (Integral) Technique

Introduction: Techniques for solving flow problems

There are three different techniques for solving these types of problems:

  1. Control Volume Analysis
  2. Differential Analysis
  3. Dimensional Analysis and Experiment

Introduction to systems and control volumes

  1. Conservation of mass states that the mass of a system is constant.
    This can be written as the following equation:

    In this equation m = the mass of the system.
  2. Conservation of linear momentum which is a restatement of

    Newton's Second Law.
  3. Conservation of Energy
  4. Conservation of Angular Momentum
    We will not have time to study this, but see the text for details.
  5. Control Volume:
