## NON FLOW AND FLOW PROCESSES CLASS NOTES FOR ENGINEERING

NON FLOW AND FLOW PROCESSES CLASS NOTES FOR ENGINEERING Both non flow & flow processes play an important role in thermodynamics. These are part of various thermodynamic cycles. Cycles are power producing & power consuming. 1. Non Flow Processes The boundary of a non-flow process can be fixed, moving or imaginary. These are compression…

## FLOW MESUREMENT CLASS NOTES FOR ENGINEERING

FLOW MEASUREMENT CLASS NOTES FOR ENGINEERING  A flow meter measures the flow rate of a fluid. The most common flow meters are (i) Differential Pressure Flow meters (ii) Velocity Flow meters (iii) Positive Displacement Flow meters (iv) Mass Flow meters (v) Open Channel Flow meters Differential Pressure Flow meters An obstruction in the flow creates…

## TYPES OF FLUID FLOW CLASS NOTES FOR ENGINEERS

TYPES OF FLUID FLOW CLASS NOTES FOR ENGINEERS There are different types of flows for a moving fluid. The study of moving fluids is quite complex, tedious and time consuming. But the analysis can be made simple by making one or more simplifying assumptions e.g., one-dimensional flow, steady-state flow, non-viscous flow, compressible and in-compressible…

## NON FLOW AND FLOW WORK

NON FLOW AND FLOW WORK CLASS NOTES FOR MECHANICAL ENGINEERING NON FLOW WORK (i)                 Work input to a compressor during compression process ( from the start of compression to end of compression) (ii)               Work obtained from a turbine during expansion only (During start of expansion to the end of expansion) Mathematical form of non-flow work…

## REFRIGERANT FLOW CONTROLS

REFRIGERANT FLOW CONTROLS Flow controls are fitted between the condenser and the evaporator. These produce the required pressure drop. These also control the rate of flow of refrigerant as per cooling required. There are five types of refrigerant flow controls. These are used in different applications. FIVE TYPES (i)  Capillary Tube (ii)  Automatic Expansion Valve…
