What is Static fluid: Definition and 12 Discussions

Static electricity is an imbalance of electric charges within or on the surface of a material. The charge remains until it is able to move away by means of an electric current or electrical discharge. Static electricity is named in contrast with current electricity, which flows through wires or other conductors and transmits energy.A static electric charge can be created whenever two surfaces contact and have worn and separated, and at least one of the surfaces has a high resistance to electric current (and is therefore an electrical insulator). The effects of static electricity are familiar to most people because people can feel, hear, and even see the spark as the excess charge is neutralized when brought close to a large electrical conductor (for example, a path to ground), or a region with an excess charge of the opposite polarity (positive or negative). The familiar phenomenon of a static shock – more specifically, an electrostatic discharge – is caused by the neutralization of charge.

    Contraction of a static fluid due to cooling

    Hi, I'm trying to model a compensation device in a hydraulic system. Basically, I have a closed pipe that contains a body of liquid (water glycol) and as time elapses this fluid is subject to a cooling effect. This results in contraction and hence a pressure decrease which is subsequently...
