- Four elements are defined in terms of three variables (thng s)
1

variable: driving force or potential that tends to move or change the quantity variable
3

1. Introduction
- Resistance
an opposition to the movement of flow of material or energy
being measured in terms of the amount of potential required to produce one unit
of electric current, liquid flow rate, gas flow rate, heat flow rate, or velocity
- Capacitance
the amount of material, energy or distance required to make a unit change in potential
being measured in terms of the amount of material, energy, or distance required
to make a unit change in potential
- Inertia/Inertance/Inductance
an opposition to change in the state of motion
being measured in terms of the amount of potential required to increase electric
current, liquid flow rate, gas flow rate, or velocity by one unit per second
the time interval between the time the signal appears at the input of a
component and the time the corresponding response appears at the output
the effect of dead time is to delay the input signal by the dead-time delay

4. Gas Flow Elements
1. Gas flow resistance is that property of pipes, valves or restrictions which impedes
the flow of a gas. It is measured in term of the increase of the pressure required to
produce an increase in gas flow rate of 1 /
- Two types of flow: laminar and turbulent, depending on the Reynolds numbers
= 4/
In laminar flow, the pressure drop varies directly with the gas velocity (linear)
In turbulent flow, the pressure drop varies directly with the square of the gas
velocity (nonlinear)
- In practice, gas flow is almost always turbulent, and the common used equations
apply to turbulent flow
- If the pressure drop less than 10% of the initial gas pressure, the equation for
incompressible flow gives reasonable accuracy for gas flow
