Experiment 1

Fluid Flow In A Smooth Pipe

Abstract

In this experiment, three variable flow meters are used to alter the flowrate. Changes in pressure drop due to the change in flowrate are then observed from the three pressure gauges that can measure pressure at different range and recorded. The shift from laminar flow to turbulent flow is seen from the results recorded, but it is observed more clearly from the water-soluble dye experiment that was carried out by the demonstrator. Laminar flow turns to be turbulent when the Reynolds Number goes above a certain value, around 2000.

Aims

To look at how the pressure drop changes when the average velocity is altered in a circular pipe and to plot a graph of Friction Factor versus Reynolds*…show more content…*

Using the definition gz1+V122+P1ρ=gz2+V222+P2ρ , the condition z1≠z2 is true if the two pressure taps are not horizontal (at different height).

While the condition V1≠V2 is true if the cross sectional area of the pipe is not the same from the first pressure tap to the second pressure tap.

Considering a viscous liquid that is being pumped through a smooth pipe with the parameters: ρ=1460 kg/m3 μ=5.2×10-1Ns/m2 D=0.1 m Q=5×10-2 m3/s

To determine the velocity,

V=QA

V=5×10-2π0.124 m/s

V=6.37 m/s

Then find the Reynolds Number,

Re=ρVDμ

Re=14606.370.15.2×10-1

Re=1788.5

According to Figure 2, the Fanning friction factor is 0.007.

The Bernoulli equation:

∆Pρ+g∆z+∆12V2+2fLV2D+Ws=0

Horizontal pipe, so ∆z=0

Constant pipe cross sectional area, so ∆12V2=0

Also, work done by pump, WP=-Ws

So the Bernoulli equation is reduced to

∆Pρ+2fLV2D-WP=0

WP=∆P1460+20.007L6.3720.1

An indication of energy loss is in the form of a head loss or pressure drop. The task at hand will be to investigate the variation of head loss at different velocities through a 17.2mm diameter and 4.5mm diameter pipe. The results will then be used to derive the Reynolds numbers for each velocity and then compared the variation of friction factor. From the results

## The Fluid And The Force Acting On The Flat Plate Were Measured

2411 Words | 10 Pagesflowrate of a fluid can be defined by measuring the pressure drop across pipes and fittings while the fluid passing through them. In this laboratory experiment, the flowrate of the fluid and the force acting on the flat plate were measured. While comparing the experimental values for pressure drop with theoretical ones, it became clear that in most cases, experimental values exceed theoretical ones. The reasons of deviations from ideal theoretical values are roughness of the pipes which was not taken

## Head Loss Of A Pipe Flow

1705 Words | 7 PagesIntroduction Head loss in a pipe flow is mainly due to friction in pipes and again friction is due to the roughness of pipes. It has been proved that friction is dependent not only upon the size and shape of the projection of roughness, but also upon their distribution of spacing. Theory If the head loss is a given length of uniform pipe is measured at different at different values of the velocity, it will be found that, as long as the velocity is low enough to secure laminar flow, the head loss, due to

## The Combined Effect of Corrision and Erosion

2156 Words | 9 Pages1. Introduction Erosion corrosion is the combined effect of corrosion and erosion, which is caused when a rapid turbulent fluid passes through the metal surface [1], which are already corroded by pits. The pits are formed because of the breakage of the oxide layer of the metal. A combination of erosion and corrosion can lead to very high pitting rates. The joint action of the erosion and corrosion is known as erosion-corrosion, which is encountered prominently in chemical processing industries like
