Pre-measurement class I. Department of Fluid Mechanics Csaba Horváth Budapesti University of Technology and Economics
General information Department webpage: Student information page: (materials, test scores, etc.) Schedule: 2 pre-measurement classes + 3 measurements (A,B and C) + 2 presentations 1. For the first presentation, the A and half of the B measurement leaders will make presentations 2. For the second presentation, the second half of the B and all of the C measurement leaders will make presentations The measurement reports are due within one week of the measurement date, on Friday at noon. The submitting student must send an to the faculty member checking the report, to notify them that they have submitted the report. The faculty member will correct the report within 3 days and send a message to the student, through the Poseidon network, to let them know if the report has been accepted, corrections need to be made or if the measurement needs to be repeated. If corrections need to be made, the students can consult the faculty member. The corrected reports need to turned in within 2 weeks from the measurement, at noon. An must once again be sent to the faculty member correcting the report.
Measuring pressure U tube manometer Betz manometer Inclined micro manometer Bent tube micro manometer EMB-001 digital handheld manometer
Measuring pressure / U tube manometer I. Pipe flow Butterfly valve Average the pressure on pressure taps around the perimeter H > g pBpB pJpJ The manometers balance equation: ny << m (For example> measuring air with water) Or (Measuring water with mercury) Notice that
Measuring pressure / U tube manometer II. Density of the measuring fluid mf (approximately) The manometers balance equation: Density of the measured fluid: ny (For example air) p levegő = p air -atmospheric pressure [Pa] ~10 5 Pa R - specific gas constant for air 287[J/kg/K] T - atmospheric temperature [K] ~293K=20°C mercury water alcohol
Measuring pressure / U tube manometer III. Example: the reading: The exactness ~1mm: The absolute error: How to write the correct value with the absolute error(!) The relative error: Disadvantages: Reading error (take every measurement twice) Exactness~1mm With a small pressure difference, the relative error is large Advantages: Reliable Does not require servicing
Measuring pressure / upside down U tube micro manometer The manometer’s balance equation Since the upside down U tube manometer is mostly used for liquid measured fluids, the measurement fluid is usually air. The density of air is13.6 times smaller than mercury and therefore the results are much more exact.
Measuring pressure / Betz micro manometer The relative error is reduced using optical tools. Exactness ~0,1mm: The absolute error is: The relative error:
Measuring pressure / inclined micro manometer It is characterized by a changing relative error. The manometers balance equation Exactness ~1mm, The relative error:
Measuring pressure / bent tube micro manometer Is characterized by a constant relative error and not a linearly scaled relative error.

Measuring volume flow rate Definition of volume flow rate Measurement method based on velocity measurements in multiple points Non-circular cross-sections Circular cross-sections 10 point method 6 point method Pipe flow meters based on flow contraction Venturi flow meter Through flow orifice Inlet orifice Inlet bell mouth
Measurement method based on velocity measurements in multiple points Very important: the square root of the averages ≠ the average of the square roots(!) Example: Measuring the dynamic pressure in multiple points and calculating the velocity from it
Volume flow rate / based on velocity measurements I. Non-circular cross-sections Assumptions:
Volume flow rate / based on velocity measurements II. S i /D= 0.026, 0.082, 0.146, 0.226, 0.342, 0.658, 0.774, 0.854, 0.918, The velocity profile is assumed to be a 2 nd order parabola Steady flow conditions Prandtl tube measurements of the dynamic pressure are used Circular cross-sections, 10 point (6 point) method
Volume flow rate / based on velocity measurements III. S i /D= 0.026, 0.082, 0.146, 0.226, 0.342, 0.658, 0.774, 0.854, 0.918, The advantage of this method as compared to methods based on flow contraction is that the flow is not disturbed as much and is easy to do. The disadvantage is that the error can be much larger with this method. For long measurements it is also hard to keep the flow conditions constant. (10 points x 1.5 minutes = 15 minutes) Circular cross-sections, 10 point (6 point) method Assumptions:
Volume flow rate / flow contraction methods Standard orifice size- pressure difference = d/D Cross-section ratio d [m] Diameter of the smallest cross/section D [m] Diameter of the pipe upstream of the orifice Re D = Dv/ Reynolds number’s basic equation (characteristic size x velocity)/ kinematic viscosity v [m/s] The average velocity in the pipe of diameter D [m 2 /s] kinematic viscosity p 1 [Pa] The pressure measured upstream of the orifice p 2 [Pa] The pressure measured in the orifice or downstream of it Expansion number ( ( )~1 For air the change in pressure is small) Contraction ratio, =( ,Re) (When using the standard it is 0.6) Heat capacity ratio or Isentropic expansion factor =p 2 /p 1 Pressure ratio Through flow orifice
Volume flow rate / flow contraction methods Not a standard contraction – pressure difference Inlet orifice (not standard)
