11 Flow Through an Annulus Liquid is flowing upward through an annulus (space between two concentric cylinders)Important quantities:R : radius of outer cylinderκR : radius of inner cylinder
12 Flow Through an Annulus Assumptions:Steady-state flowIncompressible fluidOnly Vz component is significantAt the solid-liquid interface, no-slip conditionSignificant gravity effectsVmax is attained at a distance λR from the center of the inner cylinder (not necessarily the center)
22 Shell BalancesIdentify all the forces that influence the flow (pressure, gravity, momentum flux) and their directions. Set the positive directions of your axes.Create a shell with a differential thickness across the direction of the flux that will represent the flow system.Identify the areas (cross-sectional and surface areas) and volumes for which the flow occurs.Formulate the shell balance equation and the corresponding differential equation for the momentum flux.
23 Shell BalancesIdentify all boundary conditions (solid-liquid, liquid-liquid, liquid-free surface, momentum flux values at boundaries, symmetry for zero flux).Integrate the DE for your momentum flux and determine the values of the constants using the BCs.Insert Newton’s law (momentum flux definition) to get the differential equation for velocity.Integrate the DE for velocity and determine values of constants using the BCs.Characterize the flow using this velocity profile.
24 Shell Balances Important Assumptions* The flow is always assumed to be at steady-state.Neglect entrance and exit effects. The flow is always assumed to be fully-developed.The fluid is always assumed to be incompressible.Consider the flow to be unidirectional.*unless otherwise stated

35 Friction FactorDefinition: Drag force per wetted surface unit area (or shear stress at the surface) divided by the product of density times velocity head
36 Friction FactorFrictional force/loss head is proportional to the velocity head of the flow and to the ratio of the length to the diameter of the flow stream

39 Friction Factor for Turbulent Flow Friction factor is dependent on NRe and the relative roughness of the pipe.The value of fF is determined empirically.
40 Friction Factor for Turbulent Flow How to compute/find the value of the friction factor for turbulent flow:Use Moody diagrams.- Friction factor vs. Reynolds number with a series of parametric curves related to the relative roughnessUse correlations that involve the friction factor f.- Blasius equation, Colebrook formula, Churchill equation (Perry 8th Edition)
41 Moody Diagrams Important notes: Both fF and NRe are plotted in logarithmic scales. Some Moody diagrams show fD (Darcy friction factor). Make the necessary conversions.No curves are shown for the transition region.Lowest possible friction factor for a given NRe in turbulent flow is shown by the smooth pipe line.
