2 For next time: –Read: § 8-14 to 8-18 –HW 13 due Monday, December 1, 2003 Outline: –Bernoulli equation in pipe flow –Accounting for pumps and turbines –Accounting for friction in pipes Important points: –Don’t forget the conservation of mass equation –Be careful how you account for pump and turbine losses –Understand the Moody Diagram

3 Fluid Mechanics A venturi tube or meter--converging- diverging nozzle frequently used to measure the volumetric flowrate of a fluid. It must be inserted into a pipe or duct as a part of the pipe or duct. 1 2

4 TEAMPLAY For a venturi such as that shown before, the following data apply: dia 1 = 6.0 in, dia 2 = 4.0 in. The pressure difference P 1 – P 2 = 3 psi. Water with a density of 62.4 lbm/ft 3 is flowing. Find the rate of flow in ft 3 /min. Hint: use flowrate Q v = A 1 V 1 = A 2 V 2

5 Pipe flow We previously had the Bernoulli equation in this form and we observed that the terms are energy per unit mass. In a pipe (or duct), this equation represents the mechanical energy per unit mass at a flow cross section.

6 Pipe flow For frictionless flow, the mechanical energy will be the same at every cross section of the pipe and

7 Pipe flow Cross section 1 Cross section 2

8 Pipe flow In real pipe or duct flows, energy must be used to overcome friction, and so at subsequent cross sections the energy is less. Pipe flow--examples are water systems and petroleum pipeline systems. Duct flow--examples are air conditioning ducts in buildings.

9 Pipe and duct flow We had the following equation for incompressible steady flow: or, replacing v by  and rearranging

10 Pipe and duct flow The term represents the increase in internal energy that occurs due to friction as the fluid flows in a pipe or duct. The textbook calls this a mechanical loss term, e mech, loss. The text also splits the work term into two: w pump represents pumping power input or the power required by a pump or fan to move the flow. W turbine represents the work done by a water turbine, for example.

11 Pipe and duct flow Thus the book arrives at the following equation for adiabatic flow: or

12 Pipe and duct flow The previous equation is equation 11-31 in the text book, where the equation (incorrectly) appears thusly

13 Pipe and duct flow The shaft work includes the work to increase the mechanical energy of the fluid and to overcome losses. Eq 11-31 and 11-32 should read: where if we forget the w turbine for the moment, w pump,u raises the mechanical energy of the flow.

14 Pipe and duct flow Divide the previous equation by g to get an equation in terms of head:

15 Pipe and duct flow The term (e/g) mech,loss is identified as the head loss term, and we calculate it later.

16 Pipe and duct flow Not all of the shaft power going into the pump is converted into useful mechanical energy supplied to the fluid, such as raising water up into a water tower. Some is lost in frictional heating that manifests itself as a slight temperature rise of the fluid. Thus w pump,shaft = w pump,u +e mech,losses

17 Pipe and duct flow This loss gives rise to the following pump efficiency

18 TEAMPLAY Consider a water pump in a horizontal, constant area pipe. The mass flow rate is 50 kg/s, and the pump receives 17.0 kW of power from its driver. The delta P (pressure change) across the pump is 250 kPa. Determine the mechanical efficiency of the pump and the temperature rise of the fluid.

19 Pipe and duct flow Using the equation in terms of head loss and omitting the work terms (meaning we do not have a pump, turbine or compressor in the system), Where the previous equation in terms of flow energy per unit mass has been divided by g (not g c ) to yield units of head (length).

20 Pipe and duct flow It can be shown that the the head loss term can be determined in terms of the shear stress at the wall,  o. Where is the length of the pipe and D is the diameter of the pipe.

21 Pipe and duct flow The shear stress at the wall is a function of five independent variables.  o =  o (,,V,D,e)  is the dynamic or absolute viscosity V is the mean velocity of the flow e (or ) is the surface roughness of the pipe, and can be described as a length.

22 Pipe and duct flow With five independent variables, the solution is very complex. However, the complexity is reduced to two variables by use of only two non- dimensional variables.

23 Pipe and duct flow The non-dimensional shear stress can be expressed as

24 Pipe and duct flow = Re, the Reynolds number (non- dimensional) e/D = relative roughness = ratio of inertia forces/viscous forces

25 Pipe and duct flow The non-dimensional shear stress is tabulated as a function of the Reynolds number and the surface roughness. The non-dimensional shear stress is called a friction factor.

26 Pipe and duct flow Fanning friction factor, , used in heat transfer: Moody friction factor, f, used in fluid mechanics:

27 Pipe and duct flow Moody friction factor, f, used in fluid mechanics is typically given as and appears on page 974 of the textbook.

31 TEAMPLAY Determine the pressure drop over 1000 ft of pipe carrying water if the flowrate is 70 cfs and the pipe diameter is 30 inches. Assume that the pipe has a roughness, e, of 0.1 inches and the temperature is 25 C. Water has a density of 62.4 lb m /cubic foot.

32 TEAMPLAY A 2 ft diameter cylindrical aire conditioning duct hands horizontally from a ceiling and carries 10,000 CFM of 55 F air. Relative roughness factor e/D = 0.0002. Find the pressure drop der 100 ft of duct length in the units of inches of water if 27.7 in of water is 1 psia. 1.Write and simplify the basic equation. 2.Find the density, velocity of flow, Reynold’s number and friction factor. 3.Solve the problem.
