2 LINEAR MOMENTUM EQUATION - APPLICATION TO PRESSURE (PIPE) FLOW Chapter 6 (p. 190) of Text
3 Linear momentum equation Total force acting on fluid in x-direction equals rate of change of momentum in x- direction (6.6)
4 What is F tot ? Total Force represents all forces acting on the fluid mass in the control volume, including gravity forces, shear forces, and pressure forces
5 Linear momentum equation Basic approach Apply a control volume such that all inlets and outlets cross the control volume perpendicularly Use continuity and Bernoulli and Continuity to calculate unknown pressures/velocities Apply the linear momentum equation allowing for all forces acting on the fluid Allows calculation of unknown force exerted on the fluid within the control volume (from this, calculate reaction force).

7 Linear momentum equation Flow through a pipe bend
8 Example 1 A liquid of relative density 0.75 flows at a rate of 7.5 kg/s through a pipe that contains a 90 bend in the horizontal plane. Fluid enters at a pressure of 25 kPa. The bend has a centerline radius of 200 mm and a constant circular cross-section of diameter 60 mm. The loss in head through the bend due to friction is 0.1 times the inlet velocity head. Calculate: a) the mean velocity of the flow; b) the pressure at exit from the bend; c) the resultant force exerted by the fluid on the bend and its direction. Why would the resultant force differ if the bend were located in the vertical plane? Describe how you would take account of this when calculating the resultant force exerted by the fluid on the bend.
