Question

A pump is used to deliver water from a large reservoir to another large reservoir that is 20 m higher.

The inlet of the pipe is submerged in the one reservoir and the exit is just above the surface of the other reservoir. If the friction head loss in the 200-mm-diameter, 4-km-long pipeline is 2.5 m for every 500 m of pipe length, determine the required power output of the pump so the flow is 0.6 m3/s.

Answer #1

A pump delivers water (r= 1000 kg/m3, µ= 0.860x10-3 kg/m·s) from
one reservoir to another reservoir through 120 m of 0.05 m diameter
pipe. Volumetric flow rate in the pipe line is measured with
venturi meter. Throat diameter of venturi meter is 38 mm and
pressure drop in the venturi meter is 156.9 kPa.The surface of the
pipe is rough e/D=0.0001. Calculate the power of the pump required
for the water–transfer. See the figure below for several pipe–
fittings installed...

Water flows at a
velocity of 4.2 m/s from one reservoir (z = 41.5 m) to another
reservoir (z = 8.0 m) over a 1011-m long, 300-mm diameter pipeline.
If the total head loss is 19 times the velocity head, determine the
power (in N-m/s) extracted by a turbine (z = 8.0 m) located between
the reservoirs. Assume γ = 9790 N/m3.

a. 4.772e4
b. 8.555e4
c. 6.075e4
d. 8.224e4

A pump is used to carry water (T =60 oF and ν = 1.217×10-5
ft2/s) from a large tank (elevation of surface = 30 ft and at
atmospheric pressure) through a pipe to the exit (elevation 60 ft)
at a rate Q = 1.5 cfs as shown below. The pipe is made of cast iron
(ε = 0.00085 ft). The pipe segment before the pump has length L =
500 ft (three horizontal sections of 160 ft each and two...

An industrial pump is to be used to supply water from Lake Bonno
to an agricultural field located 500 m away from the lake, and at
an elevation of 20 m above the surface of the lake. If the
horse-power of the pump is 45-hp, what is the discharge that can be
delivered by using a pipe of diameter D = 0.4 m and a friction
coefficient of f = 0.015? Neglect all minor losses. Is the flow
laminar or...

The characteristics of a centrifugal pump that is used to pump
water (998 kgm-3 , 1.14×10-3 Nsm-2 ) from one reservoir to another
are given in the table below. The difference between the water
levels is 3 m. A 840 m long, 0.15 m diameter pipe with absolute
roughness of 6×10-6 m joins the two reservoir.
Determine the (a) best efficiency point, (b) operating point,
(c) operating efficiency and the (d) power adsorbed when the
average velocity in the pipe...

A high-head hydroelectric scheme consists of a reservoir from
which the water is delivered to four Pelton turbines through a low
pressure tunnel LT = 10 km long, 4 m in diameter, lined with
concrete. The tunnel splits into four steel pipelines (penstocks)
500 m long, 2 m in diameter each terminating in a single nozzle,
the area of which is varied by a spear valve. The maximum diameter
of each nozzle is 0.9 m. The difference in level between...

A house is situated 20 m above the datum. It has to be
supplied water from nearby
reservoir. The pipe length from the reservoir to the house is 200
m, diameter is 30 cm,
flow has to be 0.2 m3/s. Friction loss allowed is 5+Z m and the
pressure to be maintained
in the pipe in the house is 20 kN/m2. Also consider minor losses
(entrance and outlet).
Calculate the height the reservoir has to be situated above the
datum?...

1. A centrifugal pump
running at 2950 rpm under test at peak efficiency gave the
following results: Effective head H= 75m of water, rate of flow Q=
0.05 m3/s, overall efficiency h= 76%.
A dynamically similar pump is to operate at a corresponding
point of its characteristic when delivering 0.5 m3/s
through a pipe 800m long and 1m diameter for which the friction
coefficient f =0.05. The pipe discharges 90m above reservoir level.
Determine the rotational speed at which the...

. A galvanized iron service pipe ( ϵ = 0.15 mm) is required to
deliver a flow rate of 0.5 m3/s. If the length of the pipe is 200 m
and the head loss is not to exceed 50 m, calculate the minimum pipe
diameter that can be used by trial and error. Assume an initial
value of 0.025 for f. Please show all work
