Question

3. Water flows through 80 ft of a 4” cast iron pipe. The head loss through the pipe is 0.27 ft. What is the volume flow rate of water through the pipe, in cfs? [Type II]

Answer #1

Due to friction in pipe, a major head loss is seen which is calculated by Darcy-Weisbach equation.

Head loss due to friction=Hf=fLV²/2Dg

where, f is friction factor

L is length of pipe

V is velocity of flow

g is acceleration due to gravity

D is diameter of pipe

where, Q is volume flow rate

A is area of flow

According to the question data,

L=80 ft

D= 0.3333 ft

Hf= 0.27 ft

g= 32.174 ft/s²

f= 0.00085..............{for cast iron pipe}

Q= ?

Solving the above expression, we get

Q= 0.805 ft³/s or. Q= **0.805**
**cfs**

Water at 100oF flows from one tank to another through
two pipes A (D=3") & B (D=6") running in parallel between the
same two tanks through the same drop in elevation (25 ft). The
lengths of the 3” and 6” new, asphalt-dipped cast iron pipe (ϵ =
0.0004 ft) are 100 ft. Use ν=7.4 x 10-6
ft2/s. Determine the flow in cfs . Ignoring
minor losses ...determine QA and
QB.

Water flows at the rate of 500gal/min through a 400-ft-long line.
The first and last 100ft of the line are 6-in.-diameter cast-iron
pipe, while the middle 200 ft consists of two 4.24-in.-diameter
cast-iron pipes.
(a) the average velocity in each section of pipe
(b) the pressure drop in each length of pipe
(c) the total pressure drop

Design a cast iron (kd=8*10‐4 ft) pressurized system (pipe
diameter) that would convey water at 2 ft3/s from two elevated
tanks separated 200 ft long. The difference in water surface
elevation between the tanks is 20 ft and the kinematic viscosity is
1.217*10‐5 ft2/s. Along the system the entrance loss and the exit
loss have a KL of 0.5 and 1, respectively. Two 90 degrees bends are
present (KL=3) and a global valve (KL=10) is also installed along
the system.

Water flow horizontally for 4 m through a 65mm diameter cast
iron pipe at an average velocity of 2 ms-1before an 90 degree elbow
changes the direction of the flow downwards for a further 9 m. A
ball valve is fitted at the end of the 9 m length of pipe.
Determine the pressure at the pipe inlet if the ball valve is fully
opend.(density of water = 998 kgm-3 , u=8.9*10^-4 Pas)

SAE 30 Oil at 60oF flows through a 1.5 m diameter
pipe at a velocity of 2.5 m/s.

determine the friction factor for flow through this
pipe.

Water flows through 80 km of HDPE (High Density Polyethylene)
pipe having an outer diameter of 1600 mm and a wall thickness of 63
mm. If the volumetric flow is 75x106 metercube in a year, determine
the head loss in the pipe due to friction.Take kinematic viscosity
as ν = 1.33 X 10-6 m/s2

Water flows between two reservoirs through 800 ft of 12-inch
diameter welded-steel pipe. The water surface elevation difference
between the two reservoirs is 16 ft. Find the flowrate (a) assuming
head loss is only due to pipe friction, and (b) Accounting for both
friction losses and minor losses due to a flush square-edged pipe
entrance, the pipe exit, and a half-open gate valve in the line.
Assume the water temperature is 60°F

Water (ρ = 999 kg/m3, μ = 1.3x10-3 N/s) from a large tank with
P1 flows through a pipeline at the rate of 0.14 m3/s to atmosphere
as shown. The pipe diameter of the entire piping system is 20 cm

same as the flow velocity in the pipe, no discharging nozzle loss,
Kinlet = 0.5, and Kelbow = 1.1, calculate the absolute P1 (MPa) in
