Question

In both laminar and turbulent flow, is the pressure drop within a pipe with rough surface negligible or large?

Answer #1

*Friction loss is the major loss in flow through pipes is caused due to the viscosity of fluid against the wall of the pipe.

*In laminar flow, pressure loss or head loss are proportional to velocity of the liquid. So, it's considered negligible as pipe surface influences the liquid flow nor the loss due to friction.

*In turbulent flow, pressure loss or head loss are proportional to square of velocity of the liquid.

So, effect of pipe roughness has to be considered and pressure loss is large incase of turbulent flow.

What is the equation for the fanning friction factor (f) in a:
Turbulent flow?
Laminar flow?
Transitional flow?
(In all cases rough and smooth pipe)

Explain how you may determine if flow in a pipe is laminar or
turbulent? Why is the distinction between laminar and turbulent
important in fluid mechanics?

Laminar flow and turbulent flow in fluids is the exact same
thing? Is this true or false. Turbulent flow has a back flow of
liquid right so they cant be the same.

5.1 Compare and contrast the procedures for solving laminar flow
problems and turbulent flow
problems.

Consider a horizontal pipe in which a viscous fluid is moving at
a laminar flow. The pressure drop across a 0.2-cm ID pipe was
measured at 18,000 Pa/m. The fluid has a rho= 1110 kg/m3 and mu=
0.03 kg/m-s. Determine the equation that defines the velocity
profile vz(r).Then, calculate the velocity at the center of the
pipe (vzat r = 0 in m/s).

Turbulent flow separator criterion and value for different

.Pipe flow has surface on which pressure is equal to atmospheric
pressure?
true or false?

.Pipe flow has surface on which pressure is equal to atmospheric
pressure
true or false?

Remember that pressure drop in piping vary as the diameter is
changed, assuming the mass flow rate is the same. you found that
pressure drop is inversely proportional to diameter to the fifth
power. You also know that velocity in the duct/pipe is inversely
proportional to area or diameter squared, again for the same mass
flow rate. Your water flow analysis is based on achieving a water
flow velocity similar to the air velocity (24 ft/s), however the
result for...

A fluid is flowing under laminar conditions in a cylindrical
pipe of 2 cm diameter. The pressure drop is 330 Pa, the viscosity
of the fluid is 5 Pa.s, and the pipe is 300 cm long. Calculate the
mean velocity and velocity of fluid at different radial locations
in the pipe
