Question

The wall shear stress in a fully developed flow portion of a 18-in.-diameter pipe carrying water is 1.65 lb/ft2. Determine the pressure gradient, ∂p/∂x, where x is in the flow direction, if the pipe is (a) horizontal, (b) vertical with flow up, or (c) vertical with flow down.

Answer #1

Answers

a. -4.4 lb/ft3

b. -66.80 lb/ft3

c. 58 lb/ft3

Consider the fully developed flow of glycerin at 40C Trough a
70m long, 4 cm diameter, horizontal, circular pipe. if the flow
velocity at the centerline is measured to be 6 m/s, determinate the
velocity profile and the pressure difference across this 70m long
section of the pipe, and the useful pumping power required to
maintain this flow.

Using Bernoulli Equation :
1) A water pump forces water up a vertical pipe with diameter 12
cm at a flow rate of 300 L/s. The pressure at the pump is 2.8 x 106
N/m2 . Two meters above the pump, the pipe reduces to a diameter of
8 cm. What is the pressure at that point?

Inside the wall of a house, an L-shaped section of hot-water pipe
consists of three parts: a straight, horizontal piece h =
28.0 cm long, an elbow, and a straight vertical piece ℓ = 156 cm
long (figure below). A stud and a second-story floorboard hold the
ends of this section of copper pipe stationary. Find the
magnitude and direction of the displacement of the
pipe elbow when the water flow is turned on, raising the
temperature of the pipe...

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)
I just calculated the friction losses before...
