Introduction

The converging-diverging nozzle test apparatus (Figure 1.1) is used to show the

validity of the Bernoulli Equation. It is also used to show the validity of the continuity

equation where the fluid flow is relatively incompressible. The data taken will also show

the presence of fluid energy losses, often attributed to friction and the turbulence and

eddy currents associated with a separation of flow from the conduit walls.

5. Position the test section in the converging or diverging direction and record.

6. Open the air bleed valve at the top of the manometers.

7. Turn on the pump and adjust the globe valve to achieve a flow rate that results in all

manometers being in a readable range.

8. Close the air bleed valve at the top of the manometers.

9. Repeat steps 6 to 8 until all manometers are in a readable range.

10. Drop the stop plug into the basin.

11. Record the time for a specific amount of water to accumulate in the basin.

12. Open the stop plug in the basin and let the water drain out.

13. Repeat steps 10 to 12 and additional 3 times, resulting in 4 sets of flow rate data.

14. Move the dynamic pressure probe in line with the first static pressure port.

15. Record the manometer data for the dynamic pressure probe and static pressure port.

16. Move the dynamic pressure probe in line with the next static pressure port.

Theoretical Calculations

The first and most crucial calculation is determining the incline of the apparatus.

This incline not only effects the elevation of fluid flow, but it also tilts the array of

manometers, making a correction calculation necessary to achieve accurate readings for

all pressure head data taken. The three measurements taken were the height of the

platform at both ends (Hi1 and Hi2) and the distance between the two height

measurements (Li). Using the following equations, the incline angle (β) was determined

in degrees and then converted to radians for ease of use.

Equation (1.00)

Hi1 = 3.8 cm

Hi2 = 9.0 cm

Li = 36.5 cm

Figure 1.04 – Angle of incline diagram

**The full expression for the Energy Grade Line, or Total Head, is shown below in
**

the familiar form of the Bernoulli Equation. For each location in the closed conduit, the

summation of the three terms will equal the total head.

Equation (1.01)

Neglecting friction losses, the total head will not change in the conduit, this is the basic

conclusion of the Bernoulli Equation.

Equation (1.02)

**The first term, or Static Pressure Head at port x, can be read directly on the array of
**

manometers for any port location: a, b, c, d, e, f.

Equation (1.03)

**The first two terms, or Static and Dynamic Pressure Head, can be read on the manometer
**

furthest to the right. This reading will be taken from whatever location the dynamic

6

pressure probe is located at. For this experiment, the probe is moved inline with one of

the static pressure ports and the reading is taken.

Equation (1.04)

**In order to determine the experimental dynamic pressure head, Equation 1.03 is
**

subtracted from Equation 1.04.

Equation (1.04)

**The above Equation 1.04 is also the governing equation for determining the dynamic
**

pressure head using a pitot tube, also known as a pitot probe. For determining the

theoretical dynamic pressure head, we use the continuity theorem and the assumption of

incompressible flow to arrive at the following equations for dynamic pressure head.

Equation (1.05)

Equation (1.06)

**Due to the incline of the conduit, the elevation head (z) cannot be neglected. In
**

this case, the difference in elevation is the important figure and the first port is taken as

the datum where z = 0. The remaining five static pressure port locations are all at a

higher elevation than the first port, resulting in the negative sign in the equation. The

difference in elevation can be determined by using the appropriate trigonometric relation

and the angle of incline (β), where lx is the distance between the port and the datum.

Equation (1.07)

For the converging nozzle, the first port is “a” and the remaining ports listed in order are

“b, c, d, e, f”. For the diverging nozzle, the first port is “f” and the remaining ports listed

in order are “e, d, c, b, a”.

**Combining the previous equations, we now have a Total Head that can be
**

calculated from the experimental dynamic pressure head and the theoretical dynamic

pressure head.

Equation (1.08)

Equation (1.09)

7

It is important to note that the difference here in “Experimental” and “Theoretical” only

refers to the derivation of the dynamic pressure head. In the results section, the

experimental dynamic pressure head and the theoretical dynamic pressure head will also

be compared to test the validity of the assumption of incompressibility. Also in the

results section we will be able to qualitatively and quantitatively show the losses in the

total head, due to friction and other minor losses. The modified Bernoulli Equation for

these losses between points 1 and 2 is shown below.

Equation (1.10)

Equation (1.11)

**In addition to using trigonometry to determine the change in elevation head, it
**

must also be used to properly adjust the manometer readings (Figure 1.05). This is

because the manometer array is attached to the same platform as the conduit, and it has

been tilted at the same angle (β). The horizontal position of the manometers for ports “a,

b, c, d, e, f”, and the dynamic probe are not switched when the nozzle is changed from

converging to diverging. The manometer readings are relative to each other, due to this,

the x-y datum, will be the zero of the first manometer (port “a”).

Figure 1.05 – Trigonometric adjustments necessary to determine actual manometer height

8

For port “a”, a single adjustment is all that is necessary.

Equation (1.12)

Equation (1.13)

**For the other ports, the zero of the manometer is not at the datum, so a modified version
**

of Equation 1.12 must be used to before the same Equation 1.13 is used to determine the

actual height of the manometer fluid. For a generic port “x”, the following equations

apply where lm is the distance between centerlines of the manometer “x” and the

manometer “a”.

Equation (1.14)

Equation (1.15)

**Due to equal spacing, lm can be expressed in the following equation, where “x -1” is the
**

manometer spaces between the manometer “x” and the datum manometer of port a.

Equation (1.16)

**Furthermore, the static + dynamic pressure head manometer is always the furthest from
**

the datum manometer of port “a”, giving the following equation.

Equation (1.17)

**Using this system of equations, the manometer readings taken during the experiment can
**

be converted into the actual fluid heights that they represent.

**Due to the flexible nature of the dynamic probe, in some place it was pushed to
**

the edge of the conduit, giving falsely low data. For both converging and diverging

configurations, test point 1 is inaccurate due to this issue. For diverging configuration

14

only, test point 5 is inaccurate due to this issue. For analyzing the fluid flow, the other

data points will be considered.

**All three of the converging nozzle tests show good correlation between the
**

Experimental Total Head and the Theoretical Total Head. The overall generally flat

slope of the data points in the converging section shows a low frictional head loss there.

While there are not multiple data points in the diverging section for this configuration, it

still can be seen that most of the head loss is in the diverging section. Specifically, most

of the losses are between ports “e” and “f” (ordered 5 and 6), which shows that the larger

loss is experienced in the expansion portion of the conduit.

**The two diverging nozzle tests do not show as good a correlation between the
**

Experimental Total Head and the Theoretical Total Head. The Experimental Total Head,

which is taken from the moving pressure probe, is similar to data taken in the converging

nozzle tests. It is the data from the static pressure ports, which result in the Theoretical

Total Head, which are too low. It is concluded that during the expansion, there is

separation of flow causing a reduction in flow cross sectional area and an increase in

velocity and dynamic head. This increase in dynamic head explains why the theoretical

dynamic head is less, resulting in a lower Theoretical Total Head than the Experimental

Total Head.

**In the converging configuration, while the expansion is steeper, the diverging
**

configuration shows that even when the expansion is more gradual than the contraction,

the expansion causes most of the losses in the conduit. This is shown directly in the

diverging configuration charts that plot the total head vs. x-distance in mm.
