Objective:

• To determine the hydrostatic thrust acting on a plane surface immersed in water when

the surface is partially submerged or fully submerged.

• To determine the position of the line of action of the thrust and to compare the

position determined by experiment with the theoretical position.

Method:

By achieving an equilibrium condition between the moments acting on the balance

arm of the test apparatus. The forces acting are the weight applied to the balance and

the hydrostatic pressure on the end face of the quadrant.

Equipment Required:

• The F1-12 Hydrostatic Pressure Apparatus (including set of weights)

• Source of clean water (typically F1-10 Hydraulics Bench)

• A jug

• Calipers or ruler, for measuring the actual dimensions of the quadrant, if desired

Apparatus Overview:

A fabricated quadrant is mounted on a balance arm which pivots on knife edges. The

knife edges coincide with the centre of arc of the quadrant. Thus, of the hydrostatic

forces acting on the quadrant when immersed in water, only the force on the

rectangular end face gives rise to a moment about the knife edges (forces on the

curved surfaces resolve through the pivot and have. no effect on the moment). This

moment is counteracted by variable weights at a fixed distance from the pivot

allowing the magnitude and position of the hydrostatic force to be determined for

different water depths. The quadrant can be operated with the vertical end face

partially or fully submerged, allowing, the difference in theory to be investigated.

The balance arm incorporates a weight hanger for the weights supplied and an

adjustable counterbalance weight to ensure that the balance arm is horizontal before

immersing the quadrant in water. The assembled balance arm is mounted on top of a

clear acrylic tank which may be leveled by adjusting three screwed feet. Correct

alignment is indicated on a circular spirit level mounted on the base of the tank.

A level indicator attached to the side of the tank shows when the balance arm is

horizontal. Water is admitted to the top of the tank by a flexible tube and may be

drained through a cock in the side of the tank. The water level is indicated on a scale

on the side of the quadrant.

The balance arm incorporates two locating dowels and a clamping screw for securing

the quadrant in the correct position on the arm. The arm pivots on top of the flotation

tank via machined knife edges. The balance arm incorporates a locating groove to

ensure that the weight hanger is correctly positioned relative to the pivot. Rotation of

the counterbalance weight allows it to be moved relative to the pivot, allowing the

assembled balance arm to be leveled before immersing the quadrant in water.

The flotation tank must be levelled before levelling the balance arm by adjusting the

screwed feet. Correct alignment is indicated by a circular spirit level mounted on the

base of the tank. A level indicator mounted on the end of the flotation tank shows

when the balance arm is horizontal.

Water is admitted to the top of the tank by a flexible tube and may be drained through

a lever operated cock at the base. The water supply may be obtained from the

hydraulic bench or from an alternative source as required. Alternatively a suitable jug

may be used to pour water into the tank. In use the immersed depth of the quadrant is

indicated by a scale on the side of the quadrant.

• Technical Data

The following dimensions from the equipment are used in the appropriate

calculations. If required these values may he checked as part of the experimental

procedure and replaced with your own measurements.

Theory:

When the quadrant is immersed in water it is possible to analyze the forces acting on the

surfaces of the quadrant as follows:

The hydrostatic force at any point on the curved surfaces is normal to the surface

and therefore resolves through the pivot point because this is located at the origin of

the radii. Hydrostatic forces on the upper and lower curved surfaces therefore have

no net effect--- no torque to affect the equilibrium of the assembly because all of

these forces pass through the pivot.

The forces on the sides of the quadrant are horizontal and cancel out (equal and

opposite).

The hydrostatic force on the vertical submerged face is counteracted by the balance

weight. The resultant hydrostatic force on the face can therefore be calculated from

the value of the balance weight and the depth of the water as follows:-

When the system is in equilibrium, the moments about the pivot point are equal:

mgL = Fh

where:

m is the mass on the weight hanger.

g is the acceleration due to gravity,

L is the length of the balance arm,

F is the hydrostatic thrust, and

h is the distance between the pivot and the centre of pressure.

Hence by calculating the hydrostatic thrust and centre of pressure on the end face of the quadrant,

we can compare theoretical and experimental results.

For the case where the vertical face of the quadrant is partially submerged:

Where:

L is the horizontal distance between the pivot point and the weight hanger, H is the

vertical distance between the pivot and the base of the quadrant,

D is the height of the quadrant face,

B is the width of the quadrant face,

d is the depth of water from the base of the quadrant

h is the vertical distance between the surface and the centre of pressure.

The forces shown are F, the hydrostatic thrust, and m.g, the weight.

• Hydrostatic Thrust:

The hydrostatic thrust can be defined as:

F = pgAh (Newtons)

where:

A is the area = A = Bd

h is the mean depth of immersion = h = d/2

Therefore:

….…………… (1)

M = Fh (Newtons)

A balancing moment is produced by the weight, W, applied to the hanger at the end of the

balance arm. The moment is proportional to the length of the balance arm, L.

Fh = WL = mgL

The theoretical result for depth of pressure P below the free surface is

where Ix is the 2nd moment of area of immersed section about an axis in the free - surface.

By use of the parallel axes theorem:

The depth of the centre of pressure below the pivot point is therefore given by:

Hence:

For the case where the vertical face of the quadrant is fully submerged:

F is the hydrostatic thrust exerted on the quadrant,

h' is the depth of the centre of pressure,

h" is the distance of centre of pressure below the pivot,

B is the width of the surface, and

D is the depth of the surface

W is the weight on the hanger (=mg)

• Hydrostatic Thrust

The hydrostatic thrust F can be defined as

• Experimental Depth of Pressure

The moment, M can be defined as:

M = Fh" (Nm)

A balancing moment is produced by the weight, W, applied to the hanger at the end of the

balance arm. The moment is proportional to the length of the balance arm, L.

Fh” = WL = mgL

The theoretical result for depth of centre of pressure below the free-surface is

Where:

Ix, is the 2nd moment of area of immersed section about an axis in the free-surface.

Equipment Set Up:

For improved accuracy of results, measure the dimensions B, D of the quadrant end-face and

the distance H and L and record the values for future reference.

Position the empty F1-12 flotation tank on the Fl-10 Hydraulics Bench or other suitable level

surface, then adjust the screwed feet until the built-in circular spirit level indicates that the

tank is level in both planes.

Position the balance arm on the knife edges and check that the arm is free to swing.

Locate the empty weight hanger in the groove at the end of the balance arm.

Move the counter-balance weight until the balance arm is horizontal, indicated by the central

index mark on the beam level indicator.

Procedure:

Add a small mass (typically 50g) to the hanger.

Close the dram valve at the end of the tank then slowly add water to the tank. This can be

done in one of two ways:

Water can be poured into the tank from a suitable receptacle such as a jug or water may be

pumped into the flotation tank from the F1-10 Hydraulics Bench using a flexible tube

attached to the quick release outlet fitting in the bed of the channel.

Fill the flotation tank with water initially until the balance arm rises. Avoid wetting the

balance arm or the quadrant above the water level in the tank.

After initially filling the tank, small adjustments of water level are best performed using a

jug, allowing time for the water to settle before taking readings.

Alternatively, set a beaker, measuring cylinder or similar container full of water beside the

tank. Fill the flexible tube with water, and hold the ends sealed (a thumb over each end is

suitable). Place one end below the water surface in the cylinder and the other end into the

tank via the triangular cut-out at the pivot end. This will set up a siphon system. Water can be

added to the tank by pouring it into the vessel using the jug, then allowing time for the water

levels to balance. Siphoning allows greater control over the water entering the tank, and

produces less disturbance of the water within the tank.

Add water until the hydrostatic thrust on the end-face of the quadrant causes the balance arm

to rise. Ensure that there is no water spilled on the upper surfaces of the quadrant or the sides,

above the water level. Continue to add water until the balance arm is horizontal, checking this

by aligning the flat of the balance arm with the central mark on the level indicator. You may

find it easier to slightly over-fill the tank, and obtain the equilibrium position by opening the

drain cock to allow a small outflow.

When the arm is horizontal read the depth of immersion from the scale on the face of the

quadrant. Care should be taken to ignore the meniscus by moving the head up and down until

the eye is sighing along the true surface of the water.

Repeat the above procedure for different load increments by adding further weights to the

weight hanger. The weights supplied allow increments of ten, twenty, and fifty grams to be

used, depending on the number of samples required. Fifty-gram intervals are suggested for an

initial set of results, which will give a total of nineteen samples.

Continue until the water level reaches the top of the upper scale on the quadrant face.

Repeat the procedure in reverse, by progressively removing the weights.

Note any factors that you think are likely to affect the accuracy of your results.
