Fully developed, laminar flow of a viscous fluid (µ = 2.17 N·s/m2) flows between horizontal parallel plates 1-m long that are spaced 3.0-mm apart. The pressure drop is 1.25 kPa. Determine the volumetric flow rate (per unit width) through the channel (in m3/s m).

Approach:
Pressure drop can be calculated for this non-circular duct with the combination of Eq. 9-31 and Eq. 9-32 and using the hydraulic diameter. The velocity is unknown; once it is determined the volume flow rate can be calculated. We need to evaluate the friction factor. We combine all the expressions and solve for velocity.

Assumptions:
1. The system is steady.

Solution:
A HW or per unit width V W = V . Pressure drop can be calculated using the H Volume flow rate is V = V x = V hydraulic diameter: ∆P L V2 = hL = f ρg Dh 2 g

For fully develop laminar flow between infinite parallel plates, f = 96 Re = 96 µ ρ V h .

Journal bearings are constructed with concentric cylinders with a very small gap between the two cylinders; the gap is filled with oil. Because of the very small gap, the flow in the gap is laminar. Consider a sealed journal bearing with inner and outer diameters of 50- and 51-mm, respectively, and a length of 75 mm. The shaft (inner cylinder) rotates at 3000 RPM. At start-up the torque needed to turn the shaft is 0.25 N-m. Determine the viscosity of the oil (in N·s/m2). After an hour of operation will the torque have increased or decreased? Explain.

Approach:
Because the gap is small compared to the diameter, we can analyze the flow as if it were between infinite parallel plates. Viscosity is defined with Newton’s law of viscosity, Eq. 9-2.

Assumptions:
1. The system is steady. 2. The flow is fully developed between infinite parallel plates. 3. Properties are constant.

Solution:
Shear stress at a solid wall, using Newton’s law of viscosity, is: dV τ =µ dy Because we can analyze this flow as between infinite parallel plates, we know that with the inner shaft rotating and the outer shaft stationary, the velocity profile is linear, so the velocity gradient is; τ ( r2 − r1 ) V τ =µ µ= → r2 − r1 V Velocity is V = r1ω . Torque is ℑ = Fr1 = τ Ar1 . Substituting these expressions into the shear stress equation and solving for visocity: ℑ ( r2 − r1 ) ℑ ( r2 − r1 ) ℑ ( r2 − r1 ) µ= = = 2 2 Ar1 ω ( 2π r1 L ) r1 ω 2π Lr13ω

Answer

Comments:
After an hour of operation, torque will decrease. Assuming that the bearing has little heat loss, the viscous friction will raise the oil temperature. Because viscosity for a liquid decreases with increasing temperature, torque will decrease with time.

Consider laminar water flow at 20 °C between two very large horizontal plates. The lower plate is stationary and the upper plate moves to the right at a velocity of 0.25 m/s. For a plate spacing of 2 mm, determine the pressure gradient and its direction required to produce zero net flow at a cross section.

Approach:
Because the plates are very large, we assume the flow is fully developed between infinite parallel plates. For this flow, we can perform an analysis similar to what was done in Section 9.3 for flow in a circular tube to find the relationship between flow and pressure gradient.

Assumptions:
1. 2. 3. The system is steady. The flow is fully developed between infinite parallel plates. Properties are constant.

Solution:
For steady, fully developed flow, conservation of momentum in the x-direction reduces to: ∑ Fx = 0 Evaluating the forces on the differential element shown above: P A1 − P2 A2 + τ T AT − τ B AB = 0 1

With length, dx, along the channel and a width W: P (Wdx ) − P2 (Wdy ) + τ T (Wdx ) − τ B (Wdx ) = 0 1 The width cancels. Shear stress at a solid wall, using Newton’s law of viscosity, is: Therefore,

τ =µ

dV dy

τT = µ

d VT dy

and

τB = µ

Substituting into the force balance and simplifying:

( P1 − P2 ) dy − µ
dP d2 V =µ dx dy 2

d VT d VB dx + µ dx = 0 dy dy

( d VT dy − d VB dy ) P − P2 1 =µ dx dy
V =

Recognizing that for fully developed flow, dP dx = constant , we separate variables and integrate twice:
1 dP 2 y + C1 y + C2 2µ dx The boundary conditions are: 1) at y = 0, V = 0; 2) at y = b, V = Vw Applying the boundary conditions: 1 dP 2 2) VW = b + C1b 1) 0 = 0 + 0 + C2 so C2 = 0 2µ x

so C1 =

The piping system that connects one reservoir to a second reservoir consists of 150-ft of 3-in. cast iron pipe that has four flanged elbows, a well-rounded entrance, and sharp-edged exit, and a fully open gate valve. For 75 gal/min of water at 50 °F, determine the elevation difference between the two reservoirs (in ft).

Approach:
The flow rate is set by the balance between the head caused by the difference in reservoir elevations and the frictional losses in the pipe. The steady, incompressible flow energy equation applied between points 1 and 2 is used to determine the elevation difference.

Assumptions:
1. The system is steady. 2. The flow is fully developed. 3. Properties are constant.

Solution:
The steady, incompressible flow energy equation is:
P V2 P V2 1 + 1 + z1 + hP = 2 + 2 + z2 + hT + ∑ hL ρ g 2g ρ g 2g

There is no pump or turbine, so hT = hp = 0 . We assume the surface of the reservoirs are large, so V1 ≈ V2 ≈ 0 , and the pressure at 1 and 2 are atmospheric, so P1 = P2. Therefore, taking into account all the minor losses: 2 ⎛ L ⎞V z1 − z2 = ⎜ f + K ent + K valve + K exit + 4 K bend ⎟ ⎝ D ⎠ 2g From Table 9-3, Figure 9-13 and Figure 9-14, Kent = 0.04, Kbend = 0.3, and Kvalve = 0.15. For cast iron pipe ε =0.00085ft , and for water from Appendix B-6 at 50 ºF, µ = 88 × 10−5 lbm ft s , ρ = 62.4 lbm ft 3 .

Vandals open the drain valve on a water tower that is 10-m in diameter with a water depth of 8 m. The water flows out a sharp-edged opening into a horizontal 30-m long pipe, both of which are 10-cm in diameter; the gate valve in the pipe is half opened. Assume the friction factor is 0.016. Determine: a. the time required for the tank to drain (in min) b. the time required for the tank to drain if only the sharp-edged opening and the valve are present (in min) c. the appropriateness of the friction factor value used.

Approach:
Conservation of mass is needed to determine the time to drain the pool. The driving pressure head decreases with time, so the head as a function of time is needed. The open system conservation of mass equation and the steady, incompressible flow energy equation are used to calculate the time.

Assumptions:
1. The system is steady. 2. The flow is fully developed. 3. Properties are constant.

Solution:
a) The open system conservation of mass equation is for the control volume defined as the water in the pool: dm dt = min − mout . Water only leaves, and expressing the mass in terms of volume and flow rate in terms of velocity: d ( ρV ) d ( ρ A1 z ) = = − ρ A2 V2 dt dt Density cancels so rearranging the equation:
⎛D ⎞ A dz = − 2 V2 = − ⎜ 2 ⎟ V2 dt A1 ⎝ D1 ⎠ We can obtain an expression for velocity by assuming (at any instant in time) that the steady, incompressible flow energy equation is applicable with a constant friction factor: P V2 P V2 1 + 1 + z1 + hP = 2 + 2 + z2 + hT + ∑ hL ρ g 2g ρ g 2g
2

At points 1 and 2 the pressure is atmospheric, so P = P2 . There is no pump or turbine, so hP = hT = 0 . Let 1 z2 = 0 (the datum) and drop the subscript on z1, the depth of water in the tank. The losses include an entrance, a valve, and line loss, so
V1 2 V2 ⎛ L⎞V2 + z = 2 + ⎜ K ent + K valve + f ⎟ 2 2g 2g ⎝ D ⎠ 2g The tank velocity can be described in terms of the pipe velocity by conservation of mass. Any mass flow rate from the tank must equal the mass flow rate through the pipe: m1 = m2

The friction factor is a function of Reynolds number and roughness. For a commercial steel pipe ε =0.045mm , and for water from Appendix A-6 at 10 ºC, µ = 12.9 × 10−4 Ns m 2 , ρ = 999.6 kg m3 . The Reynolds numbers are:
