639 Water enters a centrifugal pump axially at atmospheric pressure at a rate of 0.12 m3/s and at a velocity of 7 m/s, and leaves in the normal direction along the pump casing, as shown in Fig. P639. Determine the force acting on the shaft (which is also the force acting on the bearing of the shaft) in the axial direction.

642 Water (r 998.2 kg/m3 and m 1.003 103 kg/m s) flows through the 180 curved duct of Prob. 640. A1 A2 0.025 m2. The inlet flow is nearly uniform with b1 1.005, but b2 1.03. Run FlowLab with the template Curved_duct_velocity, specifying inlet velocity in the range of 1 to 40 m/s. For each case, record the inlet velocity, P1,gage, P2,gage, and the net horizontal force Fx of the water on the duct walls, as calculated by FlowLab. Using these pressures and the conservation laws, calculate Fx analytically for each case and compare with the CFD results. Discuss. 643 Water (r 998.2 kg/m3 and m 1.003 3 10 kg/m s) flows through the 180 curved duct of Prob. 641. A1 0.025 m2 and inlet velocity V1 1.0 m/s. The inlet flow is nearly uniform with b1 1.01, but b2 1.03. Run FlowLab with the template Curved_duct_area, specifying area ratios A2 / A1 ranging from 0.4 to 2.0. For each case, record A2 / A1, P1,gage, P2,gage, and the net horizontal force Fx of the water on the duct walls, as calculated by FlowLab. Using these pressures and the conservation laws, calculate Fx analytically for each case and compare with the CFD results. Discuss. 644 As a follow-up to Prob. 640, notice that for a large enough area ratio, the inlet pressure is actually smaller than the outlet pressure! Explain how this can be true in light of the fact that the CFD calculations model friction and other irreversibilities due to turbulence, and pressure must be lost along the axis of the duct to overcome these irreversibilities. 645 An incompressible fluid of density r and viscosity m flows through a curved duct that turns the flow through angle u. The cross-sectional area also changes. The average velocity, momentum flux correction factor, gage pressure, and area are known at the inlet (1) and outlet (2), as in Fig. P645. (a) Write an expression for the horizontal force Fx of the fluid on the walls of the duct in terms of the given variables.

Take the momentum-flux correction factor to be 1.04. Commercially available large wind turbines have blade span diameters as large as 100 m and generate over 3 MW of electric power at peak design conditions. Consider a wind turbine with a 90-m blade span subjected to 25-km/h steady winds. If the combined turbinegenerator efficiency of the wind turbine is 32 percent, determine (a) the power generated by the turbine and (b) the horizontal force exerted by the wind on the supporting mast of the turbine. Take the density of air to be 1.25 kg/m3, and disregard frictional effects.
