EULER’S Equation along a streamline: EULER’S Equation along a streamline:
• Euler’s equation along a streamline is derived by Newton’s law of motion
to a fluid element moving along a streamline.
• Consider gravity as the only body force component acting vertically
downward.
• Consider the small fluid particle of size osby on in the plane of the figure
and oynormal to the figure as shown in the free-body diagram below. For
steady flow, the components of Newton’s second law along the streamline
and normal directions can be written as following:

1. high pressure recovery is attainable as head loss due to its installation is
small.
2. Because of its smooth surface, the venturimeteris not much affected by
wear and abrasion.
3. Less likelihood of becoming clogged with sediments.
4. Ideally suited for large flow of water, process fluids, wastes, gases and
suspended solids.
limitations of Venturimeter:
1. long laying length; space requirements are more.
2. Quite expensive in installation and replacement.
3. Difficult to construct.

1. Low initial cost.
2. It requires less space.
3. It can be used in wide ranges of pipe sizes (1.25cm to 150cm)
Limitations of orifice meter:
1. Pressure recovery is poor. The overall pressure loss varies
from 40% to 90% of differential pressure.
2. C

has a low value ranging between 0.6 to 0.65.
3. Orificemeter tends to clog; hence not suitable for slurries or
entrained particles.

Rotametersare a variable area device. The float moves
up and down in proportion to the fluid flow rate and the
annular area between the float and the tube wall. As the
float rises, the size of the annular opening increases. As
this area increases, the differential pressure across the
float decreases. The float reaches a stable position when
the upward force exerted by the flowing fluid equals the
weight of the float. Every float position corresponds to a
particular flow rate for a particular fluid's density and
viscosity. For this reason, it is necessary to size the
rotameterfor each application. When sized correctly, the
flow rate can be determined by matching the float
position to a calibrated scale on the outside of the
rotameter. Many rotameterscome with a built-in valve

• Essentially no pressure loss in the flowing stream.
• Economical and easy to install and remove from the pipelines.
• Sensitive to upstream disturbance to Reynoldno. changes and to
dimensional errors.
Limitation of pitot tube:
• Poor accuracy.
• Not applicable to dirty or sticky fluids
• Fluid must be moving with relatively high velocities in order to
generate measurable pressure difference.

Miscellaneous Flow Meters
•Turbine, vortex shedding flow meters.
•Mass meters include Coriolis and thermal types.
•Hot-Wire Anemometer: Electrically heated, fine platinum wire
immersed in flow Wire is cooled as flow is increased Measure
either change in wire resistance or heating current to determine
flow
•Electromagnetic Flowmeter: Electromotive force induced in
fluid as it flows through magnetic field and measured with
electrodes which is proportional to flow rate
•Ultrasonic Flow equipment: Uses Doppler frequency shift of
ultrasonic signals reflected off discontinuities in fluid
•Laser Doppler Anemometer which employ Doppler effect
and Hetrodyningof two signals
