SELF ASSESSMENT EXERCISE 1

1. A smooth thin plate 5 m long and 1 m wide is placed in an air stream moving at 3 m/s with its

length parallel with the flow. Calculate the drag force on each side of the plate. The density of

the air is 1.2 kg/m3 and the kinematic viscosity is 1.6 x 10-5 m2/s.

Rex = u L/ = 3 x 5/1.6 x 10-5 = 937.5 x 103

CDF = 0.074 Rex -1/5 = 4.729 x 10-3

Dynamic Pressure = uo2/2 = 1.2 x 32/2 = 5.4 Pa

w = CDF x dyn press = 0.0255 Pa

R = w x A = 0.0255 x 5 = 0.128 N

2. A pipe bore diameter D and length L has fully developed laminar flow throughout the entire

length with a centre line velocity uo. Given that the drag coefficient is given as CDf = 16/Re

where Re =

u o D

, show that the drag force on the inside of the pipe is given as R=8uoL and

pL = 32uoL/D2

CDF = 16/Re

R = w x uo2/2 = CDF x (uo2/2) x A

R = (16/Re)(uo2/2) A

R = (16/uoD)(uo2/2) DL

R = (16 uo L/2) = 8 uo L

pL = R/A = 8 uo L /(D2/4) = 32 uo L/D2

SELF ASSESSMENT EXERCISE No. 2

1. Calculate the drag force for a cylindrical chimney 0.9 m diameter and 50 m tall in a wind

blowing at 30 m/s given that the drag coefficient is 0.8.

The density of the air is 1.2 kg/m3.

CD = 0.8 = 2R/(u2A)

2 Using the graph (fig.1.12) to find the drag coefficient, determine the drag force per metre length

acting on an overhead power line 30 mm diameter when the wind blows at 8 m/s. The density of

air may be taken as 1.25 kg/m3 and the kinematic viscosity as 1.5 x 10-5 m2/s. (1.8 N).

Re = u d/ = 8 x 0.03/1.5 x 10-5 = 16 x 103

From the graph

CD = 1.5

R = CD (uo2/2)A = 1.5 (1.25 x 82/2)(0.03 x 1) = 1.8 N

1. a. Explain the term Stokes flow and terminal velocity.

b. Show that the terminal velocity of a spherical particle with Stokes flow is given by the

formulae = d2g(s - f)/18. Go on to show that CD=24/Re

Stokes flow for ideal fluid - no separation - Re <0.2

R = Buoyant weight = (d3/6)g (s f) = 3 d ut

ut = d2 g (s f)/18

R = CD( ut2/2)( d2/4)

CD = 26/( ut d) = 24/Re

2. Calculate the largest diameter sphere that can be lifted upwards by a vertical flow of water

moving at 1 m/s. The sphere is made of glass with a density of 2630 kg/m3. The water has a

density of 998 kg/m3 and a dynamic viscosity of 1 cP.

CD =(2/ u2A)R = {(2 x 4)/ ( u2 d2)} (d3/6)g (s f) = 21.38 d

Try Newton Flow first

D = 0.44/21.38 = 0.206 m

Re =( 998 x 1 x 0.0206)/0.001 = 20530 therefore this is valid.

3. Using the same data for the sphere and water as in Q2, calculate the diameter of the largest

sphere that can be lifted upwards by a vertical flow of water moving at 0.5 m/s. (5.95 mm).

CD = 85.52 d

Try Newton Flow

D = 0.44/85.52 = 0.0051 Re =( 998 x 0.5 x 0.0051)/0.001 = 2567 therefore this is valid.

4. Using the graph (fig. 1.12) to obtain the drag coefficient of a sphere, determine the drag on a

totally immersed sphere 0.2 m diameter moving at 0.3 m/s in sea water. The density of the

water is 1025 kg/m3 and the dynamic viscosity is 1.05 x 10-3 Ns/m2.

Re = (ud/) =(1025 x 0.3 x 0.2/1.05 x 10-3) = 58.57 x 103 From the graph CD = 0.45

R = CD (u2/2)A = 0.45(1025 x 0.32/2)( x 0.22/4) = 0.65 N

5. A glass sphere of diameter 1.5 mm and density 2 500 kg/m3 is allowed to fall through water

under the action of gravity. The density of the water is 1000 kg/m3 and the dynamic viscosity is

1 cP.

Calculate the terminal velocity assuming the drag coefficient is CD = 24 Re -1 (1+ 0.15Re 0.687)

CD = F/(Area x Dynamic Pressure)

6. A glass sphere of density 2 690 kg/m3 falls freely through water. Find the terminal velocity for

a 4 mm diameter sphere and a 0.4 mm diameter sphere. The drag coefficient is

CD = 8F/{d2u2}

This coefficient is related to the Reynolds number as shown for low values of Re.

The density and viscosity of the water is 997 kg/m3 and 0.89 x 10-3 N s/m2.

For Re >1000 CD = 0.44

For a 4 mm sphere we might guess from the question that Re is greater than 1000 and hence
