Determine the magnitude of the resultant hydrostatic force
that acts on the dam per meter of length. The density of

SOLUTION
Loading: The hydrostatic force acting on the circular surface of the dam consists of
the vertical component Fv and the horizontal component Fh as shown in Fig. a.

we have

## The horizontal component Fh consists of the horizontal hydrostatic pressure.

Since the width of the dam is constant (1 m), this loading can be represented
by a triangular distributed loading with an intensity of wC = rghCb =
1000(9.81)(3)(1) = 29.43 kN>m at point C, Fig. a.

SOLUTION
Fluid Pressure: The fluid pressure at an arbitrary point along y axis can be
determined using Eq. 913, p = g(0.5 - y) = 900(9.81)(0.5 - y) = 8829(0.5 - y).

Resultant Force and its Location: Here, x = 21 - 4y2. The volume of the
differential element is dV = dFR = p(2xdy) = 8829(0.5 - y)[221 - 4y 2] dy. the
Evaluating integrals using Simpsons rule, we have

Determine the resultant horizontal and vertical force
components that the water exerts on the side AB of the
2 ft
pipe per foot of pipe length; gw = 62.4 lb>ft3.

SOLUTION
Fluid Pressure: The fluid pressure at the bottom of the drain can be determined
using Eq. 913, p = gz.

Thus,

## w = 124.8(1) = 124.8 lb>ft w
