Problem Set 7

As usual, the point here is not to make you do a lot of problems. You should simply do as

many of these problems as you need to do to become comfortable with the material and

hence do well on the exams. Also as usual, the best way to learn is to try the problems

without looking at the solutions, then to examine the solutions to see where you went

wrong, and then to try the problem again.

On the second page you will find a list of questions that have been asked in previous

years that will help you significantly with this problem set.

8.2 – 8.8, 8.12

Laminar flow

8.13 – 8.16, 8.18 - 8.22, 8.24 – 8.25,

8.26 is boring to do, but interesting to look at the solution

8.27 – 8.29. Hint for 8.29. When they say the manometer reading

will be "reversed," they mean the figure to the right:

you are a mechanical, environmental, or civil engineer. You may use non-circular

conduits as you design heating or cooling systems (e.g., ducts for airflow)

Pressure drops along pipes: 8.76 – 8.77, 8.80 – 8.81, 8.83 – 8.84, 8.86-8.87

Important Note: Problems 8.99 – 8.103 require you to use trial and error with the

Moody diagram. Have a look at one of the five problems and see how it's done. Then

try to do the same thing for the remaining four problems.

Questions from students in previous years about this problem set

1. Why is the head loss equation ( f * (l/D) * (V^2/2g) ) valid for any fully developed,

steady, incompressible pipe flow (horizontal OR on a hill) when it was derived

assuming that the pipe is horizontal?

We derived the relationship between head loss and pressure drop (which does

depend on whether the pipe is tilted)

We derived the relationship between head loss and shear stress (which does

depend on whether the pipe is tilted)

We did not derive the relationship between head loss and the average velocity,

which is the relationship you have written above. Instead, I just wrote it down and

stated it was true from dimensional analysis. Not very satisfying, I agree.

However, the equation you wrote is true regardless of whether the pipe is tilted or

not because the velocity V in your equation (which should really be the average

velocity) will be different if the pipe is tilted.

2. Also, why is the change in pressure equation ( = f * (l/D) * (pV^2/2) ) only valid

for horizontal pipes?

Hmmm.... I don't have this equation in my notes. I have these two equations:

head_loss = (delta P)/(gamma) - (length of pipe)(sin theta)

head_loss = ( f * (length of pipe/D) * (V^2/2g) )

Equation 1 is just the mechanical energy equation for a pipe tilted at angle theta

with no shaft work, with average velocity 1 = average velocity 2. Equation 2 is

the same as you wrote in your first question, obtained from dimensional analysis.

(delta P) = (rho)(f)(length of pipe/D)(V^2)/(2) - (rho)(g)(length of pipe)(sin theta)

Notice that the second term is just the change in pressure that would be expected

due to hydrostatics! Notice that the first term looks like kinetic energy -- (rho)

(V^2)/2

So the equation you wrote seems to just be the first term, without accounting for

the tilt of the pipe in the second term. I'm not sure where you got it. But you can

now see why it only applies to horizontal pipes.

3. For choosing which V to use in the minor loss equation (for example in 8.61 and

8.62), I know you should use the larger V, but I'm still confused on why. Also, is that

always the case?

Actually it's not that you should use the larger V. It has to do with whether it's a

contraction or an expansion. Look at figures 8.26 and 8.27

4. Why do 8.61 and 8.62 ignore major loss?

Because there is no information provided in the problem that would allow you to

calculate major loss. You would need to know the surface roughness of the pipe in order

to calculate major loss, and the problems don't provide that information.

I think the solutions made a bad substitution. I would have substituted the value of 8

instead of 14.

6. In 8.93, why is V defined before the nozzle, instead of at the nozzle? (This doesn't

fit the rule of using the larger V/smaller D for the V for head loss).

I think they are actually using the larger velocity but they made some algebra errors. I

don't see how they subtracted off V^2/2g from the right side. You should use the higher

velocity. The second full paragraph on page 421 of the textbook indicates that one should

use the downstream (high speed) velocity for nozzle calculations.

7. Also in 8.93, where does the 4^2 term come from in the second-to-last step?

They solved to find that V2 = 4V1. They then square V2 to get the 4^2. However, I think

there are other algebra errors in the textbook's solution. See my response to question 6

above.

8. For 8.99, how do they know which /D curve to look at (for the trial and error

method)?

It's labeled in the figure as 0.01.

9. I have a question regarding the use of the trial and error method via the Moody

Chart. In the solutions manual, the numbers obtained for f, the friction factor, seem

really exact (e.g. .04 and .039). I can't seem to ever get the same numbers as the

solutions manual

It may help to use a ruler, but I agree, sometimes it is difficult to get the exact same

answer that the textbook does. Just be sure to choose the correct /D curve.

10. and the Colebrook equation is very difficult to solve, and impossible for

me to solve without the use of a calculator.

You can't solve the Colebrook equation analytically. You use the Moody chart to solve the

Colebrook equation

11. Also, the initial guess seems rather arbitrary. At least, I can't figure out why they

chose what they did. The solutions manual usually get it after trial #2, but I don't

think that's possible for me. How do you suggest we estimate out initial guess? Is

there a better way than just picking a random number?

The textbook is choosing a first guess for f so that it's in the middle of the range of values

for f. Remember that's one of the best binary search algorithms -- split a pool into two,

then split the remaining half in half again, etc....

12. In problem 8.27, how do I calculate the viscosity of the asphalt? (I understand it

is 80,000 times that of water, but I don't think the value for viscosity of water in the

solutions matches that from the book)

They used the viscosity of water at 120 degrees, because the problem states that the

asphalt is at 120 degrees. The viscosity of water at 120 degrees is 1.164 e -5.

13. In problem 8.43 where did the Power loss due to friction equation come from?

This problem is about a horizontal pipe whose diameter does not change. Since there is a

pressure drop across its length, this pressure drop can only be attributed to the loss of

volume flow rate due to friction. Now volume [m^3] flowing per unit time [s] multiplied

by the pressure drop [N/m^2] gives a power [N.m/s= Joules/s].

Also -- If you think a bit, you can also obtain this identical equation from the

equations for Q and the head loss on the first page of your "equation sheet"

This is a pipe flow related problem. Please consult Ch 8, section 8.4 (The Moody Chart)

and Minor losses to see where these eqns. of equivalent length come from.
