(b)  (i)    Two tanks of fluid (r =998 kg/m3 and m= 0.001 kg/ms.) at 20°C
are connected by a capillary tube 4 mm in diameter and 3.5 m
long. The surface of tank 1 is 30 cm higher than the surface of
tank 2. Estimate the flow rate in m3/h. Is the flow laminar? For
what tube diameter will Reynolds number be 500? (10)

(ii)  Explain the concept of boundary layer in pipes for both laminar
and turbulent flows with neat sketches. (6)

13.  (a)  (i)  Derive an expression for the shear stress at the pipe wall when an
incompressible fluid flows through a pipe under pressure. Use
dimensional analysis with the following significant parameters:
pipe diameter D, flow velocity V, and viscosity m. and density r
of the fluid. (10)

(ii)  Use dimensional analysis and the MLT system to arrange the
following into a dimensionless number: L, r, m and s. (6)
Or
(b)  (i)  Consider viscous flow over a very small object. Analysis of the
equations of motion shows that the inertial terms are much
smaller than viscous and pressure terms. Fluid density drops out,
and these are called creeping flows. The only important
parameters are velocity U, viscosity m, and body length scale d.
For three-dimensional bodies, like spheres, creeping flow
analysis yields very good results. It is uncertain, however, if
creeping flow applies to two-dimensional bodies, such as
cylinders, since even though the diameter may be very small, the
length of the cylinder is infinite. Let us see if dimensional
analysis can help. (1) Apply the Pi theorem to two-dimensional
drag force F2-D as a function of the other parameters. Be careful:
two-dimensional drag has dimensions of force per unit length,
not simply force. (2) Is your analysis in part (1) physically
plausible? If not, explain why not. (3) It turns out that fluid
density r cannot be neglected in analysis of creeping flow over
two dimensional bodies. Repeat the dimensional analysis, this
time including r as a variable, and find the resulting non-
dimensional relation between the parameters in this problem. 

time ttr which depends upon the pipe diameter D, fluid acceleration
a, density r and viscosity m. Arrange this into a dimensionless
relation between ttr and D. (6)

angled triangles, determine the speed, guide blade outlet angle

manometric efficiency is 84% determine the fraction of the

## External Gear Pump

It has two identical intermeshing spur wheels A and B. One wheel
is connected to driving shaft and other one is driven. The liquid
is entrapped between teeth and allowed to discharge into delivery
pipe when the gear rotates.
Thee rotating gears itself set up sufficient pressure to force the
liquid.

34 B.E./B.Tech. Question Papers

## Internal Gear Pump

Two intermeshing wheels are internally meshed. A crescent
shaped partition is made between these two wheels. This space
acts as a seal between suction and discharge. During rotation the
space between inner and outer wheel increases and liquid fills the
space. Due to continuous rotation the fluid is pushed to delivery
end.

Lobe Pump
This pump resembles like a gear pump in action but not in
appearance. The wheels inside the casing have two or more lobes.
The liquid is entrapped & flows to the delivery end when lobe
rotates. The lobe itself build up sufficient pressure to force the
liquid.

Vane Pump
A disc is eccentrically rotating inside the pump casing. Slots
containing vanes are provided in the disc. The vanes are moved
against the casing due to centrifugal force. Due to continuous
rotations the liquid is entrapped and forced to the delivery end
with sufficient pressure.

15.  (b)  (ii)  Rotary pumps resemble like centrifugal pumps in appearance
but the working method differs. Uniform discharge and positive
displacement can be obtained by using rotary pumps.
The various types are
•  External Gear Pump
•  Internal Gear Pump
•  Lobe Pump
•  Vane pump

## External Gear Pump

It has two identical intermeshing spur wheels A and B. One
wheel is connected to driving shaft and other one is driven. The
liquid is entrapped between teeth and allowed to discharge into
delivery pipe when the gear rotates.
These rotating gears itself set up sufficient pressure to force the
liquid.

## Internal Gear Pump

Two intermeshing wheels are internally meshed. A crescent
shaped partition is made between these two wheels. This space
acts as a seal between suction and discharge. During rotation
the space between inner and outer wheel increases and liquid
fills the space. Due to continuous rotation the fluid is pushed to
delivery end.

Lobe Pump
This pump resembles like a gear pump in action but not in
appearance. The wheels inside the casing have two or more
lobes. The liquid is entrapped & flows to the delivery end when
lobe rotates. The lobes itself build up sufficient pressure to force
the liquid.

Vane Pump
A disc is eccentrically rotating inside the pump casing. Slots containing
vanes are provided in the disc. The vanes are moved against the casing due
to centrifugal force. Due to continuous rotations the liquid is entrapped and
forced to the delivery end with sufficient pressure.

the three unknowns in terms of two unknowns (µ and K).
∴ Express the value of a, b, and d in terms of c and e.

## Thus, number of fundamental dimensions, m = 3

∴ Number of p − terms = n − m = −3 = 3
Now, equation (1) becomes.
f1(p1, p2, p3) = 0 (2)
• Each p term contains m + 1 variables, where m = 3.
• So it contains 3 repeating variables.
• Since V is a dependent variable it should not be selected as

(b) Given
h is a function of r, µ,w, D and Q
h = r (r, µ,w, D, Q)
(or)
r1 = (h, r, µ,w, D, Q) = 0 (1)
Hence, total number of variables n = 6
Number of fundamental dimensions, m = 3
Dimensions of each variable are
h = Dimensionless w = T −1
r = ML−3 D=L
m = ML T−1 −1
Q = L3 T −1

Number of p terms = n −m = 6 − 3 = 3
∴ (1) becomes, r1 (p1, p2, p3) = 0
Each p term contains m + 1 variables and m number of repeating
variables.
Choosing D, W and r as repeating variables, we have

## (b) (i) External gear pump

It has two identical intermeshing spur wheels A and B. These
two wheels are meshed with a fine clearance inside the casing.
When the fluid flows, it will make joint with the point of teeth
contact. Among these, one of the wheels is connected to the
driving shaft and the other one is driven. Before starting the
pump it is filled with liquid.

A B

## The liquid is entrapped between teeth and allowed to discharge

into the delivery pipe when the gear rotates. These rotating
gears itself set up sufficient pressure to force the liquid. So,
each and every tooth on the wheels acts as a piston of a recip-
rocating pump.

## (ii) Lobe pump

This pump resembles like a gear pump in action but not in
appearance. The specially designed wheels are arranged inside
the casing. The wheels have two or more lobes. Here also, the
liquid is filled in the pump before it starts.

## A disc is eccentrically rotating inside the pump casing. Slots

containing vanes are provided on the disc. The vanes are moved
against the casing due to centrifugal force when the disc rotates.
So, the liquid tight seal is formed. Due to continuous rotation of
disc, the liquid is entrapped and forced to the delivery end with
sufficient pressure. The vanes are generally hinged. In some
cases, springs are used to press the vanes against casing.

11. (a) Properties of Hydraulic Fluid

Viscosity
Viscosity is a measure of a hydraulic fluid’s resistance to flow. It is a
hydraulic fluid’s most important characteristic and has a significant
impact on the operation of the system.
When a hydraulic oil is too thin (low viscosity), it does not seal suf-
ficiently. This leads to leakage and wear of parts. When a hydraulic
oil is too thick (high viscosity), the fluid will be more difficult to
pump through the system and may reduce operating efficiency.
All hydraulic fluids must be able to retain optimum viscosity during
operation in cold or hot temperatures, in order to consistently and
effectively transmit power.

Compressibility
Compressibility is a measure of the amount of volume reduction due
to pressure. Although hydraulic oils are basically incompressible,
slight volume reductions can occur under certain pressure ranges.
Compressibility increases with pressure and temperature and has
significant effects on high-pressure fluid systems. It causes servo
failure, efficiency loss, and cavitation; therefore, it is important for a
hydraulic oil to have low compressibility.

Wear Resistance
Wear resistance is a hydraulic fluid’s ability to reduce the wear rate
in frictional boundary contacts. Antiwear hydraulic fluids contain
antiwear components that can form a protective film on metal surfaces

## to prevent abrasion, scuffing, and contact fatigue. Antiwear additives

enhance lubricant performance and extent equipment life.
Oxidation Stability
Oxidation stability is a hydraulic oil’s resistance to heat-induced
degradation caused by a chemical reaction with oxygen. Hydraulic
oils must contain additives that counteract the process of oxidation,
improve the stability and extend the life of the fluid. Without these
additives, the quality of the hydraulic oil will deteriorate quickly.
Thermal Stability
Thermal stability is the ability to resist breakdown at elevated tem-
process can be accelerated at higher temperatures. The result of poor
thermal stability is the formation of sludge and varnish which can
clog filters, minimize flow and increase downtime. In addition, as
these antiwear agents decompose at high temperatures, acids are
formed which attack bronze and yellow metals in piston pumps and
other hydraulic system components. Hydraulic oils can be formu-
lated with very high levels of thermal stability to minimize these
issues and help extend the life of the hydraulic fluid and the compo-
nents of the hydraulic system.
Filterability
Water can react with additives in hydraulic fluids forming oil insol-
uble material. These contaminants can precipitate from the lubricant
and block filters, valves and other components resulting in decreased
oil flow or the system going on bypass. Blockage can eventually
result in unplanned downtime. Hydraulic fluids are designed to be
filtered with modern filtration systems without fear of the additive
being depleted or removed from the system. This enables systems
to stay clean without sacrificing critical performance requirements
such as antiwear, rust protection or foam inhibition.
Rust and Corrosion Protection
In many systems, water can enter as condensation or contamination,
and mix with the hydraulic oil. Water can cause rusting of hydrau-
to form chemical species which can be aggressive to yellow met-
als. Hydraulic oil formulations contain rust and corrosion inhibi-
tors which prevent the interaction of water or other chemical species
from attacking metal surfaces.

Foam Resistance
Foam results from air or other gases becoming entrained in the
hydraulic fluid. Air enters a hydraulic system through the reservoir
or through air leaks within the system.
A hydraulic fluid under high pressure can contain a large volume of
dissolved or dispersed air bubbles. When this fluid is depressurized,
the air bubbles expand and produce foam. Because of its compress-
ibility and poor lubricating properties, foam can seriously affect the
operation and lubrication of machinery.
Proper foam inhibitors modify the surface tension on air bubbles so
they more easily break up.
Demulsibility
Water that enters a hydraulic system can mix or emulsify with the
hydraulic oil. If this ‘wet’ fluid is circulated through the system, it can
promote rust and corrosion. Highly refined mineral oils permit water
to separate or demulsify quickly. However, some of the additives used
in hydraulic oils promote emulsion formation, preventing the water
from separating and settling out of the fluid. Demulsifier additives
are incorporated to promote water separation from hydraulic fluids.
Hydrolytic Stability
When hydraulic fluids come into contact with water, the water can
interact with the additive system of the hydraulic oil resulting in
the formation of acids. Hydraulic fluids that lack hydrolytic stability
hydrolyze in the presence of water to form oil insoluble inorganic
salts that can block filters and valves inhibiting oil flow. This can
result in hydraulic system failure. Properly formulated hydraulic flu-
ids are designed to contain additives that are resistant to interactions
with water, helping to extend the life of the equipment.
Seal Compatibility
Leaking hydraulic fluids can cause many issues from simple house-
keeping problems to more serious safety concerns and lubrication
failures. Most hydraulic systems utilize rubber seals and other elas-
tomers to minimize or prevent hydraulic oil leakage. Exposure of
the elastomer to the lubricant under high temperature conditions can
cause the rubber seals to harden, crack and eventually leak. On the
other hand, hydraulic oil exposure can seal to swell excessively pre-
venting hydraulic valves and pistons from moving freely. Hydraulic
oils are tested against a variety of seal materials to ensure that the
hydraulic fluid will be compatible with seals under various conditions.

## 12. (a) Pipe Flow

Losses in Pipe
It is often necessary to determine the head loss, hL, that occur in a
pipe flow so that the energy equation, can be used in the analysis of
pipe flow problems.
The overall head loss for the pipe system consists of the head loss
due to viscous effects in the straight pipes, termed the major loss and
denoted hL-manjor.
The head loss in various pipe components, termed the minor loss
and enoted hL-minor.

That is,
hL = hL-major + hL-minor

## The head loss designations of “major” and “minor” do not necessar-

ily reflect the relative importance of each type of loss.
For a pipe system that contains many components and a relatively
short length of pipe, the minor loss may actually be larger than the
major loss.

Major Losses
The head loss, hL-major is given as;
lV 2
hL -major = f
D2 g
where f is friction factor.
Above mention equation is called the Darcy-Weisbach equation. It
is valid for any fully developed, steady, incompressible pipe flow,
whether the pipe is horizontal or on hill.
Friction factor for laminar flow is;
64
f =
Re
Friction factor for turbulent flow is based on Moody chart.
It is because, in turbulent flow, Reynolds number and relative rough-
ness influence the friction.
ρVD
Reynolds number Re =
μ
ε
Relative roughness =
D
(Relative roughness is not present in the laminar flow.)
The Moody chart is universally valid for all steady, fully developed,
incompressible pipe flows.
The following equation form Colebrook is valid for the entire non-
laminar range of the Moody chart. It is called Colebrook formula.

## 15. (a) Minimum Speed for Starting a Centrifugal Pump

centrifugal pump,

He = (u − u12 ) + (V22 − V12 ) + (Vr2 − Vr2 ) ⎤⎥

During starting of the pump, the fluid flow will not be there. So, the
fluid flow velocities become zero. It means the velocity due to kinetic
energy and flow velocity are zero. Only the pressure head caused by
(u 2 − u12 )
rotation of rotor will be real which is 2 . Pumping of fluid
2g
will start, when the speed of the pump attains the manometric head.
So, the condition will be,

Where manometric head H m = hs + hd + h f + h f +

If Vd = 0 and no friction losses in both suction and delivery pipes,

If manometric efficiency ηm is considered, then the minimum speed
to commence the flow will be,

## The following four types of characteristic curves are usually pre-

pared for the centrifugal pumps.
• Main characteristic curves
• Operating charactering curves
• Constant efficiency or mescal curves
• Constant head and constant discharge curves
1. Main Characteristic Curves
To obtain main characteristic curves of a pump, it is run at a constant
speed and the discharge is varied over the desired range measure-
ments which are taken for head (Hm) and shaft power (P) for each dis-
charge. Calculations are mode for the pump efficiency (η0). Curves
are then plotted for head, power and efficiency against discharge.

## Pumps are generally designed for maximum efficiency and that

occurs when the pump operates at the design speed. A particular
set of main characteristics corresponding to the design speed is
called operating characteristics. The operating characteristics help
to obtain the design discharge and heads, this corresponding to the
point of maximum efficiency.
3. Constant Efficiency or Mitchell Curves
These curves are also called as Iso efficiency curves. It depicts the
performance of a pump over its entire range of operation. The data
used for these curves is obtained from the main characteristic curves
namely h Vs Q and Hm Vs Q. For a given efficiency, the values
of discharge obtained for various speeds from the below figure.
A curve for the best performance is obtained when the peak points
to various Iso efficiency curves are joined.

## The performance of a variable speed pump is for which the constant

speed variation can be obtained by these curves. When the pump has
a variable speed, the plotted graph between Q and N and Hm and N
may be obtained. In the first case, Hm is kept constant and in second
case Q is kept constant.

The fluid element is of very small dimension, i.e., dx, dy and ds.
Consider an arbitrary fluid element of wedge shape in a fluid
may at rest as shown in the figure below. Let the width of the
element perpendicular to the plane of paper is unity and Px,
Py and Pz are the pressures or intensity of pressure acting on
the face AB, AC and BC respectively. Let ∠ABC = 0. Then the
forces acting on the element are:
• Pressure forces normal to the surfaces.
• Weight of element in the vertical direction.
The forces on the faces are:
Force on the face AB = px × Area of face AB
= px × dy × 1
Similarly force on the face AC = py × dx × 1
Face on the face BC = pz × ds × 1
Weight of element = (Mass of element) × g
⎛ AB × AC ⎞
= (Volume × ρ ) × g = ⎜ × 1⎟ × PX
⎝ 2 ⎠

## where r = density of fluid.

Resolving the forces in x-direction, we have
px × dy × 1 – r (ds × 1) sin (90º − q) = 0
or px × dy × 1 – pz ds × 1 cos q = 0
But from the figure ds cos q = AB = dy
∴ px × dy × 1 – pz × dy × 1 = 0
or px = pz (1)

dxdy
or p y × d x − pz ds sin θ − × p× g = 0

But ds sin q = dx and also the element is very small and hence
weight is negligible.
∴ py dx – pz × dx = 0 or py = pz
From equations (1) and (2), we have
px = py = pz.
The above equation shows that the pressure at any point in x, y
and z directions is equal.
Since the choice of fluid element was completely arbitrary,
which meas the pressure at any point is the same in all directions.

Density of air P = 1.2 kg/m3
Let h = Height of the mountain from sea level.
We know that as the elevation above the sea-level increases, the
atmospheric pressure decreases. Here the density of air is given
as constant, hence the pressure at any height ‘h’ above the sea-
level is given by the equation
p = P0 − P × g × h
P0 − P 101396 − 98060
or h = = = 283.33 m.
P×g 1.2 × 9.81
Here pressure head (Z) is given as 760 mm of Hg.
Hence (P/Pg) = 760 mm of Hg.
The density (r) for mercury = 13.6 × 1000 kg/m3.
Hence pressure (P) will be equal to r × g × Z

## (b) (i) Gear Pump

It is a rotary pump in which two gears mesh to provide the
pumping action. This type of pump mostly used for cooling
water and pressure oil to be supplied for lubrication to motors,
turbines, machine tools, etc.
Gear pump consists of two identical intermeshing gears work-
ing in a fine clearance inside a casing. One of the gear is keyed
to a driving shaft. The other gear revolves due to driving gear.
The space between teeth and the casing is filled with oil. The oil
is carried round between the gears form the suction pipe to the
delivery pipe.

Casino

Delivery
Suction

The mechanical contact between the gears does not allow the
flow from inlet to outlet directly. The outer radius tips of the
gears and sides of the gears form apart off moving oil.
The oil pushed into the delivery pipe, cannot back into the suc-
tion pipe due to the meshing of the gears.

Vane Pump
A disc is eccentrically rotating inside the pump casing. Shoes
containing vanes are provided on the disc. The vanes are moved
against the casing due to centrifugal force when the disc rotates.
So the liquid tight seal is formed.
Due to continus rotation of disc, the liquid is entrapped and
forced to the delivery and with sufficient pressure. In some
cases springs are used to press the waves against the casing. But
vanes are generally hinged.

PART A
1. Viscosity is a measure of the resistance of a fluid which is being deformed
by either shear stress or tensile stress.

## 2. Pascal’s law or the principle of transmission of fluid-pressure states that

“pressure exerted anywhere in a confined incompressible fluid is trans-
mitted equally in all directions throughout the fluid such that the pressure
ratio (initial difference) remains the same.

3. + + =0

u, v and w = inlet velocity components
x, y and z = Directions.

4. Circulation is the line intergral around a closed curve of the fluid velocity
circulation is denoted by Γ = ∫

## 5. Laminar flow is also referred to as streamline or viscous flow. These

terms are descriptive of the flow because, in laminar flow
• layers of water flowing over one another at different speeds with virtu-
ally no mixing between layers,
• fluid particles move in definite and observable paths or streamlines,
and
• the flow is characteristic of viscous (thick) fluid or is one in which
viscosity of the fluid plays a significant part.
Turbulent flow is characterized by the irregular movement of particles
of the fluid. There is no definite frequency as there is in wave motion.
The particles travel in irregular paths with no observable pattern and no
definite layers.

6. A fluid flowing past the surface of a body exerts surface force on it. Lift
is any component of this force that is perpendicular to the oncoming flow
direction.

## 7. Specific speed Ns is a quasi non-dimensional number used to classify

pump impellers as to their type and proportions. In imperial units it is
defined as the speed in revolutions per minute at which a geometrically
similar impeller would operate if it were of such a size as to deliver one
gallon per minute against one foot of hydraulic head.

## 8. They can be classified as follows:

• Tangential flow turbine
• Axial flow turbine
• Mixed flow turbine

## 9. It is often used where relatively small quantity of liquid is to be handled

and where delivery pressure is quite large.

10. One of the main purposes of a volute casing is to help balance the
hydraulic pressure on the shaft of the pump. However, this occurs best at
the manufacturer’s recommended capacity. Running volute-style pumps
at a lower capacity than the manufacturer recommends can put lateral
stress on the shaft of the pump, increasing wear-and-tear on the seals and
bearings, and on the shaft itself.

## Construction Details of a Reciprocatin Pump

Components of reciprocating pumps
• Piston or plunger: A piston or plunger that reciprocates in a
closely fitted cylinder.
• Crank and Connecting rod: Crank and connecting rod mecha-
nism operated by a power source. Power source gives rotary
motion to crank. With the help of connecting rod we translate
reciprocating motion to piston in the cylinder.
• Suction pipe: One end of suction pipe remains dip in the liquid
and other end attached to the inlet of the cylinder.
• Delivery pipe: One end of delivery pipe attached with delivery
part and other end at discharge point.
• Suction and Delivery value: Suction and delivery values are
provided at the suction end and delivery end respectively. These
values are non-return values.
Working of Reciprocating Pump
Operation of reciprocating motion is done by the power source
(i.e. electric motor or engine, etc). Power source gives rotary motion
to crank; with the help of connecting rod we translate reciprocating
motion to piston in the cylinder (i.e, intermediate link between con-
necting rod and piston). When crank moves from inner dead centre
to outer dead centre, vacuum will create in the cylinder. When piston
moves outer dead centre to inner dead centre and piston force the
water at outlet or delivery value.

Where
Q: discharge in m3/sec
A: cross-section of piston or cylinder in m2
L: length of stroke in meter
N: speed of crank in r.p.m

(b) All centrifugal pumps must be primed by filling them with water
before they can operate. The objective of priming is to remove a suf-
ficient amount of air from the pump and suction line to permit atmo-
spheric pressure and submergence pressure to cause water to flow

into the pump when pressure at the eye of the impeller is reduced
below atmospheric as the impeller rotates.
When axial-flow and mixed-flow pumps are mounted with the pro-
pellers submerged, there is normally no problem with re priming of
these pumps because the submergence pressure causes water to refill
the pumps as long as air can readily be displaced. On the other hand,
radial-flow pumps are often located above the water source, and they
can lose prime. Often, loss of prime occurs due to an air leak on the
suction side of the pump. Volute or diffuser pumps may lose prime
when water contains even small amounts of air or vapor. Prime will
not be lost in a radial-flow pump if the water source is above the eye
of the impeller and flow of water into the pump is unrestricted.
In some cases pumps are primed by manually displacing the air in
them with water every time the pump is restarted. Often, by using a
foot value or a check valve at the entrance to the suction pipe, pumps
can be kept full of water and primed when not operating. If prime is
lost, the water must be replaced manually, or a vacuum pump can be
used to remove air and draw water into the pump.
A self-priming pump is one that will clear its passages of air and
resume delivery of liquid without outside attention. Centrifugal
pumps are not truly self-priming. So called self-priming centrifu-
gal pumps are provided with an air separator in the form of a large
chamber or reservoir on the discharge side of the pump. This sepa-
rator allows the air to escape from the pump discharge and entraps
the residual liquid necessary during re priming. Automatic priming
of a pump is achieved by the use of a recirculation chamber which
recycles water through the impeller until the pump is primed, or by
the use of a small positive displacement pump which supplies water
to the impeller.
• Impeller top must be submerged with the process fluid or water
without any air.
• If you want to pump the air in case of a centrifugal pump, pump-
ing water, operating at the speed of 2900 RPM, then you have to
run the pump at a speed of [2900 × 800] as the ratio of specific
gravity of air to water is 1/800. And it is practically impossible.
• If you don’t prime the pump and start the pump, then you will
not get the flow, pump will run dry and ultimately damage the
mechanical seal or gland packing.

12 (a) (i) Pressure is the force per unit area applied in a direction
perpendicular to the surface of an object. The SI unit pressure is

(b) (i) Surface tension is a property of the surface of a liquid that allows
it to resist an external force. It is revealed, for example, in the
floating of some objects on the surface of water, even though
they are denser than water, and in the ability of some insects
(e.g. water striders) to run on the water surface. This property
is caused by cohesion of similar molecules, and is responsible
for many of the behaviors of liquids. Surface tension has the
dimension of force per unit length, or of energy per unit area.

(ii) Capillary action, or capillarity, is the ability of a liquid to flow
in narrow spaces without the assistance of, and in opposition to
external forces like gravity. The effect can be seen in the draw-
ing up of liquids between the hairs of a paint-brush, in a thin
tube, in porous materials such as paper, in some non-porous
materials such as liquified carbon fiber, or in a cell. It occurs
because of inter-molecular attractive forces between the liq-
uid and solid surrounding surfaces. If the diameter of the tube
is sufficiently small, then the combination of surface tension
(which is caused by cohesion within the liquid) and adhesive
forces between the liquid and container act to lift the liquid.

## (b) (i) INTRODUCTION

Pelton Wheel or Pelton Turbine is a Tangential Flow Impulse
Turbine. This Turbine is used for High Heads and is named after
L.A Pelton. The water strikes the bucket along the tangent of
the tangent of the runner. The energy available at the inlet of
the turbine is only Kinetic Energy. The pressure at the inlet and
outlet is atmospheric pressure. The nozzle increases the kinetic
energy of the water flowing through the penstock. At the out-
let of the nozzle, the water comes out in the form of a jet and
strikes the buckets (vanes) of the runner. Pelton Wheel Turbine
is used for High Heads. Pelton Wheel Turbine has a Specific
Speed less than 30 (S.I) for single jet and between 30 and 60
(S.I) for multi-jet.
Construction
The main parts of Pelton Turbine are:
Nozzle and Flow Regulating Arrangement
The amount of water striking the buckets is controlled by pro-
viding a spear in the nozzle. The spear is a conical needle oper-
ated in the axial direction depending upon the size of the unit.
When the spear is pushed forward, the amount of water striking
the runner is reduced and when the spear is pushed back, the
amount of water striking the runner increases.
Runner and Buckets
Runner consists of a circular disc on the periphery of which a
number of buckets evenly spaced are fixed. The space of the
buckets is of a double hemispherical cup or bowl. Each bucket
is divided into two symmetrical parts by dividing wall which
is known as Splitter. The Splitter divides the jet into two equal
parts. The buckets are shaped in such a way that the jet gets
deflected through 160° or 170°. The buckets are made of cast

## iron, cast steel bronze or stainless steel depending upon the

head at the inlet of the turbine.
Casing
The function of water is to prevent the splashing of water and
to discharge water to tail race. The casing of Pelton Wheel does
not perform any Hydraulic function.
Breaking Jet
When the nozzle is completely closed by moving the spear
in the forward direction, the amount of the water striking the
runner reduces to zero. But the runner due to inertia goes on
revolving for a long time. To stop the runner in a short time, a
small nozzle is provided which directs the jet of water on the
back of vanes. This jet of water is called Breaking Jet.

## Points to remember for Pelton Turbine

• The velocity of the jet at inlet is given by
V1 = Cv 2 gH

## Where Cv = co-efficient of velocity = 0.98 or 0.99

H = Net head on turbine
• The velocity of (u) is given by
u = φ 2 gH

## Where φ = speed ratio. The value of speed ratio varies from

0.43 to 0.48
• The angle of deflection of the jet through the buckets is taken
at 165° if no angle of deflection is given.
• The mean diameter or the pitch diameter D of the pelton
turbine is given by
π DN 60u
u= ⋅ or ⋅ D =
60 πN
Jet Ratio
It is defined as the ratio of the pitch diameter (D) of the pelton
turbine to the diameter of the jet (d). It is denoted by m and is
given as
m = D/d ( = 12 for most cases)
Number of bucket on a runner is given by
D
Z = 15 + = 15 + 0.5m
2d
Where m = jet ratio
Number of Jets
It is obtained by dividing total rate of flow through the turbine
by the rate of flow of water through a single jet.

## (ii) The hydralic efficiency of a pelton wheel will be maximum

when the velocity of the wheel is half the velocity of the jet of
water at inlet.

## 14. (a) The head discharge characteristics of a centrifugal pump is given

below.
Discharge (lit/sec) 0 10 20 30 40 50
Head (meters) 25.3 25.5 24.5 22.2 18.7 12.0
The pump delivers fresh water through a 500 m long, 15 cm diam-
eter pipeline having friction coefficient of f = 0.025. The static life is
15 m. Neglecting minor losses in the pipe flow, find (i) the discharge
of the pump under the above conditions (ii) driving power of the
pump motor. Assume a pump efficiency of 72%.
Or
(b) An inward flow reaction turbine having an overall efficiency of 80%
is required to deliver 136 kW. The head H is 16 m and the peripheral
velocity is 3.3 H . The radial velocity of flow at inlet is 1.1 H .
The runner rotates at 120 rpm. The hydraulic losses in the turbine
are 15% of the flow available energy. Determine
• Diameter of the runner,
• Guide vane angle,
• The runner blade angle at inlet and
• The discharge through the turbine.

15. (a) Explain the working principle of single and double acting recipro-
cating pumps with neat diagram in detail. Also explain the effects of
inertia pressure and friction on the performance of the pump using
indicator diagrams with and without air vessel.
Or
(b) Explain the working principle of screw pump and gear pump with
neat diagram in detail.
