EXPECTED TO BE ABLE TO

2.1 Understand pressure and pressure variation in a fluid at

rest.

2.1.1

tube

Describe the relationship between absolute pressure,

pressure, and atmospheric pressure.

Calculate pressure by using barometer, piezometer, Umanometer and pressure difference in manometer.

DCN3113 HYDRAULICS

PRESSURE

Pressure is defined as a normal force (N)

Other units include bar, atm, kgf/cm, lbf/in=psi.

Liquid will exert pressure on all sides as well as bottom of the vessel

DCN3113 HYDRAULICS

Pressure Head

Pressure head is the internal energy of a fluid due to the

pressure exerted on its container.

Pstatic fluid = gh

g = acceleration of gravity

h = depth of fluid

EXAMPLE 2.1

Solution

Given; h = 4 m

Pressure head;

P = gh

= 1000 x 9.81 x 4 = 39240 N/m2

EXAMPLE 2.2

The gauge pressure in water mains is 50 kN/m2, what is the pressure head?

Solution

Given; P = 50 kN/m2

The pressure head equivalent to the pressure in the pipe is just:

P = gh

h= P

g

= 50 x 103

1000 x 9.81

= 5.1 m

DCN3113 HYDRAULICS

atmospheric pressure

Atmospheric Pressure, (Patm)

the force exerted by the atmosphere.

Also called as barometric pressure

Standard atmospheric pressure (at sea level);

101.3 kN/m = 10.3 m of water = 760 mm of Hg

The pressure which is measured with reference to absolute vacuum pressure

Occur at absolute vacuum

Gauge pressure is the pressure which is measured with the help of a

datum.

DCN3113 HYDRAULICS

Pabs = Patm + Pgage

Pvac = Patm Pabs

Vacuum Pressure, (Pvac)

Pressure below atmospheric pressure

Measured by vacuum gauges that indicate the difference between the atmospheric pressure and the absolute pressure.

EXAMPLE 2.1

What are the gauge pressure and absolute pressure at a point 3 m below the

atmospheric pressure is equivalent to 750 mm of mercury? The specific

gravity of mercury is 13.6 and density of water = 1000 kg/m3

Manometers use the

relationship between

pressure and head to

measure pressure

EXAMPLE 2.3

The right limb of a simple U-tube manometer containing mercury is open to the atmosphere while the left is connected

to a pipe in which a fluid of sp. gr. 0.9 is flowing. The centre of the pipe is 12 cm below the level of mercury in the right

limb. Find the pressure of fluid in the pipe if the difference of mercury level in the two limbs is 20 cm.

EXERCISE 1

A simple U-tube manometer containing mercury is connected

pressure is flowing. The other end of the manometer is open to

atmosphere. Find the vacuum pressure in pipe, if the

difference of mercury level in the two limbs is 40 cm and the

height of fluid in the left from the centre of pipe is 15 cm below.

Differential Manometer

Used to measure pressure difference between two points in a pipe

or in different pipes.

Most commonly type of differential manometer are :

(a) U-tube differential manometer

manometer

Example 2.4

A differential manometer, when connected to two pipes A and B, gives

the readings as shown in Figure. Determine the pressure (kN/m 2) in the

tube A, if the pressure in the pipe B be 55 kN/m2.

Solution

Given; PB = 55 kN/m2 = 55 x 103 N/m2

Exercise 2

A differential manometer is connected at two points A and B of two

pipes as shown in Figure 2.8. The pipe A contains a liquid of sp. gr.

= 1.5 while pipe B contains a liquid of sp. gr. = 0.9. The pressure at

A and B are 98.1 kN/m2 and 176.58 kN/m2 respectively. Find the

difference in mercury level in the differential manometer.

Task

1. What is the maximum gauge pressure of water that can be measured using a piezometer 2.5 m

high?

2. Calculate the pressure in N/m2 at 1.2 m depth from the surface of a liquid with a specific gravity of

0.8.

(Ans: 9417.6 N/m2)

3. A cylinder contains liquid which has gauge pressure of 165 kN/m2. Define the pressure in terms of :i.

Head of oil (Specific gravity = 0.9)

ii. Head of mercury

iii. Head of water

(Ans: i. 16.688 m, ii. 1.237 m, 16.820

m)

4. A U-tube manometer is used to measure the pressure of a fluid of density 800 kg/m3. If the density of

the manometric liquid is 13.6 103 kg/m3, what is the gauge pressure in the pipe if;

h1 =

0.5 m and D is 0.9 m above BC

h2 = 0.1 m and D is 0.2 m below BC

(Ans: 116.15 kN/m2, -27.45 kN/m2)

5. A differential manometer is used to measure the pressure difference between two points in pipe

carrying water. The manometric liquid is mercury and the points have a 0.3 m height difference.

Calculate the pressure difference when h = 0.7 m.

(An: 89.47 kN/m2)
