# IMPACT OF JET

MODULE - I
Force exerted by the jet on a stationary plate

Impact of Jets
The jet is a stream of liquid comes out from nozzle with a high velocity under constant pressure. When the
jet impinges on plates or vanes, its momentum is changed and a hydrodynamic force is exerted.
Vane is a flat or curved plate fixed to the rim of the wheel

## a) Plate is vertical to the jet

b) Plate is inclined to the jet

FORCE EXERTED ON SERIES OF CURVED PLATE.

## consider a series of curved vanes mounted

on wheel as shown in fig. in a radial curved
vane the radius of vane at inlet and outlet is
not same.hence the tangential velocities of
the radial vanes is not equal (u1=u2)
Let, R1
=radius of wheel at inlet of vane
R2 = radius of wheel at outlet of
vane
FORCE EXERTED ON SINGLE CURVED PLATE.
V1 =velocity of jet at inlet of vane
V2 =velocity of jet at outlet of vane
= angular velocity of the wheel
U1 = tangential velocity of vane at inlet = R1
U2 = tangential velocity of vane at outlet = R2
In the series of vanes, the mass of water striking per second is same as mass of
water coming out from nozzle per second, and AV1

Angular momentum/sec at inlet = (AV1*Vw1)*R1
momentum of water at outlet/sec =(mass/sec)*component of velocity V2 in
tangential direction = AV1*(-V2cos2)

= AV1 (Vw1u1+Vw2u2 )
If 2 > 90 ,WD/sec= AV1 (Vw1u1 - Vw2u2 )
In general for 2 < 90 and 2 > 90
WD/sec= AV1 (Vw1u1 Vw2u2 )
For 2 = 90, Vw2 = 0
WD/sec= AV1 (Vw1u1)

Effficiency of system(vane)
= work done/sec /kinetic energy/sec
= AV1 (Vw1u1 Vw2u2 )/ .5AV1 *V1
= 2(Vw1u1 Vw2u2 )/ V1
If there is no loss of energy when water is flowing over vanes, the work done and
effiency in terms of absolute velocities.
WD/sec= (initial kinetic energy/sec final kinetic energy/sec)
= 1/2 (AV1)V1 -1/2 (AV1)V2
= 1/2 (AV1)V1 -1/2 (AV1)V2/ 1/2 (AV1)V1
=V1 -V2/ V1 = 1- V2/ V1
FORCE EXERTED ON SINGLE CURVED PLATE.

## From above equation following points are observed :

(1) For given value of V1 , increases with decrease V2 ,at V2 = 0 , =
max.actual practice ,V2 0 ,without outlet velocity V2 ,incoming jet will not
move out of the vane

(2) efficiency of the vane is max when 2 < 90 .hence , Vw2 added to Vw1 .also
Vw2 is max when 2 = 0.but actual practice 2 0 .so efficiency is max when
2 is minimum
