Flow through pipe

  1. 1. A N Khudaiwala (L.M.E) G.P.PORBANDAR
  2. 2. Objectives Have a deeper understanding of laminar and turbulent flow in pipes and the analysis of fully developed flow.  Calculate the major and minor losses associated with pipe flow in piping networks and determine the pumping power requirements. A N Khudaiwala (L.M.E) G.P.PORBANDAR
  3. 3. Introduction Average velocity in a pipe • Recall: because of the no-slip condition, the velocity at the walls of a pipe or duct is zero. • We are often interested only in Vavg or Vm which we usually call just V. A N Khudaiwala (L.M.E) G.P.PORBANDAR Friction force of wall on fluid
  4. 4. Laminar and Turbulent Flows A N Khudaiwala (L.M.E) G.P.PORBANDAR
  5. 5.  Critical Reynolds number (Recr): Re at which the flow becomes turbulent.  For internal flow in a round pipe, • Re < 2300 ⇒ laminar • 2300 ≤ Re ≤ 4000 ⇒ transitional • Re > 4000 ⇒ turbulent  Recr depends upon • Pipe roughness • Pipe vibrations • Upstream fluctuations, disturbances (valves, elbows, etc. that may disturb the flow) A N Khudaiwala (L.M.E) G.P.PORBANDAR Transition from laminar to turbulent flow depends on a dimensionless quantity: Reynolds number, Re. ν DVavg =
  6. 6. Head Loss  In the analysis of piping systems, pressure losses are commonly expressed in terms of the equivalent fluid column height called head loss hL.  It also represents the additional height that the fluid needs to be raised by a pump inorder to overcome the frictional losses in the pipe A N Khudaiwala (L.M.E) G.P.PORBANDAR gd2 fLV g P h 2 avgL L = ρ ∆ =

  9. 9. Water Hammer Phenomenon in pipelines A sudden change of flow rate in a large pipeline (due to valve closure, pump turnoff, etc.) may involve a great mass of water moving inside the pipe. The force resulting from changing the speed of the water mass may cause a pressure rise in the pipe with a magnitude several times greater than the normal static pressure in the pipe. The excessive pressure may fracture the pipe walls or cause other damage to the pipeline system. This phenomenon is commonly known as the water hammer phenomenon A N Khudaiwala (L.M.E) G.P.PORBANDAR

  12. 12. Water Hammer Consider a long pipe AB:  Connected at one end to a reservoir containing water at a height H from the center of the pipe.  At the other end of the pipe, a valve to regulate the flow of water is provided. A N Khudaiwala (L.M.E) G.P.PORBANDAR
  13. 13.  If the valve is suddenly closed, the flowing water will be obstructed and momentum will be destroyed and consequently a wave of high pressure will be created which travels back and forth starting at the valve, traveling to the reservoir, and returning back to the valve and so on. This wave of high pressureThis wave of high pressure:: 1. Has a very high speed (called celerity, C ) which may reach the speed of sound wave and may create noise called knocking, 2. Has the effect of hammering action on the walls of the pipe and hence is commonly known as the water hammer phenomenon. A N Khudaiwala (L.M.E) G.P.PORBANDAR
  14. 14. The kinetic energy of the water moving through the pipe is converted into potential energy stored in the water and the walls of the pipe through the elastic deformation of both. The water is compressed and the pipe material is stretched. The following figure illustrates the formation and transition of the pressure wave due to the sudden closure of the valve A N Khudaiwala (L.M.E) G.P.PORBANDAR
