Flow Through Notches

Flow Through Notches Points : Flow Through Notches, Types of Notches, Discharge over a Rectangular Notch, Discharge. over a Triangular Notch, Advantages of a Triangular Notch over a Rectangular Notch, Discharge over a Trapezoidal Notch, Discharge over a stepped notch, Discharge over the trapezoidal notch Notches A notch may be defined as an opening in one side of a tank or a reservoirs like large orifice, with the upstream liquid level below the top edge of the opening as shown in figure. Since the top edge of the notch above the liquid kel serves i.e. purpose, therefore a notch may have only the bottom edge sides. The bottom edge, over which the Liquid flows, is known as sill or crest of the notch and the sheet of liquid flowing over a notch (or a weir) is known as nappe or vein. A notch is, usually, made of a metallic plate and is used to measure the discharge of liquid.

Flow Through Pipes

Flow Through Pipes Points : Flow through Pipes chapter, Loss of Head in Pipes, Chezy’s formula for loss of head in pipes , Darcy Formula for loss of head in pipe, Hydraulic Gradient Line Introduction A pipe is a closed conduit, generally of circular cross-section, used to carry water or any other fluid. When the pipe is running full, the flow is under pressure. But if the pipe is not running full (as in the case of sewer pipes, culverts etc.), the flow is not under pressure. In such a case the atmospheric pressure exists inside the pipe. Loss of Head in Pipes When the water is flowing in a pipe, it experiences some resistance to its motion, whose effect is to reduce the velocity and ultimately the head of water available. Though there are many types of losses, yet the major loss is due to frictional resistance of the pipe only. The frictional resistance of a pipe depends upon the roughness of the inside surface of the pipe. It has been experimentally found that more the roughness of the inside surface of the pipe, greater will be the resistance. This friction is known as fluid friction and the resistance is known as frictional resistance.

Hydronamics

Hydronamics Points : hydronamics, bernoulli’s equation and its application, dynamics of fluid, energy of a liquid in motion, total head of a liquid particles in motion, bernoulli equation, limitations of bernoulli equation, practical application of bernoulli’s equation, Short Questions and Answers hydronamics Bernoulli’s Equation and its Application In the previous chapter, we have discussed the motion of liquid particles without taking into consideration any force or energy causing the flow. But in this chapter, we shall discuss me motion of liquids and the forces causing the flow. This topic is on known as Hydrodynamics. Dynamics of Fluid The dynamic of fluid flow is defined as that branch of science which deals with the study of fluids in motion considering of force which causes the flow. Energy of a Liquid in Motion The energy, in general, may be defined as the capacity to do work. Though the energy exists in many forms, yet the following are important from the subject point of view:
1 .Potential energy,
2.Kinetic energy, and
3.Pressure energy.

Hydrokinematics

Hydrokinematics Points : Hydrokinematics, Types of flow of the liquids (Hydro kinematics), Rate of Discharge, Types of flow of the liquids (Hydro kinematics): The subject of hydro kinematics deals with the study of velocity and acceleration of the liquid particles without taking into consideration any force or energy. Rate of Discharge The quantity of a liquid, flowing per second through a section of a pipe or a channel, is known as the rate of discharge or simply discharge. It is generally denoted by

Now consider a liquid flowing through a pipe
Let
a = Cross sectional area of the pipe, and
v = Average velocity of the liquid,
Discharge, Q = Area x Average velocity = a.v Notes: 1. If the at s in m2 and velocity in m/s then the discharge,
Q = m2 x m3/s = cumecs
2. Remember that I m 1000 liters.
Equation of continuity of a liquid flow
If an Incompressible liquid is continuously flowing through a pipe or a channel (whose cross-sectional area may or may not be constant) the quantity of liquid passing per second is the same at all sections. This is known as the equation of continuity of a liquid flow. It is the first and fundamental equation of flow.
