Unformatted text preview: between these rules and the rules for handling electric circuits is not coincidental. Figure 6.24 shows three examples of multiple-pipe systems. The first is a set of three (or more) pipes in series. Rule 1 is that the flow rate is the same in all pipes Q1 V1d 2 1 or Q2 Q3 const 2 V2d 2 2 V3d 3 (6.105) Rule 2 is that the total head loss through the system equals the sum of the head loss in each pipe hA→B h1 h2 h3 (6.106) In terms of the friction and minor losses in each pipe, we could rewrite this as 8 | v v This section may be omitted without loss of continuity. | e-Text Main Menu | Textbook Table of Contents | Study Guide 376 Chapter 6 Viscous Flow in Ducts 3 2 1 B A (a) 1 2 B A 3 (b) z2 HGL z1 HGL zJ + pJ ρg z3 HGL 2 Fig. 6.24 Examples of multiplepipe systems: (a) pipes in series; (b) pipes in parallel; (c) the threereservoir junction problem. 3 1 (c) hA→B 2 V 1 f1L1 2g d1 K1 V 2 f3L3 3 2g d3 2 V2 2g f2L2 d2 K2 K3 (6.107) and so on for any number of pipes in the series.
