Unformatted text preview: Homework 6 Fluid Mechanics CE 3502 Fall, 2008 (1) A flow through a conduit is divided into two branches as shown. A gate valve, half open is installed in line A, and a gate valve, fully open, is installed in line B. The cross-sectional area of pipe A is twice of the cross-sectional area of pipe B. The head loss due to friction in each branch is negligible compared with the head loss across the valves. Find the ratio of the velocity in line A to that in line B (include elbow losses for threaded pipe fittings.) B , L A , L h h = . Assuming frictional losses are negligible, this means: elbow , L half _ gate , L elbow , L half _ gate , L h 2 h h 2 h + = + .
