Homework 5 Fluid Mechanics CE 3502 Fall, 2008 Due Date: EXTENDED to Tuesday, November 25 5:30pm in lab section drop box. FOR FULL CREDIT FOR EACH PROBLEM IN THIS ASSIGNMENT: SHOW ALL OF YOUR WORK; define all variables; justify all statements (1) A supertanker has length, breadth, and draught (fully loaded) dimensions of 3325 m, 48 m, and 19 m, respectively. Assume the tanker is operating at a speed of 15 kt (1 kt = 0.515 m/s). For these conditions and assuming that the boundary layer on the ship hull develops the same as on a flat plate, estimate the skin friction drag of such a ship steaming in 10° C water. a. What power is required to overcome the skin friction drag? b. What is the boundary layer thickness at 0.1 m from the bow, and what is it 1000 m from the bow? c. What is the shear stress at 0.1 m from the bow, and what is it 1000 m from the bow? (a) (I solved as I described in class – some of you chose a different geometry (like a box-like boat). If you did this, you were not penalized.)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
