Cihan YILMAZ 030010099 Determining the Pipe Friction Loss and Local Losses through a Closed Pumping System Introduction Pipe friction loss test is a closed loop arrangement that includes a straight, long pipe fed by centrifugal pump, which sucks water from a tank. Head loss measurement is to be performed using a differential manometer connected to both sides of a unique piece of galvanized pipe. Local loss experiment includes a kind of piping system that goes out from a tank and have several minor loss components such as sudden contraction, expansion, elbos, valves, venturi- meters, orifice on the suction side of the pump. Fifteen piezometric tubes are placed on to appropriate points on the suction side of the in order to measure piezometric heads along the flow path. The flow-rate will be determined by counting optically the flow per unit time using a chronometer. Purpose of the experiment 1. To obtain experimental data of the Darcy-Weisbach pipe friction loss coefficient, λ with respect to non-dimensional Re number in turbulence flow.

    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.
