Department of Mechanical Engineering Tank Discharge Lab EML 4304C Written by: Christian Schneider Date: 11/6/2006 ABSTRACT Tank discharge of air in a compression tank can be modeled using thermodynamic equations if some assumptions are made about the process. In this experiment a distinction between Isothermal and Isentropic process are required to get the pressure – time relationship. The pressure and temperature of the air inside the tank were measured over time for three different cases, these cases were varied by changing the diameter of the outflow orifice. For each case the pressure and temperature were found to decrease exponentially with time as predicted by the thermodynamic equations. When the experiment has been completed is has been found that both the Isotropic and Isentropic models of the fluid pressure are fairly accurate and almost identical to each other. From the experiment it can be concluded that either of these models could be used to calculate the pressure within the take to a reasonable margin. 1
