Problem Set 7, Problem #1 Given: An incompressible, Newtonian fluid flows steadily inside a constant area pipe of radius R. Axial velocity profiles are given for the laminar condition at Station 1 and turbulent condition at Station 2. 2 * 1 1 = = R r u U u C Station 1 7 * 2 1 = = R r u U u C Station 2 Find: a.) Volumetric flow rate at Station 1 and Station 2 b.) Ratio of U C1 /U C2 c.) Friction factor at Station 1 and Station 2 d.) Ratio of friction factor for Station 1 and Station 2 e.) Implication of friction factor ratio on pressure gradient at Station 1 and Station 2 Assumptions: Steady state, incompressible, fully developed flow at Station 1 and Station 2 (the flow is not fully developed between Station 1 and Station 2 where it turns from laminar to turbulent) Analysis: This is an internal flow problem that requires mass conservation, momentum balance, and constitutive relations for the shear stress at the walls Flow rates: dr R r r U rdr R r U rdr r u udA Q R C

What students are saying

• 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.
