Roman Ferro BRAE 236 10/13/10 Lab 3 Basic Pipeline Hydraulics During this week’s lab we built a simple PVC pipeline to experience the effects flow rate and elevation has on a system. The type of PVC we used was schedule 40, which has thinner walls than schedule 80 and is used for systems with less pressure. We began by cutting the pipe with pipe cutters and then gluing them together in a pattern with 90 degree elbow fittings. In order to ensure that the pipes stuck with the fitting, we used a primer as well as cement to keep the pipes in place. As you can see in the photo, we applied the primer on before the cement. After the appropriate glue was placed on the pipe and the pipe was placed in the fitting, the pipe was then turned 45 degrees to ensure that the substance was properly mixed in place. We also looked for a small amount of cement on the ring of the pipe so that we knew the right amount was applied. Before we introduced the water into the system, we allowed it to sit for a period of time to make sure that the cement had time to set.
