HES 2340 Fluid Mechanics 1 1.0 INTRODUCTION The objectives of this experiment are as follow: 1. To demonstrate change in the law of resistance and establishing the critical law value of Re (Reynolds’s number) 2. To determine the relationship between head loss due to fluid friction and velocity for flow of water though bore pipes and also evaluate the theoretical and experimental result. Apparatus Required: 1. Pipe friction apparatus 2. Hydraulic Bench 3. Stop-watch 4. Volumetric measuring cylinder Unit Construction

HES 2340 Fluid Mechanics 1 2.0 THEORY Head Loss due to Friction Through Pipes For a circular pipe flowing full, the head loss due to friction (mH 2 O) may be calculated from the formula: (3.1) where, L =length of pipe between tappings (m) = 1 m for all pipes d = internal diameter of the pipe (m) u = mean velocity of water through the pipe (m/s) g = 9.81 (acceleration due to gravity, m/s 2 ) f = pipe friction coefficient (British) 4f = λ (American) Having established the value of Reynolds number R e for flow in the pipe, the value of f may be determined from a Moody diagram. (3.2) μ = molecular viscosity = 1.15 x 10 -3 Ns/m 2 at 15°C 1* = density = 999 kg/m 3 at 15 o C A simplified Moody diagram is included in Appendix A.
