Unformatted text preview: Shelsie Kloepper BRAE 236 Ms. Orvis 12 October 2011 Lab 3: Basic Pipeline Hydraulics Summary This lab gave the BRAE 236 students hands on work with PVC pipes, reading pressure gages, and creating a tap in a pipe. The first important step to successfully completing the lab was to create a design to meet the specifications. The groups had to use approximately 100ft of PVC pipe with 6 corner connectors. The pipeline design had to start and end at the same elevation for the first series of tests, but in a later part the groups lifted the start up approximately 10ft so there was a change in elevations. This allowed the class to see what effects the change in elevation has on the pressure gages. Once the group had an acceptable design the students were ready to construct the pipeline. The construction process involved using primer and cement to hold the pipes firmly in place. Figure 1 to the right, shows a student connecting the pipes and turning them a quarter turn after having applied the...
