Lab 2: Reynolds Pipe Flow Lab Section: Gold Team Section 3 Lab Performed: 02/14/2012 Report Due: 02/21/2012 Team member: Yang Zhou, Jeff Xie, Megha Tiwari Team member e-mail addresses: zhou55@purdue.edu , xie11@purdue.edu , mtiwari@purdue.edu Objectives The objectives of this experiment are: 1. Distinguish between laminar, transitional, and turbulent pipe flow. 1. Calculate pressure loss in a pipe using friction factors. 2. Explore the affect of streamwise pressure gradients on transition. Method Method outlined in the lab procedure was followed without any deviation. Results and Discussion Part 1) Variation of Pipe Flow Rates and Diameters Diameter of Pipe = 3/8 inches Dam A Table Reservoir Height (cm) 12 Temperature (degree C) 15 Volumetric Flow Rate (ml/30 sec) 380 375 380 Average VFR (ml/s) 12.61 Dam C+A Table Reservoir Height (cm) 31.4 Temperature (degree C) 14.5 Volumetric Flow Rate (ml/10 sec) 650 675 635 Average VFR (ml/s) 65.33 Diameter of Pipe = 0.25 inches Dam A
