PROJECT- Water-hammer CIVIL 252, 2002 By M.S. Ghidaoui Due date: 4:00-5:00pm 10/5/2002 (Hydraulic Lab) A steady flow has been established from the upstream reservoir to the downstream reservoir through a pipe. The parameters are given: Upstream Reservoir: Elevation of bottom 50m, Depth 11.4m Downstream Reservoir: Elevation of bottom 50m, Depth 11.0m. Pipe: Length 1000m, Diameter 0.254m, Friction factor 0.02, located in the plan at elevation of 50m. (a) Calculate the steady state condition. That is, flowrate, velocity in the pipe. There is a valve connect to the pipe and the downstream reservoir. Water hammer is triggered at time t=3s, by closing the valve in very short time (Considered as sudden closure). Wave speed is 1000m/s. (b) Watch the animation; summarize the reflection property at the constant head reservoir (Upstream), and at the closed valve (downstream). (c) Calculated the water-hammer pressure by Joukowsky relation. Compare it to the

Unformatted text preview: results by TranSAM. (d) Plot pressure head history at the valve (meaning the upstream side), Of course, you should use the output of TranSAM. Indicate the period of water-hammer. (e) Plot pressure head history at the mid-length of the pipe; indicate the period of water-hammer. (f) Change wavespeed of water-hammer, plot pressure head history at the valve. Discuss the effect of wavespeed. (g) Change friction factor, plot the pressure head history at the valve. Discuss the effect of friction factor. (h) Add vapour cavitation in the model; explain the “irregular” pattern in the pressure history. Comment on Joukowsky relation for design of pipeline. (hint: change VAPCAV to 1, which turn on the vapour cavitation in the model, and the lowest pressure can not be lower than vapour pressure.)...

    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.
