Unformatted text preview: Additional Examples Related to Chapter I M.S. Ghidaoui, Spring 2002 CIVL252 Note: you do not learn by simply reading a problem and its solution! You must try to solve the problems by yourself, and discuss the difficulties encountered with your classmates, the teaching assistants and myself. Problem 1: Saline water flows into a cylindrical test vessel with a 2 m 2 cross sectional area. Initially, the rate of inflow is 0.1 m 3 and its salinity is 0.002 kg of salt per kg of water; the flow has been steady at these values for a considerable period of time. An outlet valve at the bottom of the tank permits a discharge Q proportional to the depth of flow in the tank h as follows: h Q 05 . = . If the inflow rate and salinity are both doubled at time zero, determine the depth of fluid in the tank and its salinity as a function of time. You may assume the fluid in the tank is completely mixed, the density of water is 1000kg/m 3 and that the expansion of water with the addition of salt is negligible. Solution: s m m dv dv s w s s v s w w v w = = Continuity Equation for water: d dt dv v n dA v n dA w w v w w w out in + + = ( ) ( ) The problem says that: the expansion of water with the addition of salt is negligible Thus, V V w Total 2245 ; w T 2245 d dt dv Q Q w w v w w in w w out w  + = ( ) ( ) w w in w out w const d dt dV Q Q =  + = ( ) ( ) d dt V d dt V Q Q W T out w in w 2245  ( ) ( ) Q Q Q out out water in salt = + ( ) ( ) but ( ) ( ) Q Q out salt out water << Q out = 0.05h 2245 (Q out ) water similarly: Q in = 0.2 2245 (Q in ) water ;t V T = Ah = 2h 2 0 05 0 2 dh dt h + = . . d dt e h e t t ( ) . . . 0 025 0 0025 01 = h t ce t ( ) . = + 4 0 025 but 0.05 h(t = 0) = 0.1 h(t = 0)=2m Thus, h(t) = 4  2e0.025t Continuity of salt: d dt dV v n dA v n dA s s V s s s in s s out + + = ( ) ( ) but s s V s w w dV s dV = s s in s in salt w in w v n dA Q s Q ( ) ( ) .

Problem 2: A reservoir operator has made a linear projection of inflow which has been increasing during the spring runoff period as follows: t I 1250 000 , 125 + = , where = I inflow in m 3 /hr and = t time from the present in hours. The regulated outflow is set for 90,000 m 3 /hr. If the present volume of water stored in the reservoir is 23(10 6 ) m 3 , determine the storage volume after 12 days....
