Continuity Equation at a Node: inflows to node i = outflows from nodes i Example: Continuity at Node 1: Q = Q 1 + Q 2 + Q 3 or : Q 1 + Q 2 + Q 3 Q = 0 Q 1 + Q 2 + Q 3 + (Q) = 0 Therefore, continuity states that: ode 7 : Q4 Q1 Q5 Sum of the outflows at node 1 the sum of the inflows into node 1=0 Continuity at Node 7: Q4=flow from node 3 towards node 7 and Q5=flow from node 7 towards node 6. That is, Q4 is an inflow into node 7 but Q5 is an outflow from node 7. Q 1 + Q 4 = Q 5 or Q 1 Q 4 +Q 5 = 0 Therefore, continuity states that: Sum of the outflows at node 7 the sum of the inflows into node 7=0 Continuity at Node i: Let the total number of inflows and outflows at node i be N. The inflows are numbered from p = 1 to j and the outflows are numbered form p= j+1 to N. Therefore, continuity (i.e., mass conservation) dictates that: 1 1 = = + = j p p N j p p Q Q Energy equation for loops: Reminder; Energy is scalar Energy is unique at a point Energy is path independent but work and heat are path dependent in flow ou tflow (2) (1) line 1 line2 Apply the energy equation form 1 to 2 along line 1 ( 29 + + + + = + + + = + + g V Z P g V Z P h h g V Z P g V Z P Line L Line losses 2 2 ) ( 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 1 1 1 1 1 2 2 2 2 2 1 1 1 Apply the energy equation between, and but following line 2: ( 29 + + + + = g V Z P g V Z P h Line L 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 1 1 1 2 Conclusion: ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 2 1 2 1 = = Line L Line L Line L Line L h h or h h The sum of all head losses around a loop=0.
