FLUID MECHANICS (FM C002)
Friction Losses in Pipes:
This equipment allows the pressure drop of water passing through a hydraulically smooth circular pipe to be measured in detail and the pipe friction equation should be to be verified. The energy losses in pipes accessory consists of a test pipe, on the side of the equipment, which may be fed directly from the common supply tank. These sources provide high or low flow rates which may be controlled by a valve at the discharge end of the test pipe. Head lost between two tapping points in the test pipe is measured using manometer.
Energy Losses in Pipe Fittings:
This accessory permits measurement of losses in different pipe fittings. The equipment is mounted on a free standing framework which supports the test pipe work and instrumentation. The following typical pipe fittings are incorporated for study: miter bend, 90 elbow, sudden contraction and enlargement and Gate valve. All are instrumented with upstream and downstream pressure tappings. These tappings are connected to manometer tubes using removable PU pipes, mounted on the framework. A gate valve is used to control the flow rate..
Flow measurement Devices
This accessory should be designed to introduce students to three basic types of flow meters:
A flow control valve permits variation of flow rate through the circuit. Pressure tapings are incorporated so that the head loss characteristics of each flow meter may be measured. These tapings are connected to manometer with air bleed valve. The circuit and manometer are attached to a support framework which stands on the working top of the setup. The bench is used as the source of water supply and for calibrating volumetrically each flow rate. Aim is to measure the Discharge coefficient of each of the flowmeters
