QUESTION: 5

Assertion (A): The efficiency of a pump is generally less than that of aturbine.

90%. Assertion A is correct. Pump is against nature that so why efficiency is

low.

The time period of a simple pendulum depends on its effective length Iand the local acceleration due to gravity g. What is the number of dimensionless parameter involved?

Solution:

Ans. (b) m = 3 (time period, length and acceleration due to gravity); n = 2 (length

and time). Then the number of dimensionless parameter = m – n.

QUESTION: 15

Match List-I (Flow/Wave) with List-II (Dimensionless number) and select the correct answer:

Solution:

Ans. (d)

QUESTION: 16

List-I gives 4 dimensionless numbers and List-II gives the types of forces which are one of the constituents describing the numbers. Match List-I with List-II and select the correct answer using the codes given below the lists:

Solution:

Ans. (d) Euler number is concerned with pressure force and this choice is available for A in code (d) only. If one is confident, then there is no need to look for items B, C and D. However a cross checks will show that Froude number is concerned with gravity force, Mach number with elastic force, and Weber number with surface tension. Hence the answer is (d) only.

QUESTION: 17

Kinematic similarity between model and prototype is the similarity of

Solution:

Ans. (c) Kinematic similarity between a model and its prototype is said to exist if

the flow patterns are in geometric i.e. velocity, acceleration etc are similar.

Remember discharge is not related with kinematic similarity.

QUESTION: 18

A model test is to be conducted in a water tunnel using a 1: 20 model of a submarine, which is to travel at a speed of 12 km/h deep under seasurface.

Solution:

Ans. (d) Apply Reynolds Model law.

QUESTION: 19

A 1:20 model of a spillway dissipates 0.25 hp. The corresponding prototype horse power dissipated will be:

Solution:

Ans. (d) P_{r} = L_{r}^{3.5} = 20^{3.5} Therefore Pp = 0.25 × 20^{3.5} = 8944 hp

QUESTION: 24

A model test is to be conducted for an under water structure which each likely to be exposed for an under water structure, which is likelyto be exposed to strong water currents. The significant forces areknown to the dependent on structure geometry, fluid velocity, fluiddensity and viscosity, fluid depth and acceleration due to gravity.Choose from the codes given below, which of the following numbers must match for the model with that of the prototype:

1. Mach number

2. Weber number

3. Froude number

4. Reynolds number.

Ans. (d)

QUESTION: 25

The square root of the ratio of inertia force to gravity force is called

Solution:

Ans. (b)

QUESTION: 26

Consider the following statements:

1. Complete similarity between model and prototype envisages geometric and dynamic similarities only.

2. Distorted models are necessary where geometric similarity is notpossible due to practical reasons.

3. In testing of model of a ship, the surface tension forces are generallyneglected.

4. The scale effect takes care of the effect of dissimilarity between model and prototype.

Which of these statements are correct?

Solution:

Ans. (c) 1 is wrong. Complete similarity between model and prototype envisages

geometric, kinematic and dynamic similarities only. 4 is also wrong. The scale effect takes care of the effect of dissimilarity (size difference) between model and prototype.

QUESTION: 27

Why is multi-staging in centrifugal pumps used?

Solution:

Ans. (b) Centrifugal pumps are able to develop low pressure multi-staging in

centrifugal pumps is done for high head.

QUESTION: 28

Which one of the following statements is relevant to the specific speedof a centrifugal pump?

Solution:

Ans. (a)

QUESTION: 29

Consider the following statements regarding the specific speed of acentrifugal pump:

1. Specific speed is defined as the speed of a geometrically similar pump developing unit power under unit head.

2. At the same specific speed, the efficiency is greater with largercapacity.

3. The specific speed increases with the increase in outer blade angle.

4. The specific speed varies directly as the square root of the pump discharge.

Of these statements:

Solution:

Ans. (b) Specific speed is defined as the speed of a geometrically similar turbine

developing unit power under unit head. BUT specific speed of a pump is defined

as the speed of a geometrically similar pump of such a size that under corresponding conditions it would deliver unit volume flow of liquid against unit

head. That so why statement 1 is wrong.

QUESTION: 30

Assertion (A): With increase in discharge in a single stage centrifugal pump the BHP goes on increasing but beyond a certain discharge the BHP starts decreasing.

Reason (R): Efficiency of the pump starts decreasing beyond a certain discharge.

Solution:

Ans. (d) A is false and R is true.
