Test: Flow Through Pipes - 1 - Question 1

In a pipeline the hydraulic grade line is above the pipe centre line in the longitudinal section at a point A and below the pipe centre line at another point B. From this it can be inferred that

Test: Flow Through Pipes - 1 - Question 2

In a horizontal pipe of diameter D and mean velocity of flow V if Δp is the pressure difference between two sections L distance apart, then wall shear stresst ζ0 is given by 

Test: Flow Through Pipes - 1 - Question 3

Consider the following conditions for the pipe network shown in the given figure (Notations have the usual meaning with suffixes 1, 2 and 3 referring to respective pipes):

1. Q1 = Q3
2. Q2 = Q1 + Q3
3. hf1 = hf3
4. hf1 = hf2 = hf3
Which of these conditions must be satisfied by this pipe network?

Test: Flow Through Pipes - 1 - Question 4

Maximum pressure rise due to water hammer in a pipeline (a = area of the pipe; V0 = Velocity, g = acceleration due to gravity; t = time period; L = length of the pipeline) is 

Detailed Solution for Test: Flow Through Pipes - 1 - Question 4

For instantaneous closure of valve, the pressure head at valve end is,
Δh = CV0/g
Time period for travel of pressure wave from one end to the other is,
t = L/C
Therefore velocity of pressure wave,
C = L/t
and  Δh = LV0/gt

Test: Flow Through Pipes - 1 - Question 5

Water of v = 1 centiStoke flows through a 1 cm diameter pipe. Critical flow will correspond to a discharge of approximately

Detailed Solution for Test: Flow Through Pipes - 1 - Question 5

Rec = 2000 For critical flow
Viscosity, v = 0.01 Stokes 
VD/v = 2000
Velocity of flow,
V = (2000 x 0.01)/1 = 20cm/s
Flow at critical Reynolds number,
Q = V x πD2/4 = 20 x π/4 x 1
= 15.7 cm3/s = 0.0157 I/s

Test: Flow Through Pipes - 1 - Question 6

A penstock is 2000 m long and the velocity of pressure wave in it is 1000 m/s. Water hammer pressure head for instantaneous closure of valve at the downstream end of the pipe is 60 m. If the valve is closed in 4 s, then what is the peak water hammer pressure in m of water?

Detailed Solution for Test: Flow Through Pipes - 1 - Question 6

We know that critical time is given by,
T0 = 2L/C ⇒ T0 = (2 x 2000)/1000 = 4s.
Actual time for valve closure, T = 4s.
We know that if T < T0, then the closure is known as rapid closure or instantaneous closure. Therefore the peak water hammer pressure will be equal to the water hammer pressure head for instantaneous closure of the valve at the downstream end i.e. 60 m.

Test: Flow Through Pipes - 1 - Question 7

The power transmitted through a pipeline is maximum when the head lost due to friction in the pipe is equal to

Detailed Solution for Test: Flow Through Pipes - 1 - Question 7

If H is the total supply head and hf is the loss of head due to friction, then head available at the outlet of pipe (neglecting the minor losses) is H - hf. If Q is the discharge through the pipe , V is the velocity of flow and L and D are the length and the diameter of the pipe respectively, then from Darcy-Weisbach equation we have,

and 
The power available at the outlet of pipeline is given by,

⇒ 
For a given pipe and head at the entrance, the condition for the maximum power transmitted through the pipe line may be obtained by differentiating Pw.r.t V and equating it to zero.
∴ 

⇒ hf = H/3

Test: Flow Through Pipes - 1 - Question 8

The relationship dp/dx = dζ/dy is valid for

Detailed Solution for Test: Flow Through Pipes - 1 - Question 8

dp/dx = dτ/dy is valid for a steady uniform laminar flow.

Test: Flow Through Pipes - 1 - Question 9

Water hammer wave velocity through a rigid pipe conveying sea water with specific weight = 10065 N/m3 and bulk modulus of elasticity = 1.96 x 109 N/m2 is

Detailed Solution for Test: Flow Through Pipes - 1 - Question 9

Test: Flow Through Pipes - 1 - Question 10

The stagnation pressure is the sum of

Detailed Solution for Test: Flow Through Pipes - 1 - Question 10

P/ρg is pressure head or static head.
V2/2g is velocity head or dynamic head or kinetic head.
P/ρg + V2/2g is stagnation head.
