A spillway of an irrigation project is to be studied by means of a model constructed to a scale of 1 : 9. The prototype discharge is 1000 m3/s. Neglecting the viscous and surface tension effects, the required flow rate for the model is

The distorted models, used in the hydraulic studies, are those which
Distorted - model can have vertical scale exaggeration or slope exaggeration. Therefore they are not geometrically similar. It may have either geometrical distortion, or material distortion or distortion of hydraulic quantities or a combination of these.
A 1: 30 scale model of a submarine is to be tested in a wind tunnel for its drag when it is operating at 15 km/h in ocean. The kinematic viscosity of air is 1.51 x 10-5 m2/s and for water 1.02 x 10-6 m2/s. What is the velocity of air in wind tunnel that should be maintained for kinematic similarity?
The Reynold’s model law shall be applied in the case of fully submerged objects,
The Reynold’s model law ensures dynamic; kinematic and geometric similarities.
In model similarity, if gravitational and inertial forces are the only important forces, then what is the discharge ratio?
where Lr = ratio of length dimension.
If gravitational and inertial forces are the only important forces, then the Froude number must be the same in the model and prototype. Thus,
Which ratio is the Reynold's Number?
An orifice is discharging under a head of 1.25 m of water. A Pitot tube kept at its centre line at the vena contracta indicates a heap of 1.20 m of water. The coefficient of velocity of the orifice is
h0 be the head of Orifice
hp be the head of Pitot tube
Velocity of emergence of water from orifice can be given by =
The geometrical similarity between model and prototype is achieved by
Geometric similarity exists between the model and the prototype if the ratios of corresponding length dimensions in the model and the prototype are equal. Different model scales for horizontal and vertical dimension are used in a distorted model. Geometric similarity is achieved by using same model scale throughout.
Froude number is the ratio of inertia force to
