Author: Dr. Taryn Bayles Abstract Here, students learn how harvesting energy from renewable sources will help meet the future needs of society. In the laboratory, the students will develop a system to store energy from a renewable source (represented in the laboratory by a light bulb, a box fan, or flowing water). The students will transport the energy, and use it to supply an electrical load (a light bulb) in a different physical location. In the process, students will learn about energy and power, and will learn about analysis of physical systems, modeling and simulation, and design under constraints. For more details CLICK HERE

Laminar and Turbulent Flows • Critical Reynolds number (Recr) for flow in a round pipe Re < 2300 Þ laminar 2300 ≤ Re ≤ 4000 Þ transitional Re > 4000 Þ turbulent • Note that these values are approximate. • For a given application, Recr depends upon – Pipe roughness – Vibrations – Upstream fluctuations, disturbances (valves, elbows, etc. that may disturb the flow) Minor Losses • Piping systems include fittings, valves, bends, elbows, tees, inlets, exits, enlargements, and contractions. • These components interrupt the smooth flow of fluid and cause additional losses because of flow separation and mixing • We introduce a relation for the minor losses associated with these components Piping Networks and Pump Selection Two general types of networks – Pipes in series • Volume flow rate is constant • Head loss is the summation of parts – Pipes in parallel • Volume flow rate is the sum of the components • Pressure loss across all branches is the same Head Loss due to Sudden Changes in Area of Flow Sudden Expansion: The head loss at a sudden expansion is given by the expression: Sudden Contraction: The head loss at a sudden contraction is given by the expression: • At a sudden enlargement of water line from 24 cm to 48 cm diameter pipe ,the hydraulic gradient rises by 1cm .calculate the rate of Flow • A horizontal pipe ,10 cm in diameter , is joined by sudden enlargement to a 15 cm diameter pipe .Water is flowing at the rate of 2 m^3/min.Find the loss of head due to abrupt expansion and pressure difference in two pipes.
