A frequently used hydraulic brake consists of a movable ram that displaces water from a slightly larger cylinder, as

shown in the figure. The cross-sectional area of the cylinder is Ac and the cross-sectional area of the ram is Ar. The

ram velocity, V, remains constant. Assume that the gap between the cylinder and the ram is much smaller than the

displacement of the ram x.

A sonar buoy is being tested in a wind tunnel with a circular test section as shown in the figure. The air in the tunnel

has a density of 1.2 kg/m3 and the test section radius is R = 0.5 m. Measurements at location A indicate that the

incoming velocity is uniform with a velocity of U = 10 m/s while the downstream velocity, measured at location B,

is zero at the centerline and increases linearly with radius, r, measured from the tunnels centerline. A U-tube

manometer filled with water (with a density of 1000 kg/m3) is used to measure the pressure difference between

sections A and B (the pressure is assumed uniform at each section). The elevation difference between the two legs

of the manometer is H=0.03 m as shown in the figure.

An incompressible, viscous fluid with density, , flows past a solid flat plate which has a depth, b, into the page.

The flow initially has a uniform velocity U, before contacting the plate. After contact with the plate at a distance x

downstream from the leading edge, the flow velocity profile is altered due to the no-slip condition. The velocity

profile at location x is estimated to have a parabolic shape, u=U((2y/)-(y/)2), for y and u=U for y where

is termed the boundary layer thickness.
