## To find viscosity of liquids and its variation with temperature

Title: - To find viscosity of liquids and its variation with temperature using Redwood Viscometer. Objective: - To study the variation in kinematic viscosity of the given oil by using Redwood Viscometer. Theory: - As the flow through the orifice is laminar, hence Hagen-Poiseuille equation may be used in this case. According to this equation, the discharge passing through the orifice may be given as, Q = D4 dp 128 dx ----------------------(1) Where: D is the diameter of the orifice, is the dynamic viscosity of the oil ,and (dp/dx) is the pressure gradient in the direction of the flow. In this case, if h is the initial head over the orifice, the pressure gradient responsible for the flow may be written as , - ( dp / dx ) = ( p1 - p2 / L ) = ( h 0/ L ) = h/L Where: L is the length of the passage of flow i.e. orifice and is the specific weight of the oil. p2 is the pressure at the outlet of the orifice and equal to atmospheric pressure. If Vol. is the volume collected in time t then discharge Q can be given as Vol./t the equation (1) can be written as, = D4 h t / (128 Vol. L ) - - -- - - - - - - - - - - -(2)

Above equation (2) may be written in terms of kinematic viscosity ( ) as = or D4 g h t / (128 Vol. x L )

= C1 t

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - (3)

from equation (3) it is clear that the kinematic viscosity () varies directly with time which ultimately depends upon the temp. i.e. as temp increases, the time to fill the same volume decreases. But here, the head h is not constant and is decreasing with respect to time, after opening the orifice. Hence a subtractive correction is applied and the equation (3) can be modified to = C1 t C2 / t --------------------------(4)

where C1 and C2 are the viscometer constants and in the case of the viscometer used here, this constants as suggested by the manufacturer are, C1 = 0.0026 and C2 = 1.175

## Laminar and Turbulent flows by Reynolds apparatus

Title: Study of Laminar and Turbulent flow by Reynolds apparatus.

Objective: - To study the nature of flow and and confirmation by Reynolds No. Theory: Osborne Reynolds, in 1883 conducted a number of experiments to determine the laws of resistance in pipe. By introducing a filament of dye into the water-flow taking place in a horizontal glass tube, he observed that nature of filament changes when the velocity of flow is changed. At low velocities the filament appeared to be a straight line through out the length of the glass tube, indicating laminar flow. At higher velocities, the filament after covering a small length of the tube suddenly mixes with the surrounding water, indicating turbulent flow. Experiments with pipes of different diameters and with water at different temperatures led Reynolds to conclude that the parameter which determines whether the flow shall be laminar or turbulent in a particular case is:Re = VD / Where, Re = Reynolds No. of motion. = Density of fluid. V = Velocity of flow. D = Diameter of pipe. = Coefficient of viscosity of fluid. The flow is laminar or turbulent according as the value of Re. If experiments are done with increasing rate of flow, the value of Re depends on the degree of care which is taken to eliminate disturbance in the supply or along the pipe. On other hand, if experiments are done with decreasing flow, transition from turbulent to laminar flow takes place at a value of Re about 2000 for flow in a circular pipe and below this the flow is inherently laminar in nature. Description of Apparatus: - The experimental setup consists of the Reynolds apparatus shown in the figure. It consists of a glass tube with a bell mouthed inlet. It connects large constant head tank on one end and regulating valve on the other end. Operating the regulating valve can control the rate of flow. The bell mouthed entrance provides a passage to ensure streamlined flow. A dye container is attached to a nozzle injecting a stream of dye into the center of glass tube. Procedure: Open the main supply valve and fill the tank of apparatus with water with outlet of glass tube partly open so that no air is trapped in the glass tube. Close the outlet valve of the glass tube and the inlet valve of the tank when tank is full. Leave the apparatus for some time so that water in the tank is at rest. Partially open the outlet valve of the glass tube and inlet of the tank so that the velocity of the flow is very small and the water level in the tank is fairly constant. Pour dye in container so that dye stream moves in a straight line through the tube showing that flow is laminar. Measure the discharge. Increase the velocity of flow and again measure the discharge.

Title: - Stability of floating bodies. Objective: -To determine the metacentric height of a given vessel under:a. Unloaded condition and b. Loaded condition Theory: - The investigation of the stability of the floating object requires the determination of the position of metacentre relative to C.G. of the object. For the different conditions of the stability following are the positions of the metacentre with respect to position of C.G. a. Stable equilibrium: b. Unstable equilibrium: c. Neutral equilibrium: M is above the C.G. M is below the C.G. M and C.G. coincides

Metacentre: - It is defined as the point about which body oscillates, when it is tilted by a small angle. The metacentre can also be defined as the point, at which the line of action of force of buoyancy in its tilted position, meets the axis of the body. Metacentric Height: - The distance between the center of gravity and the metacentre is known as metacentric height. Experimental determination of metacentric height: In the model of floating ship of total weight W; if a small weight w is moved by a distance x on its deck then the ship tilts by an angle . Then, Moment due to movement of load w = w x. Resisting moment induced due to self-weight = W GM sin . As the body is in the state of stable equilibrium, above two moments will be equal and opposite in nature. Hence; w x = W GM sin x / W tan (As is small, sin ~ tan )

GM = w

Description of Apparatus: The ship model is approximately 20 cm X 30 cm in plan and is about 10cm high. The model floats on water and can be tilted on both sides by moving a small weight on its deck. The tilt of the ship with respect to the vertical can be recorded on graduated scale, by using a plumb. The additional load may be added to the ship at the bottom.

Calibration of Venturimeter
Title: - Calibration of Venturimeter. Objective: - To determine the coefficient of Venturimeter Theory: By contracting the passage of flow, the velocity of the flow and hence the velocity head can be increased. This increase in the velocity head causes change in the pressure head. The pressure difference thus created is measured by a differential U tube manometer. The discharge through the pipe is calculated by the formula, Qact = Cd Where, Qact Cd H C C (H) 1 / 2 ---------(1)

= actual discharge through the pipe; = coefficient of Venturimeter; defined as the ratio of Q act to Qtheo = difference of head of water column between inlet and throat. = constant of Venturimeter = a1*a2 (2g)1/2/ (a12-a22)1/2 Where, a1 = area at inlet, a2 = area at throat.

Description of Apparatus: The apparatus consist of a Venturimeter to be calibrated fitted in a pipeline. A control valve is fitted in the pipeline to regulate the discharge through Venturimeter. Pressure tapings are taken out from the inlet and the throat of the Venturimeter and are connected to pressure measuring device. A measuring tank is provided to measure the actual discharge. Specification of Venturimeter: Diameter of inlet section Diameter of through section Procedure: 1. Start the flow by operating the control valve and wait for some time so that the flow is stabilized. 2. Check the pressure measuring device for the air entrainment and record the readings h1 and h2 of piezometers. 3. Collect the known volume of water in measuring tank and note down the time for collection with the help of stopwatch. 4. Change the discharge with the help of control valve and repeat the above procedure. = = 50 mm 25 mm

## Minor losses due to pipe fittings

Title: - Study of Minor losses due to pipe fittings (expansion, contraction, bend, elbow, gate valve, globe valve etc.). Objective: - To verify the losses of head due to bend, sudden enlargement, sudden contraction, analytically and experimentally. Theory: - In a fluid flow through pipe, because of resistance to flow, energy is lost in flow direction. These energy losses can be classified as, Major losses: - Loss of energy due to frictional resistance is called major losses. Minor losses:- Minor losses are those caused due to change in velocity. When velocity of flowing liquid changes either in magnitude or direction, large scale turbulence is generated due to formation of eddies in which a part of energy of flowing fluid is utilized, which is ultimately dissipated as heat and it is considered to be lost. Change in velocity is due to change in cross section, presence of bends and elbows, valves and fittings of all kinds. Although in long pipe these losses are of minor importance and can often be neglected. They may however outweigh the frictional losses in a short pipe. Loss of energy is proportional to the abruptness of the velocity change. As losses of energy vary as square of mean velocity, they are expressed in terms of velocity head of liquid.

Various minor losses are: 1. Loss of energy due to sudden enlargement: HL = (V1-V2 )2 2g 2. Loss of energy due to sudden contraction: HC = V22/2g {(1/ Cc)-1} 2

Calibration of V-notch.
Title: - Calibration of V-notch. Objective: - To determine the coefficient of discharge (Cd) of Triangular notch. Theory: - In hydraulic engineering, notches are commonly used to regulate flow in open channels. The relationship between water level upstream of the notch and the discharge over it is generally known, so that discharge at any time may be found by observing the upstream water level. Notches usually have sharp edges so that the water springs clear of the plate as it passes through notch. Following are the equations for discharge past sharp edged notches, Q=2/3 x (2g) 1/2 L h3/2 ------------Q=8/15 x (2g) 1/2 tan ( /2) h5/2 ------for the rectangular notch. for the triangular notch.

Where h is head of flowing water over the apex of the notch. The above equations are based upon the assumption listed as follows: A. The height of nappe at the plane of the notch opening is h. B. The velocity of flow is normal to the plane of the notch opening at all the points. C. The velocity of the approach channel is negligible. D. There is no contraction of the stream as it is passes through notch. In practice, however, none of these assumptions are satisfied. It is therefore, customary to rewrite the equation in the form: Q = Cd 2/3 x (2g)1/2 bh3/2 Q = Cd 8/15 x (2g)1/2 tan /2

## for the rectangular notch for the triangular notch

Where, Cd is coefficient of discharge of the notch is defined as the rat io of actua l discharge (Qact) to theoretical discharge (Qth). Description of the Apparatus: The apparatus consists of rectangular tank in which water is fed through a regulating valve. This water is made to enter in lower container, so as to reduce the approach velocity. Water that flows over the notch is collected in collecting tank. The collecting tank has an outlet on the side of the tank and a piezometer tube on other side of the tank for measurement of the depth of water in collecting tank. For measurement head over the sill of notch, single column inclined manometer is attached. Procedure: 1. Internal plan dimensions of the collecting tank, breadth and angle of the notch are measured. 2. The supply valve is opened and water is allowed to rise only up to sill of the notch and supply valve is closed tightly. 3. The sill level of the notch (h1) is measured with inclined manometer that is attached to the side of notch tank.

## Study of Flow Net by Electrical Analogy

Title: - Study of flow net by Electrical Analogy Method Objective: - To study of flow net by Electrical Analogy Method. Theory: - If the Velocity potential and the stream function satisfy the well-known Laplace equation, then family of curves given by = constant represent the equipotential lines while the family of curves = constant represent the streamlines. The equipotential lines and streamlines are orthogonal to each other. Thus the streamlines and equipotential lines form a net of mutually perpendicular lines, which is called as a Flow Net. The plane ideal fluid flow pattern through a passage of a given geometry can be plotted in the form of flow by 1) Mathematical analysis. 2) Hydraulic models 3) Graphical methods 4) Analogue methods Description of Apparatus: - The complete apparatus can be divided into two major parts 1) Experimental Setup 2) Analogue field plotter The experimental setup consists of a transparent tank of 400 x 450 mm crosssection area and 75 mm depth. In this tank the model under study is to be installed. The model is to be designed as per the requirements out of copper and Bakelite plates. A sample model arrangement is given along with the equipment as shown in figure and three types of experimental models can be studied with the help of sample model. A probe mounted on the trolley which can traverse in two planes is fitted on the tray to locate equipotential lines X Y co-ordinates of the probe at each point can be located on the scale fitted on the cross sides. Procedure for installing the models: - To get general idea about how the models are to be installed one specimen case have been illustrated Flow through sudden expansion or sudden contraction 1. Arrange the copper and Bakelite plate strip as shown in the sketch. 2. Paste them to the bottom and at individual joints by applying wax manually. 3. See that arrangement becomes watertight and fill water inside the model. 4. Now, it we have to study the flow through sudden expansion fitting then apply +ve voltage through analogue field plotter to copper plate-II and apply either 0 or ve potential to the copper plate-I. A potential difference between these two plates will show some potential gradient through water. 5. Now go on plotting equipotential lines say 3-4 points for each potential in the model and note down there X-Y co-ordinates on the table. The intermediate potential values can be chosen at the initial stage also. As soon as all equipotential lines have been located, draw a scale drawing of the model on drawing paper and the equipotential points can be plotted on it. Draw smooth lines through equipotential points. 6. Now the base work is complete and we can construct flow net on this diagram. Flow lines are normally perpendicular to the equipotential lines

and two consecutive flow lines from approximate squares between them also. With this background smooth curve perpendicular to equipotential lines can be drawn which denote flow net. 7. To get experiment on flow through sudden contraction fitting other procedure remains same. Only copper plate I is given +ve potential and plate II is given ve potential and same process as explained above is repeated.

Verification of Friction Factor for Laminar and Turbulent flow through pipes.
Title: -To find Friction Factor for Laminar and Turbulent flow through pipes.. Objective: 1. To study the change in nature of flow by establishing the upper critical Reynolds number and lower critical Reynolds number for a given pipe. 2. To study the variation of friction factor f with Reynolds number Re Theory: - The concept of critical Reynolds number that distinguishes the regimes of laminar and turbulent flow is indeed useful in the study of various fluid flow phenomena. Applying this concept to flow of any fluid in circular pipes, one may predict that the flow is laminar, if Reynolds number is less than 2000 and turbulent if it is greater than 4000 The following relations give the variation of the friction factor f with Reynolds number for a flow through circular pipes, For laminar flow, f = 64/Re For turbulent flow, f = 0.316/(Re)1/ 4 Also the head loss during the flow is hf = f l V2/(2g d)

Description of Apparatus: - The apparatus consist of four horizontal pipes mounted on fixed platform .The manometer tapings are provided at a fixed length L in meters for measuring the loss of head hf occurring in this length. The head loss can be obtained directly from manometer reading for particular discharge. The control valve is provided to regulate the discharge. Procedure: 1. Set the experimental setup on flow table. Join the connections of inlet, outlet and manometer. 2. Start the flow. Control it by control valve. For this flow measure the head loss from manometer reading. 3. Collect the flow for some specific volume and note the time required for it with the help of stopwatch. 4. Operate the control valve in such a way that minimum 20 to 25 observations of different discharge values can be obtained. 5. Take two sets of such observations. One set for increasing flow and another set for decreasing flow. Observation Table 1. Diameter of pipe 2. Length for which head loss is to be determined 3.

## Study of Heleshaws Apparatus

Title: - Study of Heleshaws Apparatus. Objective: - To study flow around the bodies. Theory: - There are two types of flows in real fluids; laminar, turbulent or it can be in transition state. To visualize the flow around bodies it is necessary that the flow is laminar and the Reynolds number should be less than 2000. For water to flow in streamline i.e. laminar flow, the space between transparent sheet is kept very small and the water and colour dye is introduced in alternate flow pattern to differentiate from each other. As flow passes around a body of geometrical shape, flow patterns are developed due to the shape of the body and are different for different bodies. The information achieved from this experiment is useful for design of transition in flow passages. Description of Apparatus: - The apparatus consists of channel of small width formed by two transparent perpex plate ;a overhead tank having two compartment -one large for water and other small for dye; controlling valve etc. The compartment is having perforations at different levels which allow the flow in channel. The various objects of different shapes are also provided to study the flow. Procedure :1) Introduce little water flow through base valve till all the air is drawn out and its place is taken by water. 2) Close the outlet tap primarily and maintain a drop by drop flow through it. 3) Introduce a water in upper reservoir having perforations at bottom and a dye in upper reservoir having perforations at distance from top. 4) Vary the flow rate by controlling the valve. 5) Observe and trace the flow lines thus developed around the object. 6) Change the orientation and study the flow pattern around various objects.

Measurement of Pressure
Title: Study of pressure measuring Devices. Objective: - To study the various pressure measuring devices like U tube manometer; differential manometer; micro manometer and mechanical gauges. Theory: Pressure is defined as the force exerted over the unit area. Measurement of pressure is essential at many places e.g. given fluid flowing through pipe, boiler etc. Depending upon the pressure and accuracy of measurement required various devices are used for pressure measurement. There are two types of pressure measuring devices 1) Manometers. 2) Mechanical pressure gauges. 1) Manometers: - Manometers are devices used to measure pressure at a point or pressure difference between two points in a system, in terms of head of liquid .To measure higher ranges of pressures; heavier liquids like mercury are used as manometric liquids. Lighter liquids like water, carbon tetrachloride etc are used as manometric liquids for lower pressure ranges. Types of manometers: - The common types of manometers are 1) Piezometer tube, 2) U Tube manometer, 3) Differential manometer, 4) Single column manometer, 5) Inclined tube manometer. 2) Mechanical pressure gauges: - Mechanical pressure gauges are devices used to measure pressure at point by balancing the fluid column by mechanical element. The commonly used mechanical pressure gauges are 1) Bourdon tube pressure gauges 2) Diaphragm pressure gauge 3) Bellows pressure gauges 4) Dead weight pressure gauge Description of Apparatus: - Experimental set up consists of board on which various pressure measuring devices like pressure gauge, vacuum gauge, U tube manometer, differential manometer, single tube manometer etc. are mounted.

Procedure: 1) Connect water supply pipe to inlet of the device board, 2) Open the gate valve (exhaust) completely, 3) See that mercury is filled in the manometers and bypass cocks are open, 4) Now, remove the air bubbles and observe manometer and gauges readings. 1) U-Tube manometer: - See that mercury is filled in the U- tube. Now open the inlet cock slowly, observing the mercury (sudden opening of the cock may causes mercury to be forced out of tube). By operating the cock provided at the T- connection, remove the air between water and mercury and note the rise of mercury level in the limb which is open to atmosphere. The difference in the mercury level in the two limbs is the pressure of water at the tapping.
50 DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

K.K. WAGH INSTITUTE OF ENGINEERING EDUCATION AND RESEARCH, NASHIK Prof. M.p.Ray and Prof. S.D. Bagade

2) Differential manometer: - Fill up sufficient mercury in the manometer. Follow the same procedure as for U-Tube manometer, for opening the cocks and observe the difference in the mercury levels. The two limbs of the manometer are connected at inlet and outlet of an orifice, so that the manometer directly shows the pressure drop across the orifice, in terms of mercury head. 3) Single Tube well manometer: - For measuring the pressure with higher accuracy, well manometers are used. For observations, fill up sufficient mercury in the well. Open the cock slowly and remove the air in the reservoir. As we go on closing the gate valve, pressure begins to rise. Measure the level of mercury initially and note down the rise of level for different gate valve openings 4) Inclined Tube Manometer. To take the observation, follow the same procedure for vertical tube well manometer. 5) Pressure Gauge: - When the pressure is above atmospheric, bourdon tube type pressure gauge is the simplest device of pressure measurement; because it gives direct reading of pressure. Pressure gauges are available in various ranges. For observation of pressure, open the manifold inlet cock (located on the back side) and slowly go on closing the gate valve. As the gate is being closed, pressure will go on rising, which will be indicated on the pressure gauge. Observe the pressure gauge reading while closing the valve. 6) Vacuum Gauge: - Vacuum gauges are used for measurement of pressures below atmospheric; i. e. negative pressure. Negative pressure is created at suction side of pump; the vacuum gauge used is bourdon tube type.
