Section A: Choose a minimum of 2 questions

Question 1 The flow over a model spillway is 98 L/s per meter of width. The scale of the model spillay to the prototype is 1:20.

Which non-dimensional parameter would you use to scale your model? brief justification.

(b)

What does the model flow rate represent for the prototype (i.e. at full scale)? [8 marks]

1 L/s = 0.001 m 3 /s. Therefore 98 L/s per meter width is equal to q = 0.98 m 3 /s / m

The length ratios are given as L m /L p = 1/20 and L p /L m = 20

(c)

Explain how non-dimensional analysis can be used to derive the spillway discharge equation

q = C d gH 3

where q is the discharge per unit width, C d is the discharge coefficient, g is gravita- tional acceleration and H is the water height above the spillway crest.

[6 marks]

What are the independent variables? Two

The dependent variable is q[L 2 T 1 ],. approaches

H[L] and g[LT 2 ] - treat C d as a constant (no dimensions). Hence 3 parameters and 2 dimensions. Hence 1 non-dimensional group (Π 1 ).

H[L] , g[LT 2 ], ρ[ML 3 ] and µ [MLT 1 ]. Hence 5 parameters and 3 dimensions. Hence 2 non-dimensional groups (Π 1 and Π 2 ).

Let Π 1 = qH a g b ρ c and Π 2 = µH a g b ρ c

Ensure Π 1 and Π 2 are non-dimensional and we get Π 1 = QH 3 2 g 2

U 1 = Q/A = 1.4/(0.75 × 1.8) = 1.037 m/s

E

Also continuity Q = U 1 b 1 y 1 = U 2 b 2 y 2

Hence U 2 = Q/(b 2 y 2 ) = 1.4/(1.2y 2 ) = 1.167/y 2

E

y 2 = 0.737 m (subcritical) or 0.377 (supercritical) y 2 cannot be less than y c

hence y 2 = 0.737 m. drop

(d) Explain how you would determine the maximum contraction without causing the flow to choke?
