A pitot tube is used to measure the velocity profile over the cross-section. Confirm that the information given below is consistent with the laminar flow of a power-law fluid. 34 Thus, the calculated and experimental values of ux /uCL agree within reasonable limits of experimental accuracy. 150 Ns/m2 ) is flowing through a pipe of diameter 40 mm and length 200 m. Starting with the rheological equation, show that the relation between pressure gradient P/l and volumetric flowrate Q is: QD P r 4 1 8l p 1 4 X C X4 3 3 where l is the pipe radius, p is the plastic viscosity, and X is the ratio of the yield stress to the shear stress at the pipe wall.

Annual charges are a fraction ˇ of the capital cost. Obtain an expression for the optimum pipe diameter on a minimum cost basis for a fluid of density and viscosity flowing at a mass rate of G. Assume that the fluid is in turbulent flow and that the Blasius equation is applicable, that is the friction factor is proportional to the Reynolds number to the power of minus one quarter. Indicate clearly how the optimum diameter depends on flowrate and fluid properties. Solution The total annual cost of a pipeline consists of a capital charge plus the running costs.

The outer cylinder is held stationary while a torque is applied to the inner. 01 Nm. 1 Ns/m2 . Solution Concentric-cylinder viscometers are in widespread use.
