# Chapter 3 Local Energy (Head) Losses 3.1.

Introduction Local head losses occur in the pipes when there is a change in the area of the crosssection of the pipe (enlargement, contraction), a change of the direction of the flow (bends), and application of some devices on the pipe (vanes). Local head losses are also named as minor losses. Minor losses can be neglected for long pipe systems. Minor losses happen when the magnitude or the direction of the velocity of the flow changes. In some cases the magnitude and the direction of the velocity of the flow may change simultaneously. Minor losses are proportional with the velocity head of the flow and is defined by,

Abrupt Enlargement There is certain amount of head loss when the fluid moves through a sudden enlargement in a pipe system such as that shown in Fig. (3.1) Impuls-momentum equation is applied to the 1221 control volume along the horizontal flow direction. The forces acting on to the control volume are,

r a) Pressure force on the 1-1 cross-section, F1 = p1 A1 s b) Pressure force on the 2-2 cross-section, F2 = p2 A2 r c) Pressure force on the 3-3 cross-section, F3 = p3 ( A2 A1 ) r Laboratory experiments have verified that p3 = p1 , F3 = p1 ( A2 A1 ) r d) Momentum on the 1-1 cross-section, M 1 = QV1 r e) Momentum on the 2-2 cross-section, M 2 = QV2

Since the velocities in the reservoirs are taken as zero, V1 = V2 =0, and the pressure on the surface of reservoirs is equal to the atmospheric pressure,
z1 z 2 = h L

The ratio of local losses to the total head loss is, 0.62 = 0.0075 82.62 As can be seen from the result, the ratio is less than 1%. Therefore, local losses are generally neglected for long pipes.

3.4.1 The Three-Reservoir Problems, Parallel Pipes, Branching Pipes, Pump Systems. The Three-Reservoir Problems

Consider the case where three reservoirs are connected by a branched-pipe system. The problem is to determine the discharge in each pipe and the head at the junction point D. There are four unknowns (VAD, VBC, VDC and pD/ ), and the solution is obtained by solving the energy equations for the pipes (neglecting velocity heads and including only pipe losses and not the minor losses) and the continuity equation. The physical characteristics of the system such as lengths, diameters and f friction factors of the pipes, the geometric elevations of the water surfaces at the reservoirs and the piezometric head at the junction D are given. The reservoirs are located as, zA> zB> zC. There are three possible solutions of this problem, p a) z + = z A D

3.4.2 Parallel Pipes

Consider a pipe that branches into two parallel and then rejoins as in Fig.. . In pipeline practice, looping or laying a pipeline parallel to an existing pipeline is a standard method of increasing the capacity of the line. A problem involving this configuration might be to determine the division of flow in each pipe given the total flow rate. In such problems, velocity heads, and minor losses are usually neglected, and calculations are made on the basis of coincident energy and hydraulic grade lines.

Evidently, the distribution of flow in the branches must be such that the same head loss occurs in each branch; if this were not so there would be more than one energy line for the pipe upstream and downstream from the junctions. Application of the continuity principle shows that the discharge in the mainline is equal to the sum of the discharges in the branches. Thus the following simultaneous equations may be written.
h L1 = h L2 Q = Q1 + Q 2

## Substituting this to the simultaneous Equs (3.12),

(3.15)

Solution of these simultaneous equations allows prediction of the division of a discharge Q into discharges Q1 and Q2 when the pipe characteristics are known. Application of these principles allows prediction of the increased discharge obtainable by looping an existing pipeline.
Example: A 300 mm pipeline 1500 m long is laid between two reservoirs having a difference of surface elevation of 24. The maximum discharge obtainable through this line is 0.15m3/sec. When this pipe is looped with a 600 m pipe of the same size and material laid parallel and connected to it, what increase of discharge may be expected? Solution: For the single pipe, using Equ. (3.14),

h L = KQ 2 24 = K 0.15 2 K = 1067

For the looped pipeline, the headloss is computed first in the common section plus branch A as,
2 h L = K Q 2 + K A Q A 2 24 = 640 Q 2 + 427 Q A

In which QA and QB are the discharges in the parallel branches. Solving these by eliminating Q shows that QA=QB (which is expected to be from symmetry in this problem). Since, from continuity,
Q = Q A + QB QA = Q 2

## Substituting this in the Equ (1) yields,

2 24 = 640 (2Q A ) + 427 Q A 2 2 24 = 2987Q A

Q A = 0.09 m 3 sec Q = 0.18 m 3 sec Thus the gain of discharge capacity by looping the pipe is 0.03 m3/sec or 20%.
Example: Three pipes have been connected between the points A and B. Total discharge between A and B is 200 lt/sec. Physical characteristics of the pipes are,

f 1 = f 2 = f 3 = 0.02 L1 = L2 = L3 = 1000m D1 = 0.10m, D 2 = 0.20m, D3 = 0.30m Calculate the discharges of each pipe and calculate the head loss between the points A and B. Draw the energy line of the system.

Solution: Head losses through the three pipes should be the same.

Two possible problems may arise for these kinds of pipeline systems;
a) The physical characteristics of the system such as the lengths, diameters and friction factors, and also the discharges of each pipe are given. Water surface level in the reservoir is searched to supply the required (p/)min pressure head at points C and D. The problem can be solved by following these steps,

1) Velocities in the pipes are calculated using the given discharges and diameters.

Since there should be only one piezometric head (z+p/) at any junction, the largest value obtained from the equations (1) and (2) is taken as the piezometric head for the junction B. Therefore the minimum pressure head requirement for the points C and D has been achieved. 3) The minimum water surface level at the reservoir to supply the required pressure head at points C and D is calculated by taking the chosen piezometric head for the junction,

p z A = z + + h L AB B

b) The physical characteristics and the discharges of the pipes are given. The geometric elevations of the water surface of the reservoir and at points C and D are also known. The minimum pressure head requirement will be checked,

1) VAB , VBC and VBD velocities in the pipes are calculated. 2) Head losses along the pipes AB, BC and BD are calculated. 3) Piezometric heads at points B, C and D are calculated.

p z + = z A hL AB B p p p z + = z + hLBC C B min

p p p z + = z + h LBD D B min
4) If the minimum pressure head requirement is supplied at points C and D, the pipeline system has been designed according to the project requirements. If the minimum pressure head is not supplied either at one of the points or at both points, a) The reservoir water level is increased up to supply the minimum pressure head at points C and D by following the steps given above. b) Head losses are reduced by increasing the pipe diameters.

3.4.4. Pump Systems

When the energy (head) in a pipe system is not sufficient enough to overcome the head losses to convey the liquid to the desired location, energy has to be added to the system. This is accomplished by a pump. The power of the pump is calculated by,

N = QH

(3.16)

Where = Specific weight of the liquid (N/m3), Q = Discharge (m3/sec), H = Head to be supplied by pump (m), N = Power of the pump (Watt). Calculated pump power should be divided by = Efficiency factor of the pump.
