PROBLEM 2 (4 points)
A regulated lake with an area of 5 km2 has a water level of +11.07 at 07:00 am. The only inflow
to the lake is a constant 6 m3/s and the only outflow is through a power plant. How will the water
level vary during a day (24 hours) if 12 m3/s discharge through the power plant between 07:00
am and 19:00 pm and 2 m3/s discharge during the rest of the time?
PROBLEM 3 (6 points)
The fire brigade has developed a new high pressure nozzle to be used against aggressive
demonstrators at the next G7 meeting in Lund. The water speed is 20 m/s just at the 0.04 m
diameter nozzle outlet. How large force does each still standing demonstrator need to develop in
order not to be removed by the horizontal water jet? State all necessary assumptions clearly.

PROBLEM 6 (10 points)

A urine separating toilet has been installed. When the toilet tank is full the contents can be spread
to the ground. The tank is constructed through three steel plates (1.2 m x 1.2 m), out of these, one
has been divided along the diagonal so that the sides constitute two triangles (without lid
according to below figure, the tank is 1,2 m long in to the paper). The tank top is covered by a
plastic with holes. In the tank bottom five holes are connected to five hoses of equal properties (2
m long, 12 mm diameter, with friction coefficient f = 0.05). Assume local loss at hose entrance
k=0.8 and the hose bend k=0.3. The tank bottom is 0.5 m above the ground. Determine how long
time it will take to empty the tank if it is completely full from start. Assume that the contents
have the same properties as water. Disregard acceleration effects. In below figure the tank seen
from the side, note that just one of the five hoses is seen in the figure.

PROBLEM 7 (8 points)
A channel has a slope of 1 . The section is trapezoidal with the bottom width equal to 1 m and
sides sloping 1:2. The channel material is cement mortar. What depth must the channel have to
allow a uniform discharge of 2 m3/s?
PROBLEM 8 (8 points)
A submarine has the shape of an 8:1 ellipsoid. The water temperature is 20 C. The submarine has
a frontal area of Afront = 4.64 m2 and a drag coefficient Cd = 0.15.
a) Find the power required to maintain a velocity of 6.1 m/s fully submerged in the sea.
b) What is a likely method that has been used to find the value of Cd?
c) Now, assume that the value of the drag coefficient is not given. Instead you make an estimate
based on the approximation that the resistance is due to friction only. What is then the total drag
force? Assume that the shape of the submarine is a perfect cylinder with length L = 50 m.

1. = r.d. 1000 = 920 kg/m3; = = 2.810-5920 = 0.0258 Pas; = (V/h) =
0.028(6/0.0001) = 1548 Pa. The friction force F on the piston is F = A= 15480.150.3 = 219
N. The power loss P due to friction is P = FV = 2196 = 1.313 kW.
2. The continuity equation: dS/dt = Qin-Qout. During 07-19 continuity gives: dS/dt = (6-12) = -6
m3/s. Storage change dS = -6123600 = -259 000 m3. This corresponds to change in level -259
000/(5106) = -0.052 m. At 19 the lake level is then +11.07-0.052 = +11.018 m. During 19:00 to
07:00 the next day dS/dt = (6-2) = 4 m3/s. This gives dS = 172 800 m3. The corresponding lake
water level will be +11.018 + 0.035 = +11.053 m. Consequently, assuming no edge effects and
no other losses or inflows, the lake water level will vary in a linear fashion between +11.07 m at
7 am to +11.018 m at 19 pm. Next morning at 7 am the water level will be +11.053 m and then
decrease to +11.001 at the following 19 pm.
3. Assume that the horizontal water jet changes direction so that after hitting the demonstrator it
will have a perpendicular direction from the original one. The x-direction is along the horizontal
water jet and the y-direction is perpendicular to this. Use the momentum equation for a control
volume between a section A just at the outlet from the nozzle and section B just at the
demonstrator body. The force Px on the control volume is
Px = QVBx - QVAx = 0-103200.02220 = -503 N. Consequently, the demonstrator is affected
by 503 N from the water and needs to develop a similar force in the other direction. The force
corresponds to a weight of about 50 kg!
4. Fh = pressure force on gate side OA; Fv = pressure force on gate side AB; lh = lever arm for Fh
about hinge; lv = lever arm for force Fv about hinge; yc,OA, yc,AB = are vertical distances from water
surface to center of gate side OA and AB, respectively; yp,OA = vertical distance from water
surfaceto center of pressure on gate side OA; Ic,OA = second moment of area for gate side OA
about its center; AOA, AAB = surface areas for gate side OA and AB, respectively.
yc,OA = 4+1.5 = 5.5 m
yc,AB = 4+3 = 7 m
AOA = 35 = 15 m2
AAB = 25 = 10 m2
Ic,OA = 53/12 = 11.25 m4
yp,OA = yc,OA + Ic,OA/( yc,OA AOA) = 5.636 m
Fh = H20 yc,OA AOA = 809.3 kN
Fv = H20 yc,AB AAB = 686.7 kN
lh = (yc,OA 4 = 1.636 m
lv = 1 m
The moment about the hinge then becomes:
Pmin3 = Fh lh + Fv lv => Pmin = 670 kN.
5. Assign reservoir El. 30 by A; El. 250 by B; El. 300 by C; El. 200 by D; and the joint between
all pipes by J. The general friction equation gives:
hf1 = 0.02200/0.5516Q21/(2g2) = 10.6Q21; hf2 = 408.1Q22; hf3 = 1020.4Q23; hf4 = 242.1Q24;
Assume flow from reservoir B, C, and D to reservoir A. Denote the energy level in J by Hj.
Energy eqn B => J: 250 = Hj+hf2 <=> 250 = Hj+408.1Q22 (1)
Energy eqn C => J: 300 = Hj+hf3 <=> 300 = Hj+1020.4Q23 (2)
Energy eqn D => J: 200 = Hj+hf4 <=> 200 = Hj+242.1Q24 (3)
Energy eqn J => A: Hj = 30+hf1 <=> 250 = Hj = 30+10.6Q21 (4)

Continuity Q1=Q2+Q3+Q4 (5)

Solve the above equation system by guessing Hj (should be between 30 and 200 m if the
assumed flow direction is true), calculate Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4 by eqn (1) to (4), check with eqn (5).
This gives Hj = 67.7 and Q1= 1890 l/s, Q2 = 670 l/s, Q3 = 480 l/s and Q4 = 740 l/s.
6. The height h of the tank is calculated from 1.72/22 + h2 = 1.22 => h = 0.85 m. The water surface
area A varies depending on the water level A = ab where a is constant 1.2 m and b varies
according to b/z = 1.7/0.85 = 2; b = 2z and A = 1.22z = 2.4z. Assume point 1 on top of water
surface and point 2 in pipe center at discharge point. The vertical distance between 1 and tank
bottom is z = 0.494 m (0.5-0.012/2 0.5). The time it takes to change water level from z2 to z1
from a tank with varying water level is calculated by z2z1 Adz/(0-Qout) (assuming no inflow).
z1=0 and z2=0.85 m. Qout is a function of the water level in the tank. Assume quasistationarity for
flow. Energy equation between 1 and 2 (p1=p2=0, z1=z; V1=0);
0+0+z=V22/(2g) 0494 + (0.3+0.8+0.052/0.012) V22/(2g) => V2 = 1.37(z+0.494)
Qout=5V2Ap where Ap = area of pipe section. This gives Qout = 0.000775(z+0.494) then
t = 0.850 (2.4zdz)/(-0.000775(z+0.494)) => t = -3097.5 0.850 (zdz)/((z+0.494))
This gives t = -3097.5 (2/3(z+0.494)1.5 0.988(z+0.494)0.5)00.85 => t=1103 s = 18 min.
7. Manning gives: Q = So1/2AR2/3/n; So = 1/1000; Table 8.1 in text book gives n = 0.013 for
cement mortar. A = 1.0y+21/22yy where y is the required depth. P = 1.0 + 2y(1+22); R =
(y+2y2)/(1+2y5). This gives the flow:
Q = 0.0011/2(1.0y+2y2) ((1.0y+2y2)/((1+2y5)))2/3/0.013. Trial and error for Q=2 gives
y0.6 m.
