# Viscous Flow in Pipes

Fluid Mechanics
Types of Engineering Problems
• How big does the pipe have to be to carry a
flow of x m3/s?
• What will the pressure in the water
distribution system be when a fire hydrant is
open?
• Can we increase the flow in this old pipe by
adding a smooth liner?

Velocity Distributions

## • Turbulence causes transfer of momentum

from center of pipe to fluid closer to the pipe
wall.
• Mixing of fluid (transfer of momentum)
causes the central region of the pipe to have
relatively _______velocity (compared to
uniform
laminar flow)
• Close to the pipe wall, eddies are smaller
(size proportional to distance to the
boundary)

Pipe Flow: The Problem
• We have the control volume energy equation
for pipe flow
• We need to be able to predict the head loss
term.
• We will use the results we obtained using
dimensional analysis

Example: Find a pipe diameter
• The marine pipeline for the Lake Source Cooling
project will be 3.1 km in length, carry a maximum flow
of 2 m3/s, and can withstand a maximum pressure
differential between the inside and outside of the pipe
of 28 kPa. The pipe roughness is 2 mm. What diameter
pipe should be used?
Minor Losses: Expansions!

## • We previously obtained losses through an

expansion using conservation of energy,
momentum, and mass
• Most minor losses can not be obtained
analytically, so they must be measured
• Minor losses are often expressed as a loss
