Fluid Friction Measurement
The equipment also includes a Pitot-static tube.
By traversing the Pitot across the pipe diameter, students can find the velocity profile and flow coefficients.
They also find the relationship between the flow rate and pressure differential.
Friction factor of some valves and fittings such as tee, elbow, Y Junction, gate and globe valves and friction losses in the pipe was measured in this system.
It measured fluid flow rates by using venturi tube and the orifice plate, and velocity of the fluid is calculated in terms of flow rate and pipe diameter.
A computer program is written to calculate the Reynold number of fluid, friction factor of pipe, the velocity of a fluid, frictional losses of fluid, flow rate and K factor of valves and fittings.
It is one of the best methods to measure losses in pipes and fittings experimentally.
Pressure differential transmitters, venturi tube and orifice meter to measure the flow rate, pressure drops on flow rate measurement devices and pressure drops of some valves and fittings to be measured K factors.
It also measured the temperature of the fluid by using J type Thermocouple.
An artificially roughened pipe allows students to study friction factor at different Reynolds numbers, covering the interesting transitional flow from laminar to turbulent.
They can compare results to those predicted by Nickuradse’s results and a Moody chart.
