1 m /s = 10000 Stokes (or) 1 stoke = 10 m /s

2. What do you mean by absolute pressure and gauge pressure?

Absolute pressure: the pressure, which is measured with reference to absolute vacuum pressure or zero

pressure, is called Absolute pressure

Gauge pressure: the pressure, which is measured above the atmospheric pressure, is called as gauge pressure.

It is measured with the help of pressure measuring instruments

When vaporization takes place, the molecules start accumulating over the free liquid surface exerting

pressure on the liquid surface. This pressure is known as Vapour pressure of the liquid.

4. Define density or mass density?

Density of a fluid is defined as the ratio of the mass of a fluid to its volume.

Temperature affects the viscosity. The viscosity of liquids decreases when the temperature increases, while the

viscosity of gauges increase with the increase of temperature.

This is due to reason that the viscous forces in fluid are due to cohesive forces and molecular momentum

transfer.

In liquids the cohesive fours in a fluid are due to cohesive forces and molecular closely packed molecules and

with the increase in temperature, the cohesive fours decrease with the result of decreasing viscosity.

7. Define Compressibility?

A flow is said to be laminar if Reynolds number is less than 2000 for pipe flow. Laminar flow is possible

only at low velocities and high viscous fluids. In laminar type of flow, fluid particles move in laminas

or layers gliding smoothly over the adjacent layer.

Turbulent flow

In Turbulent flow, the flow is possible at both velocities and low viscous fluid. The flow is said to be

turbulent if Reynolds number is greater than 4000 for pipe flow. In Turbulent type of flow fluid, particles

TURBINES

Impulse Turbine:

If at the inlet of the turbine, the energy available is only kinetic energy, the turbine is known as impulse

turbine. The pressure at the inlet of the turbine is atmosphere. This turbine is used for high heads. The water

strikes the bucket along the tangent of the runner. Ex: Pelton Wheel Turbine.

Reaction Turbine:

If at the inlet of the turbine, the water possesses kinetic energy as well as pressure energy, the turbine is

known as reaction turbine. As the water flows through the runner, the water is under pressure and the

pressure energy goes on changing into kinetic energy. The runner is completely enclosed in an air-

tight casing and the runner and casing is completely full of water. This turbine is used for medium heads.

Ex: Francis Turbine.

6. What is mean by Draft Tube?

The draft tube is a pipe of gradually increasing area which connects the outlet of the runner to the tail race.

One end of the draft tube is connected to the outlet of the runner while the other end is sub-merged below the

level of water in the tail race.

turbine is known as inward radial flow reaction turbine. Here the outer diameter of the runner is inlet diameter

whereas the inner diameter of the runner is outlet diameter.

Outward radial flow reaction turbine: If the water flows from inwards to outwards through the runner, the

separation.

The indicator diagram for a reciprocating pump is defined as the graph drawn between the pressure head in

the cylinder and the distance traveled by the piston for one complete revolution of the crank.

It is defined as the ratio of actual discharge to theoretical discharge of reciprocating pump.

Cd=Qa/Qth.

If Cd > 1 then ve slip occurs and if Cd < 1 then +ve slip occurs.

The maximum speed of reciprocating pump is governed by the maximum allowable vacuum pressure or

minimum absolute pressure so that the separation of flow does not take place.

The difference between the theoretical discharge (QT) and actual discharge (Qact) is known as slip of the

pump.

Slip = QT - Qact

% Slip = [ (QT - Qact)/QT ] x 100

If Qact lesser than QT then the slip will be +ive.

7. How will you obtain the maximum speed during delivery stroke?

The absolute pressure head will be minimum at the end of delivery stroke. Thus, in the cylinder the separation

taking place at the end of delivery stroke only. In this case, the absolute pressure head will be equal to the

separation pressure.

hsep = Hatm + hs - had [or] had = Hatm + hd hsep

But maximum pressure head due to acceleration in delivery pipe is ,

2

had = (ld/g) (A/ad) r

Equating both the angular velocity () and Speed (N) are obtained. This N is the maximum spped of the

pump during the delivery stroke without separation.

If the water is in contact with one side of the piston the pump then it is known as single acting

reciprocating pump. For one complete revolution one suction stroke and one delivery stroke occurs.

If the water is in contact with both sides of the piston the pump then it is called double acting reciprocating

pump. For one complete revolution two suction strokes and two delivery strokes occurs.

Rotary pumps resemble like a centrifugal pumps in appearance. But, the working method differs. Uniform

discharge and positive displacement can be obtained by using this rotary pump. So, we can clearly say, it has the

combined advantages of both centrifugal and reciprocating pumps. The various types of rotary pumps are

1. external pump

2. internal pump

9

3. lobe pump

4. vane pump

10. Can actual discharge be greater than theoretical discharge In a reciprocating pump

When delivery pipe is short, suction pipe is long and the Pump is running at high speed, then

the actual discharge can Be greater than theoretical discharge in a reciprocating pump.

Otherwise, normally, actual discharge is less than the Theoretical discharge.

11. Which factor determines the maximum speed of a Reciprocating pump?

Separation and cavitations determines the maximum speed of a reciprocating pump. The pressure in

the cylinder should not fall below the vapour pressure of the liquid during suction Stroke. If it

happens, then separation and cavitations will occur.

12. When will you select a reciprocating pump?

For obtaining high pressure or head and low discharge, a reciprocating pump is selected.

13. Write the expression for pressure head due to acceleration in suction and delivery pipes.

2

Where, ls - length of suction pipe; A area of piston cylinder,

as area of suction pipe; angular velocity; r radius of crank.

2

Pressure head due to acceleration in delivery pipe, had = (ld/g) (A/ad) r Cost

Where, ld - length of delivery pipe; A area of piston cylinder,

ad area of delivery pipe; angular velocity; r radius of crank.

Max pressure head due to acceleration, ha = (l/g) (A/a) r

An air vessel is a closed chamber containing compressed air in the top portion and liquid at the bottom of

the chamber. At the base of the chamber there is an opening through which the liquid may flow into the

vessel or out from the vessel. When the liquid enters the air vessel, the air gets compressed further and when

the liquid flows out of the vessel, the air will expand into the chamber.

Priming of a centrifugal pump is defined as the operation in which the suction pipe, casing of the

pump and a portion of the delivery pipe up to the delivery valve is completely filled up from outside

source with the liquid to be raised by the pump before starting the pump.
