Summary of Theory

Consider the flow of an incompressible fluid through the convergent-divergent pipe shown

in Fig.1. The cross-sectional area at the upstream section 1 is a1, at the throat section 2 is

a2, and at any other arbitrary section n is an. Piezometer tubes at these sections register h1,

h2, and hn as shown.

Assuming that there is no loss of energy along the pipe, and that the velocity and

piezometric heads are constant across each of the sections considered, then Bernoullis

theorem states that

u1 2 u2 2 un 2

h1 h2 hn

2g 2g 2g

Where u1, u2 and un are the velocities of flow through section 1, 2, and n. The equation of

continuity is

u1a1 = u2a2 = unan = Q

2

Q denotes the volume flow or discharge rate.

So that the discharge rate, from equation becomes:

In practice, there is some loss of energy between sections 1 and 2, and the velocity is not

constant across either of these sections. Consequently, measured values of Q usually fall a

little short of those calculated from equation (3) and it is customary to allow for this

discrepancy by writing:

2g(h1 h 2)

Q Ca 2 2

C is known as the coefficient of the meter, which may be established by experiment. Its

value varies slightly from one meter to another and even for a give meter it may vary

slightly with the discharge, but usually lies within the range of 0.92 to 0.99.

The ideal pressure distribution along the convergent-divergent pipe may be seen from

Bernoullis equation 1 to be given by

For the purpose of calculation and of comparison of experimental results with calculation,

it is convenient to express (hn h1) as a fraction of the velocity head at the throat of the

meter, that is:

hn h1 a 2 a 2

Procedures

1. Open fully the flow control valve (on the right side of the hydraulic bench).

2. Open fully the discharge valve.

3. Switch on the hydraulic bench pump by pressing the black button on the right side of

the hydraulic bench.

4. Let the water flow through the system for a while.

5. Close the discharge valve. All manometer tubes will show the same water level reading.

This is called the total head of the system.

6. Record the total head of the system in the result sheet.

7. Adjust the discharge valve to let the water flow through the venturi meter. Set the water

level of manometer tube C at approximately 10mm.

8. Record the water levels of all manometer tubes in the result sheet (Table 2).

9. Place the PVC tubing into the drain hole. Using the stopwatch, measure and record the

time it takes for the water to reach 5 litres. The volume of the water could be seen on

the left side of the hydraulic bench. Record the time in Table 2.

10. Once it is done, open the drain and let the water flow into the tank.

11. Close the discharge valve slightly to obtain a different flow rate (increase the water

level of manometer tube C by approximately 10mm).

12. Record the water level of the piezometer tubes labeled A and C in Table 3.

13. Place the PVC tubing into the drain hole. Using the stopwatch, measure and record the

time it takes for the water to reach 5 litres. Record the time in Table 3.

14. Once it is done, open the drain and let the water flow into the sump tank.

15. Repeat steps (11) to (14) to obtain an additional 5 sets of water level reading (A and C)

with different flow rates.

16. Switch off the hydraulic bench pump by pressing the red button on the right side of the

hydraulic bench.

17. Close the flow control valve and discharge valve.
