1 PIPE FLOW General Characteristic of Pipe Flow Figure 1 Some of the basic components of a typical pipe system are shown in Figure 1. They include the pipes, the various fitting used to connect the individual pipes to form the desired system, the flowrate control device or valves, and the pumps or turbines that add energy to or remove energy from the fluid. 1

2 (a) Pipe flow (b) Open-channel flow Figure 2 The difference between open-channel flow and the pipe flow is in the fundamental mechanism that drives the flow. For open-channel flow, gravity alone is the driving force the water flows down a hill. For pipe flow, gravity may be important (the pipe need not be horizontal), but the main driving force is likely to be a pressure gradient along the pipe. If the pipe is not full, it is not possible to maintain this pressure difference, P 1 - P 2. 2

3 Laminar and Turbulent Flow Figure 3 The flow of a fluid in a pipe may be laminar flow or it may be turbulent flow. Osborne Reynolds ( ), a British scientist and mathematician, was the first to distinguish the difference between these two classifications of flow by experimental. For small enough flowrates the dye streak ( a streakline) will remain as a well-defined line as it flows along, with only slight blurring due to molecular diffusion of the dye into the surrounding water. It is called laminar flow. 3

4 For intermediate flowrate the dye streak fluctuates in time and space, and intermittent burst of irregular behavior appear along the streak. It is called transitional flow. For large enough flowrates the dye streak almost immediately becomes blurred and spreads across the entire pipe in a random fashion. It is called turbulent flow. To determine the flow conditions, one dimensionless parameter was introduced by Osborne Reynolds, called the Reynolds number, Re. Reynolds number, Re is the ratio of the inertia to viscous effects in the flow. It is written as ; ρvd Re = µ ρ : Density (kg/m 3 ) V : Average velocity in pipe (m/s) D : Diameter of pipe (m) µ : Dynamic viscosity (Ns/m 2 ) The distinction between laminar and turbulent pipe flow and its dependence on an appropriate dimensionless quantity was first appointed out by Osborne Reynolds in

5 The Reynolds number ranges for which laminar, transitional or turbulent pipe flows are obtained cannot be precisely given. The actual transition from laminar to turbulent flow may take place at various Reynolds numbers, depending on how much the flow is disturbed by vibration of pipe, roughness of the entrance region and other factors. For general engineering purpose, the following values are appropriate : 1. The flow in a round pipe is laminar if the Reynolds number is less than approximately The flow in a round pipe is turbulent if the Reynolds numbers is greater that approximately For Reynolds number between these two limits, the flow may switch between laminar and turbulent conditions in an apparently random fashion. 5

6 Entrance Region and Fully Developed Laminar Flow Figure 4 The region of flow near where the fluid enters the pipe is termed the entrance region. The shape of velocity profile in the pipe depends on whether the flow is laminar or turbulent, as does the length of the entrance region, l e 6

7 The dimensionless entrance length, l e D, correlates quite well with the Reynolds number. Typical entrance lengths are given by ; l e D = 0.06(Re) (for laminar flow) and l e D 1 = 4.4( Re)6 (for turbulent flow) for Re=2000, l e = 120 D for 10 4 <Re<10 5, 20 D < l e < 30 D From figure 4, the flow between (2) and (3) is termed fully developed flow. 7

8 Fully Developed Turbulent Flow Figure 5 Turbulent in pipe flow is actually more likely to occur than laminar flow in practical situation. Turbulent flow is a very complex process. 8

9 For pipe flow the value of the Reynolds number must be greater than approximately 4000 for turbulent flow. For flow along a flat plate the transition between laminar and turbulent flow occurs at a Reynolds number of approximately 500,000. Re flat plate = ρvl µ 9
