Apparatus:- Redwood viscometer with its accessories such as a flask, ball valve, etc. Heating arrangement, Thermometer, Stopwatch, Oil etc. Theory: It is defined as the property of a fluid which offers resistance to the movement of one layer of fluid over another adjacent layer of fluid. When two layers of fluid, a distance dy apart, move one over the other at different velocities, say u and u+ du as shown in figure, the viscosity together with relative velocity causes a shear acting between the fluid layers. The top layer causes a shear stress on the adjacent lower layer while the lower layer causes a shear stress on the adjacent top layer. This shear stress on the adjacent top layer. This shear stress is proportional to the rate of change of velocity with respect to y. It is denoted by (Tau) Mathematically, du τ dy Figure:-Velocity Variation near a Solid Boundary. Where is the constant of proportionality and is known as the co-efficent of dynamic viscosity or only viscosity, represents the rate of shear strain or rate of shear deformation or velocity gradient.. Thus viscosity is also defined as the shear stress required to produce unit rate of shear strain.

Kinematic viscosity (v): It is defined as the ratio of dynamic viscosity to the density of the fluid. Mathematically, In MKS and SI units, In CGS units,, Stroke. Effect of Temperature on Viscosity: ) The viscosity of both liquids and gases will vary with temperature but in different manner. ) In case of liquids, the viscosity is due to cohesion. When the temperature of liquid increases, the volume of fluid increases and hence the distance between molecules increases with decreases the cohesion. Therefore, the viscosity of liquid decreases with increases in temperature. 3) In case of gases, viscosity is due to molecular momentum exchange. When the temperature of gas increases, kinetic energy of molecules increases and hence molecular momentum exchanges increases. Therefore, the viscosity of gases increases with increases in temperature. Experimental Set-Up: The redwood viscometer consists of vertical cylindrical oil cup with an orifice in the centre of its base. The orifice can be closed by a ball. A hook pointing upward serves as a guide mark for filling the oil. The cylindrical cup is surrounded by the water bath. The water bath maintains the temperature of the oil to be tested at constant temperature. The oil is heated by Figure:- Redwood Viscometer. heating the water bath by means of an immersed electric heater in the water bath; the provision is made for stirring the water, to maintain the uniform temperature in the water bath and to place the thermometer to record the temperature of oil and water bath. The cylinder is 47.65mm in diameter and 88.90mm deep. The orifice is.70mm in diameter and mm in length, this viscometer is used to determine the kinematic viscosity of the oil. From the kinematic viscosity the dynamic viscosity is determined.

Calculation: Sample Calculation for First Reading: Kinematic viscosity of liquid, γ (A x T) (B / T) Significance: Viscosity affects heat generation in bearings, cylinders and gear sets related to oil s internal friction. It governs the sealing effect of oils and the rate of oil consumption, as well as determines the ease with which machines may be started or operated under varying temperature conditions, particularly in cold climates. Not all oils respond in the same way to a given change in temperature. Many oils contain an ability to resist changes in viscosity due to a change in temperature. This property is referred to as the oil's viscosity index or VI. The higher the VI of oil, the less its viscosity is altered by temperature changes. Another factor in the measurement of viscosity is the ability of oil to resist shearing or the "tearing away of one plane of lubricant from another" during the hydrodynamic lubrication function. The benefits of oils with a higher VI are:

16 FLUID MECHANICES LAB:-I Experiment:-03 Determination of stability of floating bodies using ship models. Meta- centre height of ship model. Aim: To determine the stability of floating bodies using ship models. Apparatus: Model of ship, Tank with water, Weight, etc., Theory: Principle of floatation Consider a body is floating in water when the weight of the body is more than the up thrust then the body will sink down in water. But if the weight is equal to the up thrust of the liquid the body will float in the water. The weight of the body is equal to the upward thrust of the liquid on the body. This concept is called as Principle of floating. Figure:-Floating Body. Buoyancy: When a body is immersed in a fluid an upward force is exerted by the fluid on the body. This upward force is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the body and is called the force of buoyancy or buoyancy. Arenumedes Principle: It states that whenever a body is immersed wholly or partly in fluid, the resultant force acting on it, is equally to the difference between the upward pressure of the fluid on its bottom and the downward force due to gravity. Meta-Centre: It is defined as the point about which a body starts oscillating when the body is tilted by a small angle. The meta-centre may also be defined as the point at which the line of action of the force of buoyancy will meet the normal axis of the body when the body is given a small angular displacement. Consider a body floating in a liquid as shown in figure. Let the body is in equilibrium and G is the centre of gravity and B the centre of buoyancy. For equilibrium, both the points lie on the normal axis, which is vertical. Let the body is given a small angular displacement in the clockwise direction as shown in figure. The Figure: - Meta-Centric Height. centre of buoyancy, which is the centre of gravity of the displaced liquid or centre of gravity of the portion of the body sub-merged in liquid, will now be shifted towards right from the normal axis. Let it is at B as shown in figure. The line of action of the force of buoyancy in this new position will intersect the normal axis of the body at some point say M. This point M is called Meta-centre. Meta-Centric Height: The distance between the meta-centre of a floating body and the centre of grvity of the body is called meta-centric height. i.e. MG. Experimental set-up: SRCOE, Lonikand.

Significance: Why to find Metacentre height? It is necessary for the stability of a floating body, if metacentre is above centre of gravity, body will be stable because the restoring couple produced will shift the body to its original position. It is a function of the configuration of a ship and the distribution of its weight. Because it can be determined relatively easily and quickly, either by empirical relations or by direct calculation, it is often relied upon as a principal indication of the stability of the ship and its ability to survive extensive flooding due to underwater damage.

29 FLUID MECHANICES LAB:-I Experiment:-06 Transition of Laminar and turbulent flow through pipes. Aim: - To determine the type of flow by using Reynolds Number. Apparatus: ) Reynolds s experimental arrangement, ) Collecting tank, 3) Stop watch, 4) Scale, Theory: Reynolds carried out experiments to decide limiting values of Reynolds number to quantifiably decide whether the flow is laminar, turbulent or transition. The flows can visualize by passing a streak of dye and observing its motion. Laminar Flow: A flow is said to be laminar when the various fluid particles moves in layer with one layer of fluid living smoothly over on adjacent layer. A laminar flow is one in which the fluid particles moves in layers or laminar with one layer sliding over the other. Therefore there is no exchange of fluid particles from one layer to the other and hence no transfer of later of momentum to be adjacent layers. The particles, in the layer having lower velocity, obstruct the fluid particles in the layer with higher velocity. This obstruction force is called viscous resistance or viscosity. The laminar flow is one in which fluid layers glide over each another. It has low velocity and high viscous resistance. Turbulent Flow: There is a continuous transfer of momentum to adjacent layers. Fluid particles occupy different relative position at different places. It is one in which, the particles get thoroughly mixed on (called turbulence). The turbulent flow has higher velocity. The flow in canals, pipes and rivers is usually turbulent flow. Transition Flow: The transition flow has intermediate properties between the laminar and turbulent flow. In laminar the forces should be considered to calculate the friction loss and in the turbulent flow only the internal forces are considered because the effect of viscous force is negligible as compared to internal forces. Reynolds carried out experiments to decide limiting values of Reynolds number to quantifiably decide whether the flow is laminar, turbulent or transition. If the Reynolds number is less than 000, then it is Laminar Flow figure (a),if the Reynolds number is Figure: - Types of flows. between 000 and 4000 then it is Transition Flow figure (b), If the Reynolds number is greater than 4000, then it is Turbulent figure (c). The flow can be visualized by passing a streak of dye and observing its motion. In the laminar, low velocity flow the streak line is only slightly zig - zag. In the turbulent flow, the dye thoroughly mixes up in the flow. Thus passing through a glass pipe and observing the velocity at different mixing stages of the dye is the principle on which Reynolds apparatus is based. Experimental Setup: The apparatus consist of a glass tube with one end having bell mouth entrance connected to water tank. () The tank is of sufficient capacity to store water.

34 0.079 FLUID MECHANICES LAB:-I Experiment:-07 Minor loss in a pipe system for a given pipe. Aim: To determine minor losses due to pipe fittings such as Expansion, Contraction, Bend, Elbow, etc. Apparatus: A pipe elbow, A sudden contraction pipe, A sudden expansion pipe, A pipe bend, A collecting tank, A stop watch, Scale etc. Theory: When a fluid is flowing (turbulent flow) through a pipe, the fluid experiences some of the energy of fluid is lost. This loss of energy is classified as: ) Major Energy losses: This is due to the friction and it is calculated by the following formulae: a) Darcy-Weisbach formula b) Chezy s formula ) Minor Energy losses: This loss of energy is due to change of velocity of the flowing fluid in magnitude or direction. This is due to a) Sudden expansion of pipe, b) Sudden contraction of pipe, c) Bend in pipe, d) Pipe fittings etc, e) At the entrance of pipe, f) At the exit of a pipe. g) An obstruction in pipe. Major Energy losses: Darcy-Weisbach formula: 4 Where loss of head due to friction, V mean velocity of fluid, f co-efficient of friction which is a function of Reynolds number 6 for < 000, 4 for varying Chezy s Formula: V C from 4000 to Where m hydraulic mean depth, m 4 I loss of head per unit length of pipe, I Chezy s constant.

36 f FLUID MECHANICES LAB:-I Minor Energy losses: This loss of energy is due to change of velocity of the flowing fluid in magnitude or direction. a) Sudden expansion of pipe: Due to sudden change of diameter of the pipe, the liquid flowing from smaller pipe to is not able to follow the abrupt change of the boundary. Thus the flow separates from the boundary and turbulent eddies are formed. The loss of energy takes place due to the formation of these eddies. This is called as loss of energy due to sudden expansion of pipe. Consider a liquid flowing through a pipe which has sudden enlarged form from maller diameter to a larger diameter as shown in figure. Now consider two section - and - before and after the enlargement. Let P pressure intensity at setion - V velocity at section - A area of pipe at section - Where P, V and A are the corresponding values at section-, Now applying Bernoulli s theorem to sectio- and -, h V V he g b) Sudden contraction of pipe: As the liquid flows from larger pipe to smaller pipe, the area of flow goes on decreasing and becomes minimum at section C-C as shown in figure. This section C-C is called Venacontracta, after section C-C a sudden enlargement of the area takes place. The loss of head due to sudden contraction is actually due to sudden enlargement from Vena-contracta to smaller pipe. Let Area of flow at section C-C VC Velocity of flow at section C-C A Area of flow at section - V Velocity of flow at section - hc Loss of head due to sudden contraction. Now, hc Actual loss of head due to enlargement from C-C to section - and is given by equation as () From continuity equation, we have A c A C c Now substuting the above value in equation (), SRCOE, Lonikand.

37 , FLUID MECHANICES LAB:-I k where k If the value ofis assumed to be equal to 0.6, then K Then becomes as k If the value of Cc is not given then the head loss due to contraction is taken as, 0.5 c) Bend in Pipe: Where there is any bend in a pipe, the velocity of flow changes, due to which the separation of the flow from the boundary and also formation of eddies, takes place. Thus the energy is lost. Loss of head in pipe due to bend is expressed as, h b Where hb loss of head due to bend, V velocity of flow, K co-efficient of bend, The value of k depends on, i) Angle of bend, ii) Radius of curvature of bend, iii) Diameter of pipe. d) Pipe fittings: The loss of head in the various pipe fittings such as valves, couplings etc., hf Where V velocity of flow, k co-efficient of pipe fitting. e) An obstruction in pipe: Head loss due to obstruction f) Entrance of a pipe: This is loss of energy which occurs when a liquid enters a pipe which is connected to a large tank or reservoir. This loss is similar to the loss of head due to sudden contraction. This loss depends on the form of entrance. For a sharp edge entrance, this lossis slightly more than a rounded or bell mouthed entrance. In practice the value of loss of head at the entrance of a pipe with sharp cornered entrance is taken as 0.5. g) Exit of pipe: This is the loss of head due to the velocity of liquid at outlet of the pipe which is dissipated either in the form of a free jet or it is lost in the tank or reservoir. This loss is equal to. h) Obstruction in a pipe: Whenever there is an obstruction ina pipe, the loss of energy takes place due to reduction of the area of the cross-section of the pipe at the place where obstruction is present. There is sudden enlargement of the area of flow beyond the obstruction due to which loss of head takes place and is equal to SRCOE, Lonikand. Civil Engineering Department Page 5
