Turbine - Definition and Types of Turbines

It is a device which converts mechanical energy into electrical energy or hydraulic energy into electrical energy. Turbines can also be termed as machines extracting energy from fluids. Water driven tubes are used primarily for the development of hydro-electric energy. There can be two basic types of hydraulic turbines. In impulse turbines a free jet of water strikes the

To Calibrate a Pressure Gauge Using a Dead Weight Pressure Gauge Calibrator

A length of tube was connected to the calibrator drain and laid into the channel to prevent spillage of water on the bench top. The calibrator was leveled by the adjusting feel whilst observing the spirit level.

Water Hammer - Definition and Factors Affecting it

If water is flowing through a channel and it is stopped abruptly i.e its momentum is broken so a pressure surge or wave results, this effect produced is called water hammer or hammer blow. This effect can be produced in any fluid. When a flow is stopped backwater effect is produced in which a wave of water moves against the flowing water. It is caused by a pressure or a

Experimental study of Laminar, Transitional and Turbulent Flow

The type of flow in which the particles move in a straight line in the form of a thin parallel sheets is known as the Laminar flow. Laminar flow denotes a steady condition where all stream lines follow parallel paths. Under this condition, the dye

Hydraulic Jump Experiment

Hydraulic jumps are very efficient in dissipating the energy of the flow to make it more controllable & less erosive. In engineering practice, the hydraulic jump frequently appears downstream from overflow structures (spillways), or under flow structures (sluice gates), where velocities are height. A hydraulic jump is formed when liquid at high velocity discharges into

Experiment - Various Parts of Hydraulic Bench

Hydraulic bench is a very useful apparatus in hydraulics and fluid mechanics. It is involved in majority of experiments to be conducted e.g. To find the value of the co-efficient of velocity ‘Cv’, coefficient of discharge ‘Cd’, to study the characteristics of flow over notches, to find metacentric height, to find head losses through pipes, to verify Bernoulli’s theorem

To Determine The Metacentric Height Of a Ship Model

The intersection of the lines passing through the original center of buoyancy and center of gravity of the body and the vertical line through the new center of buoyancy.

Calibration Of Rectangular Notch

A Notch is regarded as an orifice with water level below its upper edge. Notch is made of a metallic plate and its use is to measure the discharge of liquids. These are used for measuring the flow of water from a vessel or tank with no pressure flow. Since the top edge of the notch above the liquid level serves no purpose therefore a notch may have only bottom edge

Calculation, Effects & Applications of Hydraulic Jump

Hydraulic jump is the phenomenon of open channels. Before defining the hydraulic jump it is necessary to describe the terms "super critical flow" and "sub critical flow" in order to clearly understand that "what is hydraulic jump" Hydraulic jump usually occurs in super critical flow. In order to describe the super critical flow and sub critical flow, there is need to define the

An Experiment on Hydraulic Jump

Hydraulic jumps are very efficient in dissipating the energy of the flow to make it more controllable & les erosive. In engineering practice, the hydraulic jump frequently appears downstream from

Methods and Approaches to DA (Dimensional Analysis)

The law of conservation of dimensions can be applied to arrange the variables or parameters that are important in a given problem into a set of dimensionless groups. The original set of (dimensional) variables can then be replaced by the resulting set of dimensionless groups, and these can be used to completely define the system behavior.

Flood Runoff Analysis from Snowmelt & Envelope Curves

Run-off analysis taking into account physical processes have been able to be carried out due to sophisticated computers. River basin is formed by a flow in a river channel, an infiltration flow and a groundwater flow that have different hydraulic characters. The Bureau of Reclamation has used a method called, "Snow Compaction Method for the Analyses of Runoff from
