(Hydrostatic forces on flat and curved surfaces)

15. HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE

15.1 Hydrostatic pressure force on flat surfaces

When a liquid is contained by a surface such as a dam, the side of the ship, a water tank, it is

necessary to calculate the force and its location due to the liquid. Assume that a plane AB is

made up of an infinite number of horizontal strips, each having a width of dy and an area of dA.

The hydrostatic pressure on each strip may be considered constant because the width of the

strip is very small.

For a strip at depth h below the free surface

=y Sin

The total force on the strip is the pressure times the area

dF=y SindA

The total pressure force over the entire AB plane surface is the sum of pressure on all strips.

F =

F=

Total area

distance measured from the x-axis to the centroid ( or the center of gravity ) of

the AB plane.

F = A

TOTAL HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE FORCE ON ANY SUBMERGED PLANE SURFACE

IS EQUAL TO THE PRODUCT OF THE SURFACE AREA AND THE PRESSURE

ACTING AT THE CENTROID OF THE PLANE SURFACE.

Pressure forces acting on a plane surface are distributed over every part of the surface. They are

parallel and act in a direction normal to the surface. These parallel forces can be analytically

replaced by a single resultant force (F

R

).

The resultant force acts normal to the surface. The point on the plane surface at which the

resultant force acts is known as the center of pressure (C.P.). To determine this point, the sum

of moments of all infinitesimal forces must equal to the moment of resultant forces.

With respect to centroid of the plane surface;

Moment of inertia of the plane with respect to its own centroid (center of gravity).

NOTE: THE CENTER OF PRESSURE OF ANY SUBMERGED PLANE SURFACE IS

ALWAYS BELOW THE CENTROID OF THE SURFACE AREA.

Example 15.1.(Hwang et al., 4

th

Edition) A vertical trapezoidal gate with its upper edge

located 5 m below the free surface of water is shown in Figure 15.1. Determine the total

pressure force and center of pressure on the gate.

Example 15.2 (Hwang et al., 4

th

Edition): An inverted semicircular gate is installed at 45

with respect to the free water surface (Figure 15.2).The top of the gate is 5 ft below the water

surface in the vertical direction. Determine the hydrostatic force and the center of pressure on

the gate.

Location of center of pressure:

= 8.90 ft (Inclined distance measured from the water surface to the center of pressure)

Procedure for computing force on a submerged area

1. Identify the point where the angle of inclination of the area intersects the level of the free

surface of liquid.

2. Locate the centroid ( center of gravity ). Use table 2.1.

3. Determine

vertical distance from the level of the free surface to the centroid of the

area.

4. Determine as the inclined distance from the level of the free surface down to the centroid

area;.

5. Calculate total area on which the force is to be determined

6. Calculate resultant force

7. Calculate,

8. Calculate the location of the center of pressure,

9. Sketch the resultant force acting at the center of pressure perpendicular to the area.

15.2 Hydrostatic pressure force on curved surfaces

Hydrostatic force on curved surface can be analyzed best by resolving the total pressure force

on the surface into its horizontal & vertical components.

Static Equilibrium

In the free body diagram of the water contained in ABA equilibrium requires the horizontal

pressure exerted on plane surface AB (the vertical projection of AB) to be equal and opposite

the horizontal pressure component F

H

(the force that gate wall exerts on the fluid).

F

H

=F

AB

Force gate exerts on the liquid

Because the water body in

the container is stationary.

Each of the force

components must the satisfy

the equilibrium conditions.

Horizontal component of the hydrostatic pressure force = Pressure force on the vertical

projection of the surface.

Vertical component of the hydrostatic pressure force = Weight of the entire water

column above the surface extending vertically to the free surface.

Determine the total hydrostatic pressure and center of pressure on the 5 m long, 2 m high

quadrant gate.
