Air flow test rig

1. Foreword

The information is set out as follows: section 1 geves a general description of the equipment.

Sections 2 to 8 give, respectively, accounts of the following tests: flow through a parabolic nozzle; flow

throung a sudden enlargement, with pressure recovery; the velocity profile during turbulent flow through a

pipe, observed; the friction in a smooth pipe, the velocity profile, theoretical; losses in various pipe fittings;

the characteristics of the fan with various forms of impeller. In an Appendix instructions for operating the

equipment are added.

1. General

The Pipe Flow and nozzle Apparatus is designed to enable the flow of gas through nozzles,

pipes and other forms to be studied experimentally at Reynolds Numbers up to 200,000. Air is the medium

and this is drawn through the apparatus by means of a centrifugal fan, the characteristics of which may also

be studied.

The apparatus is shown in Fig.1, the principal component being the length of smooth-walled circular

brass pipe, into which air is drawn at the left and from which it is discharged by the fan at the right. At entry

the air passes through a parabolic nozzle, in which the pressures are observed by an axial probe. The

pressures at one point in the nozzle and several points in the pipe are observed by means of series of

piezometer rings in the wall. The pressures in the pipe cover three regimes: the pressure recovery after the

nozzle, a setting length, and a length in which the flow of air is turbulent but steady for observation of pipe

friction. Following this part, a perspex block is provided in which is mounted a total head tube which, with

the aid of a micromoter screw, may be traversed across the tube. Between this block and the fan it is possible

to insert for investigation venturi tubes and orifices of various forms, which their pressure tappings. The

pressure tappings are all led to an inclined water manometer.

With the parabolic nozzle, which has a throat diameter of 2 in, Reynolds Hmbers of up to 140,000

may be attained a further nozzle having a bore of 3 in is also supplied and is shown in Fig1A. This nozzle is

designed in accordance with the recommendations of British Standard 1042 Part1: 1984 and is known as an

ISA 1932 nozzle. This nozzle imposes less restriction on the flow and henco permits Reynolds Numbers of

up to 200,000.

The losses taking place in various fittings can be found by attaching them to the inlet to the pipe and

fitting the 3 in diameter nozzle to the inlet end of the component under examination. Then for a given rate of

flow as measured by the nozzle the losses are determined by observing the pressure gradient in the pipe.

The dimensions of the nozzele and the pipe, and the positions of the pressure tappings in the nozzle, the

pipe, and the fan are given in Figs.1A and 2.

In what follows the theoretical background is not given in Frank M. White: Fluid Mechanics, 5th Edition,

McGrawHill. The relevant page numbers are given in brackets.

3. VELOCITY PROFILE, OBSERVED

The velocity traverse is situated at a distance of 240.4 in., or 78 pipe diameters, downstream of the

pipe entrance, a distance sufficient the ensure fully developed flow at this point. Velocity head is measured

by means of an open ended total head tube, facing the air flow, of outer diameter 0.035 in and bore 0.020 in.

Let: D = pipe diameter, ft

V = flow velocity, ft/sec

2 = density of air at plane of traverse, lb/ft

B = Atmospheric pressure, in of Hg

H = static depression at traverse, in of water

h2 = total head reading at traverse, in of water

p3 = static pressure at plane of traverse, lb/ft2

R = Gas constant, 96 ft-lb/(lb OK)

Velocity is plotted against radius in Fig.7 and against (radius) 2 in Fig.8. The mean ordinate of the

latter curve, 89.1 ft/sec, gives the mean velocity at this cross section.

This agrees well with the calculated flow volume for the nozzle, 4.47 ft3/sec, and suggests that, for

the latter, a coefficient of discharge of substantially 1.00 is applicable instead of the assumed value of 0.985.

Let: V = velocity at radius r ft, in ft/sec

R = radius of pipe, ft

o = shear stress at the pipe surface, lb/ft

r = any radius, ft

This equation is plotted in Fig.7, and shows good agreement of the observed velocity profile with the

theoretical one.

5. LOSSES IN FITTINGS

The fittings investigated by the method mentioned earlier, and shown diagrammatically in Fig.9,

were :

by bend.

The rate of flow was kept constant throughout these tests by adjusting the diaphragm value on the fan

outlet.

In Fig.10 static depression is plotted against distance from pipe inlet for the five combinations given.

It will be observed that, particularly after the elbows, irregularities occur in the pressure gradient in the earlier

part of the pipe. By the time pressure tapping No.8 is reached, however, the pressure gradient is substantially

uniform, and losses in the various combinations are compared on the basis of readings taken at this point,

with other results given in the first two columns of the table. The values for head loss, expressed as a

proportion of mean velocity head, are given in the third column.

(d) bend + sound absorbing pipe

These results indicate that the losses in a cascaded elbow with while losses in bend are much lower.

The pressure gradient in the brass pipe for fully developed flow at this velocity is: 0.081 in of water

per foot. For the sound absorbing pipe the loss is 0.8110 0.06 = 0.075 in of water per foot. Losses in the

sound absorbing pipe are, therefore, slightly less than in the brass pipe.

It is convenient to express the losses due to each fitting as loss coefficient K, (p.385).
