Question #126597

c) A 50 mm-diameter propeller was installed in a 150 mm-diameter water pipe and the propeller speed was measured for a range of water discharge in the pipe. The water had a density and dynamic viscosity of 1000 kg/m3 and 0.00112 Ns/m2 respectively. The measured results were as follows:

Q (litres/s): 12 28 45 63 95 120 160 180

N (rps): 5 10 15 20 30 40 60 80

Plot the dependence of propeller coefficient against propeller Reynolds number. A geometrically similar propeller with diameter 100 mm was installed in a 300 mm-diameter pipe conveying oil with density 800 kg/m3 and dynamic viscosity 0.007 Ns/m2 . Estimate the discharge in the oil pipe for measured propeller speeds of 40 rps and 90 rps.

Expert's answer

propeller diameter=50 mm, diameter of pipe=150 mm, density of water=1000 kg/m3, and dynamic viscosity=0.00112 ,

Q (litres/s): 12 28 45 63 95 120 160 180

N (rps): 5 10 15 20 30 40 60 80

Now, for taking different flow rate we will find different velocity and then its related Reynold's number

we will put different value of Q and then we get V

V (m/s) : .76 1.78 2.86 4.01 6.05 7.64 10.2 11.46
