Fluid Flow in Steel Pipes

and is measured in metres squared per second (m 2/s). µ ν= ρ

The flow of fluids is a complex process, the study of which is known as fluid dynamics. Fluid transport is affected by the physical properties of the fluid, the type of flow, the pipe dimensions and the properties of the pipe material. There are very few transport problems which can be completely solved by the purely mathematical equations of fluid dynamics. For everyday situations the solutions are dependent on experimentally determined factors, such as the friction factor. Most real problems can be solved using the Darcy formula, which relies on this experimental friction factor.

Density and Viscosity for Water

Physical Properties of Fluids

Velocity of Fluid

The properties relevant to fluid flow are summarized below.

The mean velocity of a fluid is given by:

Density: This is the mass per unit volume of the fluid and is generally measured in kg/m 3. Another commonly used term is specific gravity. This is in fact a relative density, comparing the density of a fluid at a given temperature to that of water at the same temperature. S=

ν= kinematic viscosity (m 2/s) µ = absolute viscosity (Pa s or Ns/m 2) ρ = density (kg/m 3)

S = specific gravity (dimensionless) ρ = density of fluid (kg/m 3) ρ water = density of water (kg/m 3) = 1000 at 10° C Viscosity: This describes the ease with which a fluid flows. A substance like treacle has a high viscosity, while water has a much lower value. Gases, such as air, have a still lower viscosity. The viscosity of a fluid can be described in two ways. a) Absolute (or dynamic) viscosity: This is a measure of a fluid's resistance to internal deformation. It is expressed in pascal seconds (Pa s) or newton seconds per square metre (Ns/m 2). [1Pas = 1 Ns/m 2] b) Kinematic viscosity: This is the ratio of the absolute viscosity to the density 5.02

Types of Fluid Flow

Reynolds Number

When a fluid moves through a pipe two distinct types of flow are possible, laminar and turbulent. Laminar flow occurs in fluids moving with small average velocities and turbulent flow becomes apparent as the velocity is increased above a critical velocity. In laminar flow the fluid particles move along the length of the pipe in a very orderly fashion, with little or no sideways motion across the width of the pipe. Turbulent flow is characterised by random, disorganised motion of the particles, from side to side across the pipe as well as along its length. There will, however, always be a layer of laminar flow at the pipe wall - the socalled 'boundary layer'.

A useful factor in determining which type of flow is involved is the Reynolds number. This is the ratio of the dynamic forces of mass flow to the shear resistance due to fluid viscosity and is given by the following formula. vd i ν Re = Reynolds number (dimensionless)

Re =

d i = pipe inside diameter (m) v = velocity of fluid (m/s) ν = kinematic viscosity (m 2/s)

In general for a fluid like water when the Reynolds number is less than 2000 the flow is laminar. The flow is turbulent for Reynolds numbers above 4000. In between these two values (2000100mm

Water Flow in Straight Pipes - Pressure Loss The following tables (Figs. 5.08-5.10) relate a pressure loss per unit length (in pascals) to the volume flow rate in the pipe. The correction tables which precede them allow compensation for rust and a higher temperature. The value read from the flow tables is multiplied by the appropriate factor from the correction tables.

Example The pressure drop for water at 10°C, flowing at 1 x 10 -3 m 3/s through heavy black 1 1/ 2 " (DN40) pipe, can be read from Fig. 5.08 as 220 Pa/m. However if this pipe were rusted we would need to apply a correction factor. As the nominal pipe size required is not actually listed in Fig. 5.06 we use the next size up, 2" (DN 50). Our pressure loss is about 200 Pa so we read off a correction factor of 3.3. We multiply our original pressure loss by this factor to find the loss for rusted pipes. 220 x 3.3 gives us 726 Pa/m. For new pipes the pressure loss is 220 Pa/m, but for rusted pipes it would be 726 Pa/m.

the diverging junction. We read its basic ζ - value from table 2 as 0.5. Then we add a factor for a 90° elbow which is 0.7 So we have ζ TOTAL = 0.6 + 0.7 = 1.3 The pressure loss is calculated from : ∆p = ζ ρ v 2 2

Pipe losses The total amount of straight pipe in the system is as follows: 3m of 2" pipe 2m of 1 1/4" pipe From Fig. 5.08 we read off the following values for pressure loss per metre: 2" pipe 65Pa/m 460 Pa/m 1 1/4" pipe So the total pressue loss due to straight pipe is ∆p pi = 3x65 + 2x460 = 1115 Pa Fitting losses We need to split the fitting losses into two sections, one for the 2" pipe fittings and the other for the1 1/4" pipe fittings. Reductions or enlargements, connecting pipes of different diameters, are included in the section for the smaller pipe. So here the reduction is included in the 1 1/4" fittings.

)

The internal pipe diameters are (pipe diameter Fig. 5.14 ) For 2" pipe d i = 51.3 x 10 -3 m 1 1 /4 " pipe d i = 34.4 x 10 -3 m First calculate the flow velocities.

π x (34.4x10 -3) 2 4 = 0.45 π x (51.3x10 -3) 2 4

This is between the values for ζ=0.40 and ζ=0.25, so we take the larger value. ζ TOTAL = 0.6 + 0.4 =1.0 The pressure loss here is ∆p = ζ ρ v 2 = 1.0 x (1000) x (1.08) 2 2 2 = 583 Pa So the total pressure loss due to fittings is ∆p fi = 583 +99 = 682 Pa Total Loss The total pressure loss will be ∆p pi + ∆p fi = 1115 + 682 = 1797 Pa The total pressure loss is 1.8 kPa

Example 2

So

Consider part of a system of 2 1/2" (DN65) heavy grade steel pipe as shown below. Water is flowing at a rate of 1 litre per second at 10°C.

Re = 0.28 x (0.067) 1.3x10 -6

= 14430 The roughness is given in Fig. 5.13 as 6.9x10 -4 and we combine this with our Reynolds number in the Moody diagram to find the friction factor (f).

f = 0.0075 5m

l ef = 2.4 x 0.067 4 x 0.0075

5m

5m

So the equivalent length is:

5m

Fig. 5.12

Let's approach this problem from the perspective of equivalent lengths. Pipe: There is 25m of straight pipe. Fittings: There are four 90° elbow fittings 2 1/2" (DN65), which each have a ζ of 0.6. So, ζ TOTAL = 2.4 To find the equivalent length of these fittings we use

3

= 5.36 Now we add this equivalent length to the real length of straight pipe to get an effective length. Effective length = 25m + 5.36m = 30.36m The pressure loss per unit length for 65mm pipe with a flow rate of 1l/s is 20Pa/m. So we multiply this value by our effective length to get a total pressure loss.

4

5

∆p TOTAL = 20•30.36 = 607.2 Pa So we lose 607.2 Pa of pressure in this part of the system.

l ef = ζd i 4f

6

We need to find the Reynolds number to use this formula. Re = vd i ν

Valves - Pressure Loss Flow rate/ Flow factor The flow value or k v factor is a convenient means of calculating flow rates in hydraulics. It allows for all internal resistances and for practical purposes is regarded as reliable.

Example 2 Part1 What is the k v factor for a 1 1/4 " water pipeline with a flow of 300 litres/min, an inlet pressure of 0.5 bar and an outlet pressure of 0 bar? Part 2 If a valve has to be fitted and the minimum acceptable flow rate in the pipline is 250 litres/min, which type of valve should be used?

Fig. 5.18

Given Q =250 litres/min ρ = 1kg/dm 3 ∆p = p 1 – p 2 = 0.5 –0 = 0.5 kg/cm 2 kvt = ?

Part 3 Having established which type of valve should be used, what will be the true flow rate of the system?

1 0 .5

kvt = 250

kvt = 354 Solution to part 1 Calculate the k v for the pipeline (k vp)

The k v factor for the valve (k vv) can now be established by subtracting the k v factor for the pipline (k vp ) from the k v factor for the total system (k vt). For this purpose, the formula for calculating flow factors in series should be used, which is 1 k vx thus

Fig. 5.17

Given

Q ρ ∆p k vp

= 300 litres/min = 1 kg/dm3 = p1 – p2 = 0.5 – 0 = 0.5 kg/cm2 = ?

kvp = Q = 300

ρ ∆p 1 0.5

= 424

Solution to part 2 First it is necessary to calculate the k v factor for the total system (k vt).

We find the reciprocal of k vv by subtracting these two values. 8.5 x10 -6 - 6 x10 -6 = 2.5 x10 -6

The value for the flow factor corresponding to 2.5×10 -6 can also be read from the nomograph. Thus, k vv = 640

The valve used must therefore be one with a minimum k v100 factor of 640. A typical value for a ball valve, which could be used in this example is k vv = 800 (k v valves are supplied by valve manufacturers).

Compressible Fluids Fluids such as air and steam are compressible. A force acting on them may decrease the fluid volume (increasing its density) rather than causing movement of the fluid. This density change will lead to a pressure drop. If this drop in pressure is less than 10% of the inlet pressure we can treat the fluid as incompressible. If this is not the case then new equations must be used to describe the flow depending on the type of fluid and the surrounding conditions.

3. Connect the point on reference line F to the working pressure (line E). Extend this line to line G. 4. Read the value of the pressure drop at this intesection point.

Example The problem below is solved by the dotted lines on the nomogram. Pipe length = 300m Free air flow = 175 litres/second Pipe inner diameter = 90mm Working pressure = 9 bar

3

Pipe Losses For compressed air the pressure drop can be found from the following equation

Following the steps above we draw the 3 lines shown on the nomogram. The final line intersects line G at approximately 0.04. So the pressure drop is 0.04 bar.

4

∆p = 1.6 x 10 8 x V 1.85 x L d5 x P

A general rule is that the velocity of compressed air must be less than 6 m/s . Using this restriction we find maximum flow values through medium grade steel as given in Fig. 5.21 .

∆p= pressure drop (bar) V = free air flow (m 3/s) L = pipe length (m) d = inside pipe diameter (mm) P = initial pressure (bar) Values can be inserted directly into this formula, or the nomogram (Fig. 5.22) can be used. The nomogram gives the free air flow in litres/second and the pressure drop in bar. Conversions to cubic metres per second and pascal are given below. m 3/s = l/s x 10 -3 bar = 10 5 Pa To use the nomogram, follow these steps: 1. Connect pipe length (line A) to free air flow (line B). Extend this line to the first reference line (line C).

Example A compressed air system where air flows at 0.2m 3/s has a working pressure of 10 bar (10 x10 5Pa) and consists of 20m of 1 1/2" (DN 40) straight pipe with the following fittings: 2 x 90° elbow 1 x tee: air flows through the branch of the tee

l ef = 2 x 0.6 + 2.4 = 3.6m Adding the length of straight pipe to this value gives the effectve length of the system. 3.6 + 20 = 23.6 Now we can use the nomogram (Fig. 5.22) to find the pressure drop.

Steam Steam is another compressible fluid which behaves in a similar way to compressed air. Two important factors to remember when laying steam piping are that temperature changes can lead to expansion or contraction, which must not put any excessive stress on the system, and that no water should be allowed to collect anywhere in the system. Each time the system is started from cold there will be water of condensation to dispose of. Another consideration is that if the velocity exceeds about 60 m/s the system may become intolerably noisy. The volume flow rate corresponding to a velocity of 60m/s is given below for various pipe sizes.

Water Hammer Water hammer, or surge pressure, is a term used to describe dynamic surges caused by pressure changes in a piping system. They occur whenever there is a deviation from the steady state, i.e. when the velocity of the fluid is increased or decreased, and may be transient or oscillating. Waves of positive or negative pressure may be generated by any of the following: 1. opening or closing of a valve 2. pump start up or shut down 3. change in pump or turbine speed 4. wave action in a feed tank 5. entrapped air

The pressure waves travel along at speeds limited by the speed of sound in the medium, causing the pipe to expand and contract. The energy carried by the wave is dissipated and the waves are progressively damped. (see Figure ?) The pressure excess due to water hammer must be considered in addition to the hydrostatic load, and this total pressure must be sustainable by the pipng system. In the case of oscillatory surge pressures extreme caution is needed as surging at the harmonic frequency of the system could lead to catastrophic damage.

Wavelength Fig. 5.28

Pressure Change

Damped pressure wave The maximum positive or negative addition of pressure due to surging is a function of fluid velocity, bulk modulus of elasticity of the fluid, pipe dimensions and the modulus of elasticity of the pipe material. It can be calculated using the following steps.

E = modulus of elasticity of pipe wall (Pa) d i = pipe inner diameter (mm) t = pipe wall thickness (mm)

Step 1 Determine the velocity of the pressure wave Vw =

K ρ x (1 +

K x di ) txE

where V w = velocity of pressure wave (m/s) K = bulk modulus of elasticity of fluid (Pa) ρ = fluid density (kg/m 3) 5.30

Step 2 Calculate maximum pressure change due to surging. ∆p = Vw x ∆v x ρ x 10 -5 where ∆p = maximum pressure change (bar) V w = velocity of pressure wave (m/s) (see step 1) ∆v = change in fluid velocity (m/s) = (v 1-v 2) v1 = velocity of fluid before change (m/s) v2 = velocity of fluid after change ( m/s) ρ = density of fluid (kg/m 3) NB. All pressure rises induced by a flow reduction will have a corresponding reflected pressure drop (vacuum). If this exceeds the expected static minimum operation pressure it must not exceed the collapsing pressure for safe operation of the system.

Step 3 Calculate the maximum and minimum total pressures p max = P + ∆p p min = P – ∆p where p max = maximum total pressure (bar)

withstand this water hamer pressure instantaneously. As long as the calculated maximum total pressure due to water hammer is within the maximum allowable pressure for a system the effects of water hammer will not be serious. The exception to this rule is when the pressure surges are oscillatory (e.g. from a positive displacement pump). In this case the system must be treated as if a load equal to the maximum total pressure, P max , exists throughout the lifetime of the pipe. If the total pressure due to water hammer does not fall within these limits an increase in pipe diameter should be considered, or measures should be taken to reduce surge occurance (i.e. actuated valves, surge tanks, slow start-up pumps). When using actuated valves it is common to design valves with closure times greater than the critical period T c to reduce water hammer. The critical period is the time taken by the pressure wave to complete one circuit of the pipeline.

Step 4 Compare the maximum total pressure due to water hammer, calculated in step 3, with the maximum allowable pressure in the system. The maximum allowable pressure is determined by the pressure rating of the weakest component in a system. As most surges last for a matter of seconds the system need only GEORGEFISCHER…

Example Water piping from a storage tank is connected to a primary shut-off valve, which is hydraulically actuated with an electrical remote control. The water flow rate is Q= 10m 3/h. The working pressure is 6 bar. The pipe details are: material medium grade steel Nom. size 100 inner diameter 105 mm wall thickness 4.5 mm pipeline length 500m operating temp. 40°C Modulus of elasticity E = 200 x 10 9 other information: water density bulk modulus of water

ρ = 1000 kg/m 3 K = 2.05 GPa

Step 3 Find maximum pressure P max = 6 + 4.12 = 10.12 bar ∆p < p so the minimum pressure is positive. If the minimum pressure was negative (i.e. ∆p > p), then we would need to ensure that all the components in the system could withstand the negative pressure. Step 4 The maximum total pressure due to water hammer is 10.12 bar. If this value is less than the maximum allowable instantaneous pressure in our system then the effects of water hammer are acceptable. If it is not, adjustments need to be made to pipe dimensions, or valve closing time, to reduce water hammer.
