Lubricating oil, with a relative density of 0.79, flows around a 90¨¬ bend. The pipe diameter is 0.45m, and the oil has a pressure head of 7m and the flow is 1.7m3/s. Find the force exerted by the oil on the bend.
Oil density = 0.79 X 103
Volumetric mass flow rate = 1.7 m3/s
Pipe diameter = 0.45 m
Pressure head (¥÷) = 7m
Oil mass flow=density*Vol/sec
Oil velocity in the pipe:
vel of oil=10.69m/s
Force(F1) on the bend due to oil flow:
F1=Oil mass flow*Oil velocity
F1=14356kgm/s^2 or 14.356kN
Force(F2) due to oil pressure:
F2=8627kgm/s^2 or 8.627kN
Total Force(Ft) acting on elbow:
Thanks for taking a look.
