Part A
1. When the flow through pipe takes place, there comes a lot of loss of head due to so many different
reasons. The loss of head which takes place due to friction between fluid and pipe surface is called
major loss.
2. Boundary layer can be represented by so many different ways. It can be shown using mass flow
rate deficit, momentum deficit or energy deficit. Correspondingly they are called displacement
thickness, momentum thickness and energy thickness.
3. Hydraulic efficiency of turbine is defined as the ratio of the power developed in the runner to
the hydraulic power supplied.
Power developed by the runner
=
Hydraulic input
4. Draft tube is employed in the turbines to channel out the flow once it has already passed through
the turbine blades. It is a gradually expanding tube connects the runner exit to the tailrace. It helps
in the safe and efficiency passage of the used water after turbine.
5. When the penstock is not fully filled, it may contain some cavities at some places, and when the
turbine is running, it may generate less energy than required as per the expectation. To avoid this
first the pipe carrying water to the turbine is filled before switching on the turbine. This process
is called priming.

Part B
6. (a) (i) Loss of head due to sudden contraction:
Let us consider the situation of pipe carrying liquid whose cross sectional area at a certain
section reduces abruptly from 1 to 2 as shown in the picture.

## Flow through sudden contraction

We consider the two sections before and after the contraction. Due to sudden contraction
the streamlines converge to a smaller cross section as per the solid boundary. In between

there comes the minimum area called Vena Contracta. After this only stream lines expand
to fill the downstream pipe.
We shall denote the velocity, area and pressure with , and with the appropriate
subscript denoting the location. Apart from these there will be two more parameters playing
role here:
= Loss of head due to sudden contraction
Actually = Loss of head up to Vena-Contracta + Loss of head due to sudden enlargement
beyond Vena-Contracta, but since loss up to Vena-Contracta is very small and may be
neglected.
So from the idea of sudden enlargement:
( 2 )2

2g
Here we have taken the initial velocity as the velocity at the contracta. From the continuity
equation:

Here is the coefficient of contraction. Now putting the velocity at the contracta in

Generally the value of K varies from 0.375 to 0.5. If value or K is not given, then the
head loss due to friction is taken as

1 = 15, 1 = 6, 2 = 22.5, 2 = 16, = 6, = 0.02

As per the situation there will be some losses in the available head. They are as below:
a. Loss due to entrance in the pipe 1
b. Loss due friction in pipe 1
c. Loss due to sudden enlargement in pipe 1
d. Loss due to friction in pipe 2
e. Loss due to exit again
Head loss at the entrance in the pipe 1:

Head loss due to enlargement at the pipe junction:

Head loss due to friction in pipe 2:
1 22 0.04 16 (0.444 1 )2
2 = = = 0.0286 12

Head loss due to exit at the pipe 2:

The situation in the first tank is denoted by subscript A and in the second tank is being
depicted by subscript B. The static pressure both the tanks are same and velocity in both
can be assumed to be zero. What differs is the head datum difference. So:

There will be two sudden falls in the HGL and entire head will be lost at the end.

(b) (i) Darcys equation for the head loss in the pipe flow due to friction:
When the flow through pipe takes place, there takes place the losses due to friction. The
losses due to friction depend upon three factors primarily.

## 1. Length of the pipe, ( )

2. The wetted perimeter, () and
3. The velocity factor,

## Now applying Bernoulli's equation between these two stations:

2g 2g
Since there is no change in area and the fluid is incompressible, there will be no change in
velocity as well as in the elevation due to pipe being horizontal.

Now let be the frictional resistance per unit area at unit velocity with the consideration
of its index. Then the total frictional resistance will be given by:

Here is the wetted perimeter of the pipe inner surface and is the length of pipe under
consideration. Under the fully developed condition, net force acting on the fluid element
will be zero.

Above is called Darcy-Weisbach equation and is termed as the Darcy coefficient of
friction. Sometimes the equation is also written as:

=

where 1 is the Darcys friction factor.
(b) (ii) The given data are:

Using Darcy-Weisbach formula:
Reynolds number:

7. (a) (i) Francis Turbine: A Francis turbine typically looks like below:

Various parts of the turbine are as shown in the picture. First the water from a high head
passes through the penstock and reaches to the turbine runner area. From penstock it goes
to the scroll duct which is a contracting area conduit type structure. The main purpose of
the scroll casing is to distribute the water flow almost evenly to the entire runner side area.
Water from scroll casing passes to the stay vanes which guide the flow to the guide vanes
at an appropriate angle. These stay vanes are usually half in number compared to guide
vanes. Guide vanes guide the flow to the runner vanes which creates a reaction on the vane

## blades. As a result of it runner starts rotating and mechanical energy is generated by

exchanging the potential and kinetic energy of the fluid.
After the flow has passed through entire process, it is safely drafted to the tailrace of the
reservoir though a draft tube which is expanding area duct as shown in the picture.

Hydraulic energy is converted to mechanical energy in the runner and then there is
mechanical loss and final energy output is available on the shaft. Nothing has been
mentioned about the volume efficiency, so we can take it to be 100%. Mechanical losses
are 3% so mechanical efficiency can be taken as 97%. What is not known is hydraulic
efficiency.
