CENTRIFUGAL PUMP

INTRODUCTION: – When a certain mass of liquid is made to rotate by an external source, it is thrown away from the centrifugal axis of rotation and a centrifugal head is impressed which enables it to rise to a higher level. ...

RECIPROCATING PUMP

Reciprocating pump is a positive displacement pump. The given pump is single acting single cylinder pump with air vessel. It can be used for less discharge at higher heads. Priming is not required because it is a positive displacement pump. ...

SELF PRIMING PUMP

Self-priming pumps are inherently designed to allow the pump to re-prime itself typically under lift conditions. These pumps are very effective to the end user in that they will eliminate the need for foot valves, vacuum and ejector pumps which ...

KAPLAN TURBINE

INTRODUCTION: Kaplan Turbine is an Axial Flow Reaction Turbine. For Axial Flow Turbines, the water flows through the runner along the direction parallel to the axis of rotation of the runner. Reaction Turbine means that the water at the inlet of ...

FRANCIS TURBINES

Francis Turbine is an Inward Flow Reaction Turbine having Radial Discharge at Outlet. (i.e. = 0). Modern Francis Turbine is a mixed flow type turbine (i.e. Water enters the runner of the turbine in the radial direction and leaves the ...

PELTON TURBINE

INTRODUCTION: – Pelton Wheel or Pelton Turbine is a Tangential Flow Impulse Turbine. This Turbine is used for High Heads and is named after L.A.Pelton. The water strikes the bucket along the tangent of the tangent of the runner. The energy ...

REYNOLDS EXPERIMENT

OBJECTIVE: To perform the Reynolds experiment for determination of different regimes of flow. BASICS: The flow of real fluids can basically occur under two very different regimes namely laminar and turbulent flow. The laminar flow is characterized by fluid particles moving in the ...

VERIFICATION OF BERNOULLI’S THEOREM

OBJECTIVE: To verify Bernoulli’s theorem EQUIPMENT: a)Apparatus for the verification of Bernoulli’s theorem b)measuring tank and c)a stop watch BASICS: Bernoulli’s theorem states that for a stream lined, steady, frictionless and incompressible fluid flow, the sum of pressure head, velocity head and potential head is a constant ...

CHEZY’S CONSTANT AND MANNING’S COEFFICIENT FOR OPEN CHANNELS

OBJECTIVE: i. To find Chezy’s constant for open channels. ii. To find Manning’s Roughness coefficient for the given open channel. iii. To draw the following graphs for two different slopes of channel. iv. Chezy’s constant C vs. Reynolds number. v. Manning’s coefficient n vs. Reynolds ...
