Question: consider a pipeline consisting of three pipes in series connecting...

Question details

Consider a pipeline consisting of three pipes in series connecting two reservoirs as shown below. Data for the three pipes, and elevations of the junction nodes, and water surface elevations in the reservoirs are provided in the tables below. Assume a friction factor of 0.02 for each pipe. Compute the discharge in the pipeline (m3/s) and the pressure at each pipe junction (kPa).

Pipe Length (m) Diameter (cm)
1 2,000

45

2 4,000 35
3 2,500 45
Node Elevation (m)
WSELA 320

ELEV1

290
ELEV2 280
WSELB 288

Pipe 1 WSELA Pipe 2 Pipe 3 ELEVI ELEV2
