So if the inlet fluid condition is known, we can select the nozzle as below: 1. equation which says that for a nozzle spraying into a room at a pressure. Point A represents a steam in superheated region at pressure P1. 9. are normally obtained by using Mollier Chart. The flow of the fluid is assumed to be steady flow. is described quantitatively by Bernoulli’s equation, named after its discoverer, the Swiss scientist Daniel Bernoulli (1700–1782). Bernoulli’s equation states that for an incompressible, frictionless fluid, the following sum is constant: P + 1 2ρv2 + ρgh = constant where P is the Area-Velocity Relation The main design parameter for nozzles and diﬀusers is the change of cross section, and we ask how ﬂow properties, in particular velocity and pressure, change with the cross section. (M) is less than 1. i.e. A = Area of the pipe. By using this convergent nozzle, the flow of the fluid can be increased to sonic velocity. d = Diameter of nozzle at outlet. For a nozzle, velocity of the fluid should increase continuously from entrance to exit. Let us consider the following data from above figure. The convergent-divergent nozzle is used for convert sub-sonic flow into super-sonic flow. A nozzle is a pipe with different diameters , which used to change the velocity of liquid. 3. Plagiarism Prevention 5. But in actual case, the friction losses occur. Thus we see that condensation does not start immediately after S is passed, no drops of liquid are formed until some state B is reached, where condensation suddenly occurs, a phenomenon sometimes called Condensation Shock. v = Velocity of flow at outlet of nozzle. This limit line is known as Wilson’s line. For orifices and nozzles installed in horizontal pipework where it can be assumed that there is no elevation change, head loss and flow rate may be calculated as follows: \displaystyle Q = C_{d}A_{o}Y\sqrt{\frac{2 \Delta P}{\rho\left(1-\beta^{4}\right)}}, \displaystyle Q = C_{d}A_{o}Y\sqrt{\frac{2g\Delta h}{\left(1-\beta^{4}\right)}}, \displaystyle \Delta P = \frac{1}{2} \rho \left(1-\beta^{4}\right) \left( \frac{Q}{C_{d}A_{o}Y}\right)^{2}, \displaystyle \Delta h = \frac{1}{2g} \left(1-\beta^{4}\right) \left( \frac{Q}{C_{d}A_{o}Y}\right)^{2}. 1. Both situations involve an increase in irreversibility’s and loss of efficiency. The SI unit for flow rate is m 3 /s, but a number of other units for Q are in common use. That means velocity of fluid decreases with increasing pressure. 19.8. Nozzles 5 . If the exit pressure is more than the designed pressure but less than critical pressure, the flow is not isentropic in the divergent part and it is accompanied by highly irreversible phenomena known as shocks. It is best for the expansion in the nozzle to occur to just the right (designed) discharge pressure. Thermodynamic and mechanical properties are uniform across planes normal to the axis of a duct. Corresponding to the fluids used, the nozzles are called steam nozzles, water nozzles and gas nozzles. The change in area and curvature along the axis of the duct are gradual. When discharge from a nozzle is actually measured it is found to be from 2 to 5% greater than the calculated discharge. For orifices and nozzles installed in vertical piping, with elevation change So when a fluid flows through a nozzle, its velocity increases continuously and pressure decreases continuously. Of course the flow should be computed for the throat section since this is where it is limited. There is no work-done in nozzle therefore W = 0. If the flow is subsonic then (M < 1) and the term multiplying the velocity change is positive (1 - M^2 > 0). A 2 = outlet area (m 2) A c = throat area (m 2) n = index of expansion. Disclaimer 8. International Standards Organistion method as described in ISO 5167-2: \displaystyle Y = 1 - \left(0.351 + 0.256 \beta^{4} + 0.93 \beta^{8} \right) \left( 1 - \left(\frac{P_{s,2}}{P_{s,1}}\right)^{1/k} \right), Calculation of Flow through Nozzles and Orifices, discharge coefficients for nozzles and orifices, Flow Measurement Engineering Handbook, R. W. Miller, Albright's Chemical Engineering Handbook, L. Albright, Instrument Engineers' Handbook, Vol. (iii) When exit pressure P2 is equal to critical pressure, the nozzle operates with maximum mass flow rate and the pressure distribution is shown by curve (III). So in a diffuser, velocity of the fluid decreases continuously and pressure increases continuously. The nozzle increases the kinetic energy of the water and directs the water in the form of the jet. It is defined as: \displaystyle Y = \frac{C_{d,c}}{C_{d,i}}. 2. 4. Content Filtration 6. Significant changes in velocity and pressure result in density variations throughout a flow field 4. In applying the above equation, when the ratio p 2 /p 1 approximately equals 0.53, under normal temperature conditions at sea level, the escape velocity v 2 will be equal to the velocity of sound. The flow of steam through nozzle is assumed to be isentropic. As this lower pressure stream emerges into the higher pressure discharge region, there is a sudden increase in pressure, an act that sets up compression pressure waves, much stronger than sound waves. (1) To convert pressure energy and thermal energy into kinetic energy and. When at point s, due to the rapid expansion, instead of condensation commencing, the steam continues to behave as a super-heated vapour down to point B, at same intermediate pressure P2. In the nozzle, the velocity of the fluid is so high that there is hardly any time available for fluid to exchange heat with the surroundings. As a result we now have two new variables we must solve for: T & ρ We need 2 new equations. The mass low rate increases as pressure P2 is reduced as shown in Fig. 2. The initial conditions are kept constant and exit pressure P2 is reduced gradually from the initial pressure P1 by a valve. Injectors for pumping feed water to boilers. H = total head at the inlet of the pipe. Where the point downstream of the orifice is sufficiently far away that the fluid has returned to normal full pipe velocity profile. \beta, the ratio of orifice to pipe diameter which is defined as: \displaystyle \beta = \frac{D_{o}}{D_{1}}. Report a Violation 11. v 2 = velocity out of the jet (m/s). Figure 19.5 shows the actual expansion of steam through nozzle. For a horizontal nozzle, Δ PE = 0 . The increase in velocity comes at the expense of fluid pressure resulting in low pressures in the Vena Contracta. So only in convergent-divergent nozzle, the sub-sonic flow is converted into super-sonic flow. The section where cross-sectional area is minimum is called ‘throat’ of the nozzle. Uploader Agreement. Privacy Policy 9. This equation shows that, if the pressure thrust term is zero, thrust is directly proportional to throat area, A*, … 1. Refer Fig. This is due to low initial velocity. In case (IV), pressure is critical at throat and exit pressure Pe is design pressure. This state is called as ‘chocked flow’ or the nozzle is said to be ‘chocked’. when the flow is sub-sonic), the match no. Turbo machines like steam turbines, water turbines and gas turbines produce power by utilising the kinetic energy of the jets produced by passing high pressure steam, water and gas through the devices called nozzles. Calendar found that the Wilson line approximately follows the 97% dryness line. Velocity Term Pressure Term pe/po p a /p o =0.01 • Velocity term always provides thrust (+) • Pressure term can increase or decrease thrust A e /A t = Converging nozzle … Nozzles are used in steam turbines, gas turbines, water turbines and in jet engines, Jet propulsion. Super Saturated or Metastable Flow through Nozzle: The ideal case of isentropic expansion of a superheated vapour to a state in the wet region is shown in T-S diagram and h-s diagram of Fig. But from the first law of thermodynamics, The change in Kinetic energy for unit mass is-. In extreme cases this may lead to cavitation when the local pressure is less than the vapour pressure of a liquid. At this point, the random kinetic energy of the molecules has fallen to a level which is insufficient to overcome the attractive forces of the molecules and some of the slow moving molecules start to form tiny droplets to condensate. Phenomenon in Nozzles Operating Off the Design Pressure Ratio: Consider a convergent nozzle as shown in Fig. This expansion is irreversible and gives rise to pressure oscillations as shown by curve (IV). Thrust Equation, Nozzles and Definitions Prepared by Arif Karabeyoglu Mechanical Engineering KOC University Fall 2019 MECH427/527 and AA 284a ... – Velocity at the exit plane is not parallel to the nozzle axis, because of the conical flow field. The following equations are given for the Bingham Plastic and Power Law models. Account Disable 12. Yis typically determined empirically and can be calculated using one of the formulas below. 10. The field units used here are: OD= outside diameter (in),ID= inside diameter (in),L=length (ft),? The formula of Peripheral velocity: In the case of Pelton Wheel, the velocity at the inlet (U1) is equal to the velocity of the outlet (U2) Calculation of Power: \Delta z = z_{1} - z_{2}, the following head loss and flow rate equations may be used: \displaystyle Q = C_{d}A_{o}Y\sqrt{\frac{2\left(\Delta P + \rho g \Delta z \right)}{\rho\left(1-\beta^{4}\right)}}, \displaystyle Q = C_{d}A_{o}Y\sqrt{\frac{2g\left(\Delta h+\Delta z \right)}{\left(1-\beta^{4}\right)}}, \displaystyle \Delta P = \frac{1}{2} \rho \left(1-\beta^{4}\right) \left( \frac{Q}{C_{d}A_{o}Y}\right)^{2} - \rho g \Delta z, \displaystyle \Delta h = \frac{1}{2g} \left(1-\beta^{4}\right) \left( \frac{Q}{C_{d}A_{o}Y}\right)^{2} - \Delta z. Since the collapse of the metastable state has been observed not in a converging nozzle, but always, in the diverging part of the De-Laval nozzle, one is probably safe assuming that the super-saturation, if it occurs at all, will persist to some point beyond throat. In Mollier Chart, 1 -t- 2′ is the actual expansion of steam through nozzle. When a steadily flowing fluid is decelerated in a duct causing rise in pressure along the stream, then the duct is called a diffuser. Difference in the temperature at point C and temperature at point B is known as degree of under-cooling or difference in saturation temperatures at pressure P2 end PB is degree of under-cooling. In equilibrium flow, the energy released by condensing the molecules is provided for increasing the kinetic energy of the steam as it passes through the nozzle. Note! In the case of a simple concentric restriction orifice the fluid is accelerated as it passes through the orifice, reaching the maximum velocity a short distance downstream of the orifice itself (the Vena Contracta). Terms of Service 7. Super Saturated or Metastable Flow 10. There is generally a limit to super-saturation. D = Diameter of the pipe. Diffusers are used in ram-jet engines to increase the pressure of incoming fresh-air. These relationships all utilise the parameter When the velocity of fluid is less than sonic velocity (i.e. (2) To direct the fluid jet at the specific angle known as nozzle angle. (i) When pressure P2 is equal to Pt, there is no decrease in pressure and therefore mass-flow rate is zero. If the pressure Pe is less than the design pressure, no further decrease in exit pressure occurs and drop of pressure from design pressure to Pe occurs outside the nozzle giving pressure fluctuations as shown by case (V). If C1, the initial or approach velocity is neglected, then. Critical (throat) flow velocity, v* (eqn. 1. Mach number = M Velocity = V Universal gas constant = R Pressure = p Specific heat ratio = k Temperature = T * = Sonic conditions Density = Area = A Energy equation for the steady flow: q n e t + h + V → 2 2 = w n e t + h o + V → o 2 2 {\displaystyle q_{net}+h+{\frac {{\vec {V}}^{2}}{2}}=w_{net}+h_{o}+{\frac {{\vec {V}}_{o}^{2}}{2}}} 3. i.e. β. Before uploading and sharing your knowledge on this site, please read the following pages: 1. 19.8. Note that a liter (L) is 1/1000 of a cubic meter or 1000 cubic centimeters (10 -3 m 3 or 10 3 cm 3 ). (a) find if the flow through the nozzle is critical flow. Nozzles are used to remove air from a condenser. Critical Pressure Ratio 7. The relationships for flow rate, pressure loss and head loss through orifices and nozzles are presented in the subsequent section. Large Temperature variations result in density variations. 1. 3. We will solve: mass, linear momentum, energy and an equation … When the back pressure is increased the shock moves upstream and disappears at the nozzle throat where pressure Pe has some value P3. Let us consider the case of nozzle and let us write here the steady flow energy equation Image Guidelines 4. The steam in states between S and B is supersaturated or a metastable state. The expansion upto throat is taken to be isentropic. 4. Figure 14.2 shows an adiabatic and reversible, i.e., isentropic, ﬂow through a duct with varying cross section. F = (m dot * V)e - (m dot * V)0 The first term on the right hand side of this equation is usally called the gross thrust of the engine, while the second term is called the ram drag . At throat, velocity is equal to sonic velocity. For diffuser the velocity should decrease continuously so a diffuser is selected as below: The convergent-diffuser will decrease the velocity of fluid to sonic velocity. These relationships all utilise the parameter. So that Pe/Pt is less than 1 but greater than critical pressure ratio, the velocity increases in the convergent region of the nozzle, but mach number (m) is less than 1 at throat. 3. The achievement of equilibrium between the liquid and vapour phase is therefore delayed and vapour continues to expand in a superheated or dry state. Some Applications of a Nozzle 3. The pressure-drop from critical pressure to P2 takes place after the nozzle. During this process, velocity of fluid increases with decreasing pressure. 19.10. This condition is shown by curve (I) in Fig. Increase in final dryness-fraction and increase in enthalpy. The narrowest area of the nozzle has 15 cm2. In the divergent part, the velocity is increased from sonic to super-sonic. So obviously work-done is zero. A rocket engine nozzle is a propelling nozzle (usually of the de Laval type) used in a rocket engine to expand and accelerate the combustion gases produced by burning propellants so that the exhaust gases exit the nozzle at hypersonic velocities. \displaystyle \beta = \frac {D_ {o}} {D_ {1}} β = D1. Then an increase in the area (dA > 0) produces a negative increase (decrease) in the velocity (dV < 0). 19.9. The velocity out of a free jet can be expressed as. The density of supersaturated steam is greater than the equilibrium density at the same pressure. The thrust is then equal to the exit mass flow rate times the exit velocity minus the free stream mass flow rate times the free stream velocity. Phenomenon in Nozzles Operating Off the Design Pressure Ratio. Velocity Coefficient 9. Let us consider a convergent-divergent nozzle as shown in Fig. 9. where use has been made of Equation ().Here, is the reservoir sound speed. 3, noting that v*=a) Nozzle exit velocity, v e (eqn.12) and the equation of state for an ideal gas, gives equation 3. You can find typical values in our article on discharge coefficients for nozzles and orifices. = density (ppg) V = velocity (ft/sec) or (ft/min),PV = viscosity (cP),YP = yield point (lbf/100ft 2) The Mollier Chart shows the isentropic flow (1 -1 – 2) of steam through a convergent-divergent nozzle. 19.6. Shocks occur only when the flow is supersonic and after the shock the flow becomes sub-sonic and the rest of the diverging portion acts as a diffuser. (ii) When pressure P2 is less than P1, but more than critical pressure; distribution along the axis is shown by curve (II). Q=A.V Considering now two different pressure values for the same no velocity — pV2+ pgz = E on A and section B, we can write that the flow energy remains = +LpVB2+ pgzB iately before and immediately after the nozzle outlet orifice, len nozzle the a liquid flow This equation gives information whether the given duct will act as a nozzle or a diffuser if the inlet fluid velocity is known. In the convergent part the velocity of fluid is increased from sub-sonic to sonic condition. 3. A nozzle is a device, a duct of varying cross-section area in which a steadily flowing fluid can be made to accelerate by a pressure drop along the duct. Mass-Flow Rate 6. There is no work-done in nozzle therefore W = 0. But by using convergent nozzle we cannot obtain super-sonic flow. The divergent portion acts as a super-sonic nozzle with a continuous decrease in pressure and continuous increase in velocity. The temperature of the supersaturated steam at B will be below the normal temperature of steam for that pressure; this state is known as undercooled state, the amount of undercooling being the difference between the normal temperature and the actual temperature. It is used to accelerate a hot, pressurized gas passing through it to a higher supersonic speed in the axial (thrust) direction, by converting the heat energy of the flow into kinetic energy.
