# SUMMARY

The title of this experiment is orifice and free jet flow. The objectives are to determine the coefficient of velocity, the coefficient of contraction and the coefficient of discharge for two small orifices. The method used throughout this experiment is taking the

measurement of jet trajectories under steady flow conditions. The coefficient of velocity is estimated from the gradient of the graph root of yH against x. The coefficient of discharge is obtained from plotting the square root of the head against the volumetric flow rate. The coefficient of contraction is from calculation using the equation Cc=Cd/Cv. From the experiment that has been carried out, it is found that the coefficient of velocity, Cv can be taken to an average, since the values are similar for each diameter of orifice and different heads taken. Whereas values of the coefficient of discharge, Cd cannot be taken to an average since both values of Cd for 3 mm and 6 mm orifice sizes are not similar to each other. Other details of the experiment can be found in the following sections.

Theory
In practical situations, flow through a constriction into free space is not very common though it does occur in liquid distributors, such as in packed distillation column. However, similar situations occur in more common situations, e.g. an orifice plate for flow measurement. In such enclosed locations, the jet characteristics are harder to study, so free jet is a convenient experimental model.

Orifice is an aperture through which fluid passes and its thickness (in the direction of flow) is very small in comparison with its other measurements. An orifice is used for flow-metering purposes has a sharp edge so there are minimum contact with the fluid.

Based on Bernoulli equation, fluid that moves from the liquid surface in the tank to the jet leaving from the orifice, it is seen that the loss of potential is balanced by the gain in kinetic energy. Assumption has been made that the pressure is the same at liquid surface and in the jet. Hence taking initial velocity in the tank as zero, per unit mass of fluid :

gH = vi2 / 2

(1)

Where vi is the ideal fluid velocity. If actual velocity, v in the discharge plane was measured it would differ from the ideal velocity vi

## We define a Coefficient of Velocity (Cv) as

Cv = v / v i

(2)

The actual velocity can be deduced from the jet trajectory by resolving the trajectory in the x and y directions. The horizontal component x can be assumed remain constant, neglecting air resistance, so that in time t, it travel by a distance of x = vt (3)

The vertical component changes under the influence of gravity, so that at a time t, it is represented by : y = gt2 / 2 (4)

Combining those equations 1-4 gives an expression Cv in terms of x, y, and H x = 2 Cv yH Therefore graph yH versus x gives slope 2 Cv. (5)

Also when a jet discharged from a sharp edged orifice, the jet is smaller in diameter than the orifice.

This leads to the definition of the Coefficient of Contraction (Cc)as : Cc = Jet Area Orifice Area = Ac Ao (6)

The Coefficient of Discharge (Cd) is defined as the ratio of actual flow rate Q (m3/s) to the ideal flow rate, which can be calculated from the orifice area. The ideal mass flow rate is that which would occur if the ideal velocity of flow (Vi) existed through the full area of the orifice :

Cd =

Alternatively Cd can be expressed in terms of the coefficient of velocity and contraction : Cd = CcCv

Generally, the graphs of the jet trajectories for the two orifice sizes at the different flow rates are decreasing. The slope of the graph is much higher for the orifice of diameter 3mm compared with the orifice of diameter 6mm. From the graph in Figure 1 and 2, it can seen that the higher the flow rates, the less the gradient of the slope and the less the degree of the decrease of the graph. The graph also shows that the diameter of the orifice do not greatly affect the trajectory of the water flowing out from the orifice. The trajectories differ greatly because of the flow rates.

By using the coefficients of discharge and velocity, the jet diameter at the vena contracta can be estimated. Based on both coefficients obtained, the value for the jet diameter at the vena contracta is 1.2460 x 10 -3 m, which also equivalents to 1.2 mm. This value seems not very reasonable as the real diameter used to find this value is 6 mm. As soon as the water flows out from the orifice, the jet diameter will get smaller.

Unlike the coefficient of velocity, values obtained for coefficient of discharge for both orifice sizes are not similar to each other. This means that the values cannot be taken to an average. This is because both coefficient values are obtained from two different graphs, where the coefficient of velocity obtained from the graph of root of yH against the flow rate, whereas the coefficient of discharge is obtained from the graph of root of H against the flow rate.

Like the coefficient of velocity, the values obtained for coefficient of discharge, Cd for both orifice sizes also seem not similar to each other. This 11

situation may caused by any error that occurred during taking the reading of the y value. However, if the average of the entire gradient is calculated, the value of Cd obtained is 0.5106. From the literature, the common value for C d is in the range of 0.60 to 0.65.

Therefore, common errors done by human could affect the readings and as well as the theory which would be inappropriate value to be obtained from experiment.
