An example of the wake generated by a wind turbine is sketched in the figures shown below. If this wake can be
assumed to be confined by a streamtube, and if the air at these low speeds can be assumed to be incompressible,
then which of the following statement is true?
(a) Only those air particles which entered the streamtube through area A1 will pass through the wind
turbineâ€™s rotor disc (A); shown as the shaded area in Figure a).
(b) Since conservation of mass must be maintained, particles passing through the wind turbineâ€™s rotor
disc (A) must enter through an area A2 that is equal to A (that is, A2 = A where A2 is located at the
streamtubeâ€™s entry plane as shown in Figure b).

A viscous fluid (with a specific weight Î³f = 1280 [kg/m3] and viscosity Î¼f = 0.15 [kgâ‹…s/m2] ) is contained between
two infinite, horizontal parallel plates as shown in the sketch below. The fluid moves between these parallel

is fixed. A U-tube manometer connected between two points along the bottom indicates a differential height
reading of h = 2.5 [mm].

velocity profile between the plates is given by

Frequently fluid flow phenomenon are described by two terms: laminar and turbulent. For this question you are
asked to provide (in no more than three pages) an introductory explanation of the phenomenon of turbulence
and how turbulent flow is quantitatively characterized.
You are encouraged to use outside (of class) sources of information, however you MUST reference the source(s)
of your information to assign appropriate credit to the source(s). If it is discovered that you have used and not
attributed any source of information in your answer, then you may fail this question and receive a mark of zero.
For example, on the back fly cover of one popular novel the author quotes A. Einstein has been quoted as saying
â€œBefore I die, I hope someone will clarify quantum physics for me. After I die, I hope God will explain turbulence
to me.â€
Obviously, if a Nobel prize-winning physicist found the phenomenon of turbulence difficult to understand, then
you may also expect some difficulties â€¦ however, this doesnâ€™t mean that you cannot have some insight into this
intriguing phenomenon.
 Giles Foden, â€œTurbulence,â€ Faber &amp; Faber, London (2009), as quoted on back cover. Question 15
The sketch below shows a 1.5 m diameter tank being filled from an overhead pipe with room-temperature water
at the rate of 175 litres/s through its top. The diameter of this overhead inflow pipe is 30 cm. At the same time,
water is draining from the bottom of the tank through two small pipes of 10 cm and 15 cm in diameter,
respectively. If we assume that the speed of the water outflow from both drainage pipes (at the bottom of the
tank) can be calculated from relation v = (2gh)1/2 , where â€œhâ€ is the depth of the water in the tank, and â€œgâ€ is the
gravitational acceleration ( g=9.81m/s2 ), then answer the following: 7 NAME: __________________________________________ STUDENT NUMBER: ___________________ (a) When the volume of the water in the tank reaches 300 litres, then what would be the rate of change of the
water level inside the tank?
(b) How much water (in litres) has been accumulated in the tank by the time the steady state condition is reached
(i.e. when the water level would remain unchanged)? Question 16
Water enters and flows through the angled pipe sketched below. The pipe discharges at atmospheric pressure.
It was determined that the axial forces exerted at the rods (A and B) holding the pipe stationary are,
respectively, 132 N and 62.3 N. Neglecting viscous effects, the weight of the water inside the pipe and
assuming uniform velocity profiles at the inflow and exit sections, calculate
(a) The volume flow rate through this pipe, and
(b) The gauge pressure at the inflow cross-section.
You may assume that the specific weight of the water is 9810 N/m3 and acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s2. 8
