The friction losses in straight portions of the piping system are based on the fanning friction factor, f, and are represented by the first term at the right of equation (2), where is the average flow velocity, d is the inside diameter of the tube and l the tube length.
Pipe friction is one of the classic laboratory experiments and has always found a place in the practical teaching of fluid mechanics with this unit, friction head losses in straight pipes of very different sizes can be investigated over a range of reynolds’ numbers from 103 to nearly 105. In this experiment, we examined kinetic friction we performed two tests to see which physical properties affect kinetic friction in the first part of the experiment, we determined if the surface area of a block affects the coefficient of kinetic friction between two surfaces in the. Fluid friction - friction that happens when an object moves through a liquid or gas sliding friction - friction that occurs when two surfaces slide over each other rolling friction - friction that is produced when a circular object rolls over another surface. Experiment no 4 | group 3 | may 24,2016 3 relative roughness on the friction factor of the fluid flow methodology the equipment used in the experiment was the fluid- flow set-up and the materials used were steel tape, stopwatch and thermometer.
Where l and d are the length and diameter of the pipe, respectively, v is the average fluid velocity through the pipe and f is the friction factor for the section of the pipe in general, the friction factor is a function of the reynolds number and the non-dimensional surface roughness, e/d. A graph of the experimental friction factor was compared to the theoretical friction factor for the transition of a pipe from smooth to rough it is assumed that the fluid used for the pipe flow was incompressible and pipes were entirely horizontal with constant diameters throughout the tested length.

To determine fluid friction coefficient and reynolds’ number for flow of water through a pipe having smooth bore head loss due to fluid friction and velocity for flow of water through smooth pipes.
A friction lab report is a lab report that describes the results of an experiment involving some aspect of friction, or the resistance of motion as two items move against one another lab reports contain detailed write-ups of the experiment and generally include an introductory, data, results and conclusion. Fluid mechanics 3-aerofoil lab report introduction this report aims to investigate the effect the angle of attack of an aerofoil has on the air flow around it this was done by recording the lift and drag forces the aerofoil experienced when positioned at different angles of attack. Fluid friction experiment report lab report: pipe friction module leader: dr mehdi nazarinia 1 introduction the flow of fluid in a pipe under pressure is used to reach many goals a good knowledge of the fluid flow and pipe pressure at some point along the path of the pipe may facilitate to determine the size, capacity and material of the pipe for a system.
Introduction in this experiment, we tried to determine the relationship between head loss due to fluid friction and velocity for flow of water through smooth bore pipes and to confirm the head loss predicted by a pipe friction equation. Experiment 5 ~ friction purpose: in this lab, you will make some basic measurements of friction first you will measure the coefficients of static friction between several combinations of surfaces using a heavy block and a set of hanging masses. The force of friction we will be completing a formal lab report on the force of friction fluid friction is usually less than sliding friction lubricants change sliding friction to fluid friction lubricants are slippery substances grease for motor parts in a car.
Fluid friction describes the friction between layers of a viscous fluid that are moving relative to each other lubricated friction is a case of fluid friction where a lubricant fluid separates two solid surfaces.
