To slow the descent of the crate a low porosity parachute is deployed asshown in Figure 3.1. The parachute has a drag coefficient CD = 1.2. To ensure theintegrity of the delivered goods, the maximum allowable (i.e. terminal) velocity of thecrate is 7m/s. Which of the following answers is closest to the required minimumdiameter of the parachute?Hint: You may assume that the drag force on the crate is insignificant compared to theparachute drag.

The model car was a 1/4th scale replica of the prototype. Ofparticular interest to the design engineers was the drag force at the freeway cruisingspeed.

Thepump geometry is defined by r1 = 100mm, r2 = 300mm, b = 50mm. The angle ofimpeller blade at the inlet is β1. The inlet is designed so that there is no swirl in theincoming flow.Figure 5.1: Centrifugal pump configuration.During workshop testing the rotational speed, ω, of the pump is slowly increased andwhen ω = 1500rpm it is observed that the inlet flow is shockless.

Marks may be deducted for working which isunreadable or difficult to follow.Question 9 [22 marks]The flow of air around a symmetric wing is visualised, revealing the flow patternsketched in Figure 9.1. Upstream of the wing the flow has a uniform velocity ofmagnitude U. The wing deflects the flow so that at a short distance downstream of thewing, the velocity profile increases linearly from a minimum magnitude of U/2 at thecentreline to the freestream value, U, at a distance L above the centreline. The deflectionof a streamline is shown in the figure. Since the length of the wing into the page, b, ismuch larger than the chord length, c, the flow is two-dimensional. The pressuresupstream and downstream are equal.Figure 9.1: Flow visualisation near a wing.a) Sketch a fully labelled control volume of the flow. Clearly label the control volume(CV), control surface (CS), external forces and fluid fluxes across the CS.

The dimensional form of the functional relationship can be expressed asFD = g(λ, ρ, L, c)Find a non-dimensional form of this functional relationship which would be useful forconducting experiments.To solve this problem you should apply the Buckingham Pi Theorem using thefollowing recipe.1. List the set of n dimensional parameters involved.2. List the set of m primary dimensions (e.g. M, L, t).3. List the dimensions of all dimensional parameters.4. Select m repeating variables.5. Combine the remaining n – m parameters in turn with those selected in step 4and make them into a non-dimensional group.CC0047 Semester 2, 2014 Page 8 of 9Additional Formulae and Useful InformationFluid properties and natural constantsAir at 200C and standard atmospheric pressure density, ρ = 1.2 kg/m3 dynamic viscosity, µ = 1.81 x 10-5 Ns/m2Fresh water at 200C density, ρ = 998 kg/m3 dynamic viscosity, µ = 1.01 x 10-3 Ns/m2SAE-30 Oil at 200C density, ρ = 917 kg/m3 dynamic viscosity, µ = 0.30 Ns/m2Mercury at 200C density, ρ = 13550 kg/m3 dynamic viscosity, µ = 1.56 x 10-3 Ns/m2Acceleration due to gravity, g = 9.81 m/s2Ideal Gas Equation of StateIntegral forms of the fundamental conservation equationsContinuity:Linear momentum:Angular momentum:Bernoulli equation:Differential forms of the fundamental conservation equations Continuity:∂+dρ ρ= 0∂ρρ Navier-Stokes equation (x –direction):Centre of pressure  + ⋅ = 0 ∫ dV ∫ V dAdtdCV CS ρ ρV dV V V dAdtdFCV CS∑ ∫    + ∫   ⋅  = ρ ρconstant2 2+ + gz =P Vρ (r V ) dV (r V ) V dAdM∑ 0 = ∫ × ρ ∫ ρdtCVCS  + ×⋅    ∂+∂∂+∂wzvyuxdt∂ ∂+∂ ∂+∂ ∂+∂ ∂ = – ∂ ∂+∂ ∂+∂ ∂+∂ ∂222222zuyuxuPxguzwuyvuxuutρ ρ x µRxxcFg Iy′ = y + ρ sinθ ˆˆ.RTPρ =CC0047 Semester 2, 2014 Page 9 of 9Parallel axis theoremMoments of area (Note: 2nd moments are taken about the centroid of area)Common non-dimensional numbersReynolds number:Froude number: VgLFr =Weber number:Lift and drag coefficients:Turbomachinery Radial flow machines: T Q r V rV = – ρ ( 2 2 1 1 t t )Axial flow machines: T Q r V rV = – ρ ( 2 2 1 1 t t )P Q u V u V = – ρ ( 2 2 1 1 t t )P Qu V V = – ρ ( t t 2 1) μρVLRe =σρV2 LWe =V AFCV AFCL L D D212212ρ ρ= =2I xx = I xˆxˆ + Ayc
