Abstract: The evaluation of the friction factor in conduits with special properties cannot always be done trustfully with conventional methods. Elements such as the geometry of the conduction and the presence of solid particles in the transported liquid (slurries) demand other considerations. The present work analyses the case of a conduction system, composed by a pipeline of 762 mm diameter and almost 200 km length with several pumping stations, characterized by the presences of steep slopes and horizontal and vertical curves, transporting crude oil. An analysis based on field measurements and supported on experimental and numerical concepts was done, in order to understand this important phenomenon, which can be related with other kind of long pipeline systems (aqueducts). Results show that the friction factor is different from the expected value for low Reynolds numbers and particular conditions in the geometry of the line.
Description: Paper presented at The Seventh International Conference on HydroScience and Engineering (ICHE)hosted by the College of Engineering at Drexel Univeristy on September 10-13, 2006 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The conference theme was IT in the Field of HydroSciences. It included several mini-symposia that emphasized IT topics in HydroSciences and the yearly meeting of the metadata group of the International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange organization.
