Metals mks THE CONSERVATION NONCONSERVATION LAWS USED BY THE MECHANICAL ENGINEER Dennis Ballou INTRODUCTION The purpose of this paper is to examine the various laws underlying mechanical engineering from two viewpoints that of a system and that of a control volume A further purpose is to restate a generalized method the Reynolds Transport Theorem for transforming the laws from their formulation in terms of a system to that equally applicable to a control volume First let us be clear about the de nitions of system and control volume A system1 sometimes called closed system is a collection of identi able masses whose composition remains constant over time Mass cannot cross the boundary of a system although energy might The system boundary however is subject to change eg movement of a piston in a cylinder If we wish to rrther restrict the system to prevent energy from crossing the boundary an extremely use rl concept for modeling mechanical engineering systems then we refer to the system as an isolated system We can model an entire steam power plant as a system because the mass of the water circulating through the system does not change with time If we increase the system boundary to include a fuel tank a portion of the atmosphere to provide combustion air a portion to receive the ue gas and a portion of say a lake to provide cooling water then we have an isolated system that is enough isolated for useful engineering calculations But many engineering components such as turbines and compressors are open with mass constantly crossing the boundary These components are analyzed as control volumes or open systems A control volume or open system is an identi able space whose boundaries remain xed We should get used to both de nitions as they are used throughout our literature A problem is immediately presented however because our fundamental laws are formulated with respect to systems We need therefore a method for transforming the laws from applicability to a system to that of a control volume The Reynolds Transport Theorem is the tool for accomplishing this task Let us rst tabulate our laws in a form useful for analysis After Munson let the variable B stand for the parameters further de ned in the table to follow We note that B is an extensive property pertaining to the entire system control volume The parameter b is the corresponding intensive property such that B mb 1 where m is the mass of the system and B Ipr rys CV I See eg Munson p 184 2 See eg Black and Hartley p 3 A dm dt drh pI7 dA pI7dA7 Figure 1 Control Surface an dA exiting mass ow or We see from the gure and the de nition of 393 that outward mass ow occurs when 90 lt 0 lt 90 Furthermore because the cosine of angles within this range is positive outward ow rate is a positive quantity On the other hand inward ow rate occurs for angles greater than 90 and less than 90 90 lt G lt 90 Thus inward ow rate is a negative quantity Now consider transport across the boundary of any extensiVe property We express this transport by multiplying the intensive property by the mass ow rate For the di erential flow rate the transport of a property may be generalized by the expression dBbdmprdZ For transport into and out of the entire control surface we have B I b p17 d2 2 cs or if we assume that properties across the ports are constant so that they can be placed outside the integral and if we postulate a nite number of ports then we can write B an39z an z 3 at in Recall that ow into the control volume is negative and ow out positive Finally let us consider the transformation 39om the system viewpoint to that of the control volume at the point in time when their boundaries coincide We note that the system passes into through and out of the control volume over time We perceive then that at coincidence the time rate of change of B for the system is equal to the time rate of change of B for the control volume plus in the limit the instantaneous transport of B across the coincident boundaries In equation form we have DB y 53C Ipr dA 3 4 Dt 6t CS By convention the capital D is used to denote the rate of change from the system viewpoint It is the total derivative as distinguished from the rst term on the right which is a partial derivative The rst term on the right pertains to changes in the control volume with time If nothing is changing such as pressure or temperature then that term is zero and the only active term is that which accounts for the mass transport A control volume for which the rst term is zero is said to be in steady state Consider a steam power plant operating in steady state at a particular power level Temperatures pressures and ow rates as well as other properties at various locations throughout the plant are invariant Now suppose that the load demand increases To accommodate the demand the throttle valve is opened to increase the mass ow rate For a short interval of time property values throughout the system will experience uctuations until the plant settles down again in steady state It is during this and other transitory periods such as initially lling the plant with water that the rst term is operative CONSERVATION 0F MASS We start with equation 1 From the table b l and 1 0 Substituting in the transport equation 4 gives Dmsrs 077 Dr pfd2 0 CS For a control volume in steady state with a

Munson Metals holy HEAT TRANSFER AND HEAT EXCHANGERS By Dennis Ballou INTRODUCTION The engineer is frequently called upon to transfer energy from one uid to another The transfer is most often effected by a heat exchanger A steam power plant for example includes several major heat exchangers boiler superheater economizer and condenser It also includes minor heat exchangers such as the gland exhaust condenser and the lube oil cooler The principal heat exchangers in an air conditioning system are the evaporator and the condenser Other applications abound throughout the mechanical industry THEORETICAL CONSIDERATIONS AND THE HEAT TRANSFER PROBLEM The typical heat transfer problem involves energy transfer from a uid stream at an assumed average temperature through a series of resistances to a destination uid stream also at an assumed average temperature For transfer through a pipe wall the resistances consist of in order a thermal boundary layer TBL a scale or soot layer the pipe wall another scale layer and the destination TBL Each TBL is characterized by a convection or lm coef cient designated h Newton s Law of Cooling models heat transfer through the TBL qquot 11Ta T where q

difference is to be used for D Because the temperature varies on each side of the heat exchanger as heat transfer occurs we must derive a sort of average temperature difference Consider a counter ow

the de nition of n efficiency it is deduced that ns with a high thermal conductivity low ratio of perimeter to cross sectional area and small convection coef cient are desirable Because a small convection coef cient conduces to n performance ns are frequently placed on the gas side of a gastoliquid heat exchanger Automobile radiators and air conditioning evaporators and condensers are common examples Fins are often placed on economizers in boiler designs 3 See Incropera Section 365 4 See eg Incropera p 123 ME H313 Me Application of Psychrometrics to Heating and Cooling There are several cases of interest which we will consider1 First we can heat or cool the air without changing the moisture content of the air We could heat with humidi cation or cool with dehumidi cation We can use evaporative cooling adiabatic mixing of airstreams and will look at cooling tower processes Humidi cation means that we are adding moisture content to the air and dehumidi cation means that we are removing moisture content from the air 1 Heating and Cooling Simple heating and cooling simply involve changing the dry bulb temperature of the moist air without changing the moisture content The humidity ratio remains unchanged and so we use a horizontal line on the psychrometric chart to represent this process This provides no control over the relative humidity and may produce conditions that are uncomfortable Heating will result in lower relative humidity and cooling will result in a higher one 2 Cooling with Dehumidification We can use dehumidi cation to get rid of some of the moisture in the air which will lower the relative humidity This can be accomplished by lowering the air temperature below the dew point and letting some of the moisture condense out Typically the moisture condenses on the outside of the refrigerant tubing This process is assumed to occur as simple cooling rst and then condensation While the moisture is condensing the air is assumed to remain saturated The air is assumed to leave the cooling section at the nal dewpoint temperature The process as seen on the psychrometric chart is shown below 100 quot39 100 I l 4 T3 T2 T1 b Process Representation for Cooling and Dehum di cation Figure 117 Cooling with dehumidi cation 1 Black W2 and Hartley JG Themwdynamics Harper Collins 1995 To analyze this rst we realize that the mass of the dry air does not change throughout this process The water mass does change however The conservation of mass for water gives that 03 quot1413 me 01 mill or because ma1 mag mwz 01 12371391a An energy balance gives no work Q Ihaa ha rith hwz ma h1 75111013 hl quot39 ma 01 w3hw2 3 Heating with humidi cation Adding humidi cation is often necessary to make a heated space comfortable One example of humidi cation is the adiabaticsaturation process when air is passed over a moist surface to gain moisture by evaporation In this case the dry bulb temperature could be increased or decreased depending on the temperature of the evaporating water This analysis is very similar to that used for the dehumidi cation and is left to the student or their textbooks l 4 Evaporative Cooling Here the energy removed from the warm air is used to evaporate water This method adds moisture to the air stream while cooling it and so would be useful in regions where the warm air has a low humidity This process is considered to be adiabatic because little heat is lost to the environment Again we can apply conservation of mass of air and water and conservation of energy We nd that the mass of water added is just the mass of air times the difference in humidity ratio identical to that for a humidi er The difference is that here the water is liquid and has low enthalpy therefore not changing that of the air stream much Thus this process is considered constant enthalpy or constant wet bulb temperature 5 Adiabatic Mixing Airconditioning processes often require the mixing of two air streams especially in the case where outside fresh air is mixed with the return air in the system The two streams are assumed to have different dry bulb temperatures and different humidity ratios Usually this mixing is adiabatic with regard to heat transfer to the surroundings We can find the conditions of the mixed air stream by again looking at a mass balance of the air and water For the air quot1111 maz ma3 and for the water wlrha1 02 maz mamas We can ellmlnate rim to get 03 w 771111 1112 We can also obtain E M maS hl hz Note that condensation can occur sometimes when the two streams are mixed 6 Wet Cooling Tower A wetcooling tower is a way of cooling down water that has been used to remove heat such as in a power plant This might be water that must be returned to a river or lake or perhaps the water must be reused Below is a schematic of a wetcooling tower Warmair exit From condenser System bonndary Atmospheric air Makeup water To condenser Figure 1112 Schematic of a wetcooling tower The water is cooled by evaporation into the air in the tower The air continuously ows upward through the tower Some water is carried off by the air stream from evaporation and must be replaced Here the mass of the air is unchanged as is passes through the tower The mass of the condenser water leaving is usually the same as at the entrance That is m3m4mw N 343IS holes NOZZLE EQUATIONS FLOW OF STEAM IN NOZZLES

frictionless blade that turns the steam through 180 and exits with zero absolute velocity This condition represents the greatest possible conversion of kinetic energy of the entering jet into blade work We proceed to develop a relation between the absolutejclocity of the jet entering the blade V and the blade speed V1 For a given blade speed this relation will permit us to design a nozzle such that the exiting velocity will provide for maximum energy conversion or in different words maximum ef ciency V Wl Let W be the veloc1ty of the Jet relative to the blade The positive direction is to the right Vb Kmn VWV VL J Because the blade is frictionless W2 Wl Furthermore because energy conversion in the blade is complete V2 0 Substituting and combining equations we get V1 K W 39Ws 2V VI 2V 1 As we shall see later the centrifugal force of rotation and the strength of the blade material limit the blade speed Given the blade speed however we can determine the ideal absolute velocity entering the blade ACTUAL NOZZLE ANGLE We must now modify this result to account for the geometry restrictions of a real turbine In our derivation the acute angle between V and the tangential direction called the nozzle angle is zero In an actual turbine because of physical constraints the nozzle angle must be greater than zero but not so great as to cause an appreciable loss in ef ciency Nor should the angle be so small as to cause an excessively long nozzle that would increase friction and decrease ef ciency quotThe values used in practice range om 10 to 30 deg 12 to 20 deg being common The larger angles are used only when necessary and usually at the lowpressure end of large turbines quot4 Equation 1 corrected for a nite nozzle angle a becomes HIM xx j V1 cosa 2Vb 2 M Because of disk friction

fabrication and e iciency considerations and V from equation 2 we proceed to construct the velocity triangles From these triangles we can nd the change in absolute tangential velocity and calculate the shaft work Entrance Triangle We rst draw a horizontal line representing the tangential direction Then we construct a vector representing V at angle a a er which we complete the entering triangle using the vector relation V1 11 The angle between the relative velocity and the tangential direction is designated VEll V1 Wal W01 Vb The Exit Triangle Draw W at angle y to the tangent Reducing y somewhat 39om the calculated value for B will result in increased blade ef ciency quotValues of 39y in use vary from 15 to 30 deg at high and intermediate pressures and from 30 to 40 deg at the lowpressure end of the turbine sometimes reaching 40 to 50 deg in large turbines where maximum ow area is neededquot5 W 2 is found by multiplying W by the velocity 7 coe z cient k1 which accounts for

a continuous series of compromises between what is most efficient what will operate most reliably and what will cost the leastquot The client will usually specify steam conditions condenser vacuum rotational speed and capacity in kilowatts or horsepower The client may also specify a maximum cost and minimum ef ciency Calculate the principal dimensions of the nozzles and blading of a turbine

Using a tabular format we proceed in turn for each stage to subtract Ahs from the entrance enthalpy and then add back the reheat to determine the stage end point The needed thermodynamic state properties including speci c volume are found as the process proceeds The Engineering Equation Solver facilitates preparation of the table Laying out the work on a Mollier chart is helpful both as a check and to determine the stages that are in the wet region thus requiring different input states Connecting all of the end points yields the condition line If the desired nal pressure 0491 psia is not reached a new trial Ahs and corresponding q are found and additional iterations run as needed To estimate the required change divide the error in enthalpy by the number of stages and by the stage ef ciency and then add or subtract this quantity from Ahs to get a new trial value A er the correct value for Ahs is found the nal velocity triangles can be constructed and corresponding values

laws are not speci cally applicable Munson notes that diameter changes of less than about 20 will render them useful Also if inplace testing of a pump results in a head rise higher than desired the problem might be correctable by machining the impeller diameter by an amount predicted by these laws 1 See Munson p 807
