Question 3 (a) Water flows through a horizontal pipeline of constant 400 mm diameter in a water treatment plant. The pipe bends through a 70° angle. In order to design a thrust block for the bend, calculate the magnitude and line of action of the force exerted by the water on the pipe. The discharge through the pipe is 0.4 m/s. The water pressure at the inlet is equivalent to 22 m head of water. [10 marks] (b) Oil of...
