Okay i'm currently doing a thrust block design for a water supply system. The new line is a 250mm line. The water is fed from water towers where council has said the operating head is about 30m. I've set up my thrust block program in excel and it is all working fine. The only trouble is i'm unsure on exactly what flowrate/velocity of the water in the new pipeline to calculate the thrust. Now i was thinking the best way to do it was to solve with bernouli's with two unknown V's. and simultainiously solve for v1 = v2a2/a1 and vice versa. but was thinking maybe there might be a better way. I do have a pressure test from a current line in the area where the new line is going. The information from the pressure test is as follows: 65mm line Flow rate/second (L/s) Pressure (kpa) 0 220 5 185 10 125 15 0 16.5 (open) 0 So using this pressure test, is it possible to gain the velocity of water in a 250mm line under similar conditions? or do i use the approximate 30m head in there to calc it instead? I may have to go to council and get more info off them but i struggled enough to get the pressure test. If anyone can help that would be great! Cheers.
