dc.description.abstractAquesta tesi tracta el dimensionament i el disseny d’una plataforma de proves de martell d’aigua per al departament d’enginyeria mecànica de Lulea Tekniska Universitet. El sistema permet estudiar i desenvolupar el mètode de Pressió-Temps per mesurament de cabal volumètric, sovint conegut com a mètode Gibson, amb una canonada de secció variable.
dc.description.abstractEsta tesis se ocupa del dimensionamiento y diseño de una plataforma de prueba de golpe de ariete para el departamento de ingeniería mecánica de la Universidad Lulea Tekniska. El sistema permite el estudio y el desarrollo posterior del método de medición de caudal volumétrico Presión-Tiempo, a menudo conocido como método de Gibson, con una tubería de sección transversal variable.
dc.description.abstractThis thesis deals with the design and dimensioning of a water hammer test rig at the mechanical engineering department of Lulea Tekniska Universitet. The system allows the study and further development of the discharge measurement pressure-time method, often known as Gibson method, with a variable cross-section pipe. A theoretical study on water hammer transients and Gibson method constitutes a major part of this document. A detailed explanation of its causes and consequences was carried out, alongside with a literature review and previous investigations. On the other hand, diverse calculations have been done to predict the behavior of the water hammer transient and calculate the maximum pressure and working flow rate of the system. Along with a numerical simulation of this phenomena, these calculations have played a major role in the selection of the components. A variety of retailers were contacted to obtain a complete budget for the system, not without contemplating beforehand the different options and possible working modes of the test rig. Furthermore, in collaboration with other students, an automatic electrical system was designed for the fast valve closure with variable closing times. Due to the current global COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing water proofing of the floor at the laboratory where the test rig is thought to be placed, it has not been possible to execute the building phase of this project. Nevertheless, the system has been fully designed and only the experimental results are pending. The test rig’s building phase and experimental data collection will be appropriately carried out when the laboratory’s conditions allow it.
