MEE 308 01 - Fluid Mechanics
Pipe Flow Design Project
Due on 15 December, 2014
Preliminary design due on 3 December, 2014
In this project you will design a piping system to pump water from the front of the
library to two prescribed locations on the UD Campus. You will need to determine the
length of pipe required, the diameter of the pipe, and a pump for the system. You will
have to take costs into account, including the initial cost of the pipe, the pump, and
operation cost for the lifetime of your system. A preliminary design solution (worth 20%)
and a final report (worth 80%) presenting your design as to a committee tasked with
selecting a proposal will determine your grade for the project.
Remember: A design problem does not have a single “right” answer, but there are
good and bad designs.
