Liquid Architecture (2/7)
Computation of the geometry of the water membrane's guide-line
Medium speed of the water flow on the first section V1 = 31,5 m/s
Medium speed of the water flow on the second section V1 = 36,0 m/s
Geometry characteristics of the water lift and membrane computation
Cross-sectional area of the membrane should be constant at each part of the length, otherwise the meblare will brake due to lack of water. That's why, we set cross-sectional height in the lower part of membrane, starting from the need to provide heat insulation. After that, we compute the cross-sectional height for each point of membrane.
The volume of water feed per second calculation: W = SxHx2 = 34,6x30x2 = 2076 m3/sec
Geometry of the water lift.
The energy quantity for 2076 m3ps water delivery with speed of 30 mps in vertical direction:
Е kinetic = (m x V2) / 2
Е kinetic = (m x 900) / 2 = 450 x m
Е potential = P x h = m x a x h
Е potential = m x 10 x h
m x 10 x h = 450 x m
Height of the water lift = 45 m
