Contest Number 6

Civil Engineering

A rotating horizontal plate is situated at a small distance h above a parallel rotating horizontal plate. The upper plate rotates with an angular velocity v and the lower plate rotates in the opposite direction with an angular velocity w. The centre line of the upper plate is situated at a distance b from the centre line of the lower plate. If the space between the plates is filled with fluid of viscosity m, derive an equation for the laminar velocity distribution between the two plates. You may email your entry or apply online below.

Contest Number 9

Civil Engineering

A rotating horizontal rectangular plate of length l and breadth b is situated at a small distance h above a parallel horizontal plate which extends to infinity in both directions. If the space between the plates is filled with fluid of viscosity m and the angular velocity of the rectangular plate, which rotates around its centroid, is v, derive an equation for the torque and the power required to keep the upper plate in a state of rotation. You may email your entry or apply online below.

Contest Number 10

Engineering

An infinitely long solid cylinder of radius r is kept in a state of rotation at an angular velocity v inside an infinitely long hollow cylinder of inside radius R, the space between the two cylinders being filled with a fluid of viscosity m. The centre line of the inner cylinder is parallel to, and at a distance of b from the centre line of the outer cylinder. If the motion of the fluid between the inner rotating cylinder and the outer static cylinder is laminer, derive the equation for fluid flow between the two cylinders.

Contest Number 11

Civil Engineering

Derive the equation for the discharge Q from a vertical well partially penetrating into a saturated unconfined homogeneous isotropic aquifer extending upto infinity in both the horizontal directions. Do not make the wrong assumption that the flow is cylindrical upto the level of the bottom of the well and spherical below that level. You may email your entry or apply online below. 

Contest Number 12

Civil Engineering

Derive the equation for the steady-state discharge Q from a vertical well fully penetrating an aquifer resting on impervious hard rock and extending to infinity in both the horizontal directions. The hydraulic conductivity of the aquifer is randomly heterogeneous. You may email your entry or apply online below. 

Contest Number 13

Civil Engineering

Suppose that a vertical cylindrical container of radius R is filled to a height H with saturated soil of hydraulic conductivity K. A vertical cylindrical fully penetrating well of radius r is present in the soil with the centre line of the well being at a horizontal distance of a from the centre line of the cylinder. The discharge from the well is constant at Q and the recharge into the soil is also constant at Q. If the recharge into the soil is started s seconds after the starting of pumping from the well, derive the equation for the water table in the soil. You may email your entry or apply online below.
