  • Hydraulic Fracturing

    Abraham Wilson HYDRAULIC FRACTURING Description and Analysis Hydraulic fracturing is a process within the mining and drilling industries used to increase the output of an underground fluid. Fracturing is used to access or augment productivity in petroleum, water and natural gas. The actual process is accomplished deep underground when a pressurized fluid is ejected from underground piping into the surrounding rock formations. The pressure of the fluid creates a crack in the rock which continues...

  • Energy Loss in Open Channel Flow

    because the water surface was not flat especially after the hydraulic jump the water became slightly turbulent which made it harder to adjust the vernier caliper to the desirable position as shown. The elevation of the pointer could have been lowered to a point that was slightly above or under the water surface, this would have a direct effect on the measured water depths. On the other hand, since the water profile after the hydraulic jump was more turbulent than the super-critical flow, more measuring...
