Problem 1 In operations such as drilling, a long cylindrical shaft has to be rotated against the viscous resistance offered by a viscous liquid in a narrow gap surrounding the cylinder. The following data is to be used for designing a drilling application: - Drilling mud specific gravity: 2 (water reference) - Viscosity: - Drilling shaft diameter: - Average gap width (between the shaft and earth material): - Maximum operating length: - Maximum rotational speed: (a) Plot the power-vs-rotational speed characteristics of the motor required to drive the drilling shaft. Provide a detailed justification of your calculation. (b) What is the maximum operating flow-induced pressure difference between the drilling shaft surface and the earthen wall of the bore hole? How does this pressure difference compare with the (underground) overall operating pressure of ?
