Pipe Flow Wizard - Pressure Drop Calculations
Pipe Flow Wizard will calculate the pressure drop in a pipe due to friction losses using the Darcy Weisbach equation. It will calculate the pressure drop based on the pipe material, inner roughness, inner diameter, length of pipe, fluid flow rate, fluid density and viscosity, and the length of pipe used.
Set the following values :
1. Internal roughness of the pipe.
2. Internal diameter of the pipe.
3. Length of the pipe.
4. Valves, bends, and other fittings in the pipe.
5. Elevation change of the pipe (Rise or fall).
6. Flow through the pipe.
7. Select flow rate units from drop down list.
8. Select pressure units from drop down list.
9. Change the fluid data : Name, viscosity, density
The fluid data can only be changed if
