An Introduction to Fluid Dynamicsand Pressure Drop Calculations

Recap: the complete conservation of energy equation is,
Conservation of Energy
Notes:
s
This applies to a steady state scenario with one inlet and one exit.
s
All terms have units of length and are called ‘heads’.
s
H
loss
is a term describing energy losses and must usually besupplied by an empirical formula.
s
This is not Bernoulli’s equation – it has been derived fromcompletely different principals – but Bernoulli can be reduced tothis equation
s
The power associated with an energy head is given by,

So the complete conservation of energy equation is,
Energy Losses
The energy loss term, H
loss
can basically come from two sourceswhich we call:(a) Major losses - - losses due to pipe friction, i.e. the‘roughness’ of the pipes. This is usuallythe largest energy loss in a pipelinesystem.(b) Minor losses - - energy lost at local points on the pipesystem such as pipe bends, pipeconnections, valves, etc.
