Calculation of pipe diameter, D, for given flow rate, Q, pipe length, L, pipe roughness, e, head loss, hL, and fluid properties, r & m.

(NOTE: This is an iterative calculation. An assumed value of D will be used to start.)

1. Determine Friction Factor, f, assuming completely turbulent flow

[ f = 1.14 + 2 log10(D/e)-2 ]

(Calculate f with the transition region equation and see if differs from the one calculated above.)

3. Calculate pipe diameter, D using the final value for f calculated in step 2

NOTE: This iterative procedure doesn't converge smoothly to a solution. If the calculated pipe diameter in this step is larger than the assumed pipe diameter above, then replace the assumed pipe diameter value with the next larger standard pipe size. Repeat until you find the smallest standard pipe diameter that gives a smaller calculated required pipe diameter. That is your solution.

With the example values given here, an assumed pipe diameter of 3 inches gives a calculated pipe diameter requirement of 3.4 inches, increasing the assumed pipe diameter to the next standart pipe size ( 3.5 inches ) gives a calculated pipe diameter requirement of 1.8 inches, so a 3.5 inch size is the minimum standard pipe diameter that will do the job.
