•Total energy per unit weight of the flowing water is called head

–includes three components: kinetic, potential and pressure heads

•Units of pressure are Pascals (N/m2)
•Pressure head (h) is defined as pressure upon specific weight (p/ρg)

–1kPa = 01.02 m

•Due to friction, water flow in a pipe/channel results in development of
shear stress between the flowing water and the wetted wall

–Friction depends on flow rate, roughness of the surface, length of the
channel/pipe and hydraulic radius of the channel/pipe

•Head loss due to friction (major losses) is calculated by

–Darcy-Weisbach formula
–Hazen-Williams formula
–Chezy formula - Mannings formula combined with Colebrook-White formula

•Turbulence due to appurtenances and fittings on the pipelines/channels
also causes head loss (minor losses)
HGL: Imaginary line corresponding to the sum of the potential head and the
pressure head drawn for a pipeline/channel
•For pipe flow it corresponds to the height to which water will rise
vertically in a tube attached to a pipeline

Hazen-Williams formula

‘C’ is carrying capacity factor and

also referred to as roughness
coefficient
‘C’ value icreases with increasing
internal smoothness, and
increasing pipe diameter, but
decreases wih pipe age

‘C’ value to a negligible extent is

affected by changes in flow rates

Plastic pipes have higher ‘C’ value

(140) then iron pipes (130)
