Pipe Pressure Loss Calculator Wall drag and changes in height lead to pressure drops in pipe fluid flow


To calculate the pressure drop and flowrates in a section of uniform pipe running from Point A to Point

Hint: To Calculate a Flowrate You can solve for flowrate from a known pressure drop using this calculator (instead of solving for a p

Proceed by guessing the velocity and inspecting the calculated pressure drop. Refine your velocity gu Equations used in the Calculation

Changes to inviscid, incompressible flow moving from Point A to Point B along a pipe are described by

Bernoulli's equation states that the total head h along a streamline (parameterized by x) remains con that velocity head can be converted into gravity head and/or pressure head (or vice-versa), such that stays constant. No energy is lost in such a flow. For real viscous fluids, mechanical energy is converted into heat (in the viscous boundary layer along

where D is the pipe diameter. As the flow moves down the pipe, viscous head slowly accumulates tak

For pipe flow, we assume that the pipe diameter D stays constant. By continuity, we then know that th

The viscous head term is scaled by the pipe friction factor f. In general, f depends on the Reynolds Nu

The roughness measure e is the average size of the bumps on the pipe wall. The relative roughness For laminar flow (R < 2000 in pipes), f can be deduced analytically. The answer is,

For turbulent flow (R > 3000 in pipes), f is determined from experimental curve fits. One such fit is pr

The solutions to this equation plotted versus R make up the popular Moody Chart for pipe flow,

The calculator above first computes the Reynolds Number for the flow. It then computes the friction fa .
