Local Head Losses
• Local head losses are the “loss” of energy at point where the pipe changes dimension (and/or direction).

Pipe Expansion Pipe Contraction Entry to a pipe from a reservoir Exit from a pipe to a reservoir Valve (may change with time) Orifice plate Tight bends

• They are “velocity head losses” and are represented by u2 hL k L 2g

Value of kL • For junctions and bends we need experimental measurements • kL may be calculated analytically for
 

Losses at an Expansion • As the velocity reduces (continuity) • Then the pressure must increase (Bernoulli) • So turbulence is induced and head losses occur
Turbulence and losses

Expansion Contraction

• By considering continuity and momentum exchange and Bernoulli
