To calculate the pressure drop and flowrates in a section of uniform pipe running from Point A to Point B, enter the paramete Note that a positive Dz means that B is higher than A, whereas a negative Dz means that B is lower than A.

Inputs Pressure at A (absolute): Average fluid velocity in pipe, V : Pipe diameter, D : Pipe relative roughness, e/D: Pipe length from A to B, L : Elevation gain from A to B, Dz : Fluid density, r: Fluid viscosity (dynamic), m: Answers Reynolds Number, R: 1.00 10 Friction Factor, f: 0.0180 Pressure at B: 95.5 kPa Pressure Drop: 4.50 kPa Volume Flowrate: 7.85 l/s Mass Flowrate: 7.85 kg/s

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

Proceed by guessing the velocity and inspecting the calculated pressure drop. Refine your velocity guess until the calculated p 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,

where p is the pressure, V is the average fluid velocity, r is the fluid density, z is the pipe elevation above some datum, and Bernoulli's equation states that the total head h along a streamline (parameterized by x ) remains constant. This means that velocity head can be converted into gravity head and/or pressure head (or vice-versa), such that the total head h 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 the pipe walls) and is los

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

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

where L is the pipe length between points A and B, and Dz is the change in pipe elevation (z B - z A ). Note that Dz will be neg

The viscous head term is scaled by the pipe friction factor f. In general, f depends on the Reynolds Number R of the pipe flow

The roughness measure e is the average size of the bumps on the pipe wall. The relative roughness e /D is therefore the size 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 provided by Colebrook,

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 factor f by direct substitution (if laminar; the calculator uses the condition that R < 3000 for this determination) or by iteration using Newton-Raphson (if turbulent). The pressure drop is then calculated using the viscous head equation above. Note that the uncertainties behind the experimental curve fits place at least a 10% uncertainty on the deduced pressure drops. The engineer should be aware of this when making calculations.

Point B, enter the parameters below. The pipe is assumed to be relatively straight (no sharp bends), such that changes in pressure are du
