Head Loss Course
The head loss that occurs in pipes is dependent on the flow velocity, pipe length and diameter, and a friction factor based on the roughness of the pipe and the Reynolds number of the flow. The head loss that occurs in the components of a flow path can be correlated to a piping length that would cause an equivalent head loss.
This course discusses:
- Head loss
- Friction factor
- Darcy's equation
- Minor losses
- Equivalent piping length
