How to Create the System Resistance Curve for Open System

How to Create the System Resistance Curve for Open System

Refer the concept of the system resistance curve from my previous article for better understanding this article. You will find an important equation there: Total system resistance = Frictional resistance + Resistance due to static head (height difference)  + Resistance due to pressure head (pressure difference) + Resistance due to velocity (typically neglected)…………………Eq.1 The aboveRead more about How to Create the System Resistance Curve for Open System[…]

Water Pipe Sizing Calculation Example – Part 2: Determining the Effective Pipe Length

Refer the Part-1 of this piping system design calculations series to know the problem statement and the assumptions. What is Equivalent Pipe Length Method? This the way of converting the Tee bends, valves and other pipe fittings in terms of equivalent pipe length. This value is added to the already existing pipe length to calculateRead more about Water Pipe Sizing Calculation Example – Part 2: Determining the Effective Pipe Length[…]
