Pressure Loss in pipe/ Darcy-Weisbach Formula

When the fluid is flowing through pipes the major energy loss (i.e. head loss due to friction) in pipes is calculated by using Darcy – Weisbach Formula.

Reynolds number

Flow Measurement Using Pitot Tube

Pitot tubes are used to measure air flow in pipes, ducts, and stacks, and  liquid flow in pipes, weirs, and open channels.

Conditions for measuring point:

-Straight stretch of min 5D before & 2D after the pt. is necessary (D=inside diameter of the duct)

-As straight stretch as possible

– No bends, flanges or dampers

 Isokinetic point

For circular ducts :

Rectangular ducts:

The equivalent diameter is used to find out the number of measuring points. Then divide the section into number of equal areas for the measurements.

  1. Excellent article on fluid measurement devices; I learned a lot of information. Due to this article, I learned how to measure the density of water with calculations.
