Head loss in Pipes

In previous posts we have already discussed major losseses in pipes, Hagen Poiseuille & Darcy Weisbach equation to calculate head loss. For minor losses there are direct formulas that need to be remembered Minor Loss 1. Loss due to sudden Enlargement   2. Loss due to sudden Conraction v2 is the velocity in the contracted …

Boundary Layer

Let’s assume a fluid is flowing over a solid body.When a real fluid flows over a solid body, the velocity of fluid at the boundary will be zero. As we move away from boundary in perpendicular direction velocity increases to the free stream velocity i.e. there will be velocity gradient. As we can see in …
