What is coefficient of contraction?

The coefficient of contraction is defined as the ratio between the area of the jet at the vena contracta and the area of the orifice.

What is the effect of sudden contraction?

A sudden contraction increases the pressure loss compared to the constant-area bend and it affects the pressure distribution throughout the entire bend.

FAQ

What is Coefficient of contraction for sudden contraction?
The Coefficient of contraction for sudden contraction formula is known while considering the loss of head due to sudden contraction and the velocity of flow at section 2-2 and is represented as C c=V2/(V2+sqrt(hc*2*[g])) or coefficient of contraction=velocity at section 2 2/(velocity at section 2 2+sqrt(loss of head sudden contraction*2*[g])). The velocity at section 2 2 is the flow velocity of the liquid flowing in a pipe at a particular section after the sudden enlargement of the pipe size and The loss of head sudden contraction is the energy loss caused due to the expansion followed by the contraction on flow through pipes.
How to calculate Coefficient of contraction for sudden contraction?
