How to Calculate Friction Coefficient?
Friction Coefficient calculator uses Local Friction Coefficient = Wall Shear Stress/(0.5*Density*(Fluid Velocity^2)) to calculate the Local Friction Coefficient, The Friction Coefficient is defined as the ratio of wall shear stress to the dynamic head of the stream. Local Friction Coefficient is denoted by C_{fx} symbol.
How to calculate Friction Coefficient using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Friction Coefficient, enter Wall Shear Stress (τ_{w}), Density (ρ) & Fluid Velocity (u_{f}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Friction Coefficient calculation can be explained with given input values -> 4.9E-5 = 3.5/(0.5*997*(12^2)).
