How to Calculate Head Loss due to Friction?
Head Loss due to Friction calculator uses Head loss = Darcy Friction Factor*Fluid Velocity^(2)*Length of Pipe/(Pipe Diameter*2*[g]) to calculate the Head loss, Head Loss due to friction is a measure of the reduction in the total head (sum of elevation head, velocity head and pressure head) of the fluid as it moves through a fluid system owing to friction. Head loss is denoted by h_{f} symbol.
How to calculate Head Loss due to Friction using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Head Loss due to Friction, enter Darcy Friction Factor (f_{Darcy}), Fluid Velocity (u_{Fluid}), Length of Pipe (L_{Pipe}) & Pipe Diameter (d_{pipe}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Head Loss due to Friction calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.145385 = 0.1*12^(2)*0.2/(1.01*2*[g]).
