FAQ

What is Head Loss due to friction?
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 and is represented as hf=f*uf^(2)*l/(PD*2*[g]) or Head loss=Darcy friction factor*Fluid Velocity^(2)*Length/(Pipe Diameter*2*[g]). Length is the measurement or extent of something from end to end, Fluid velocity is the volume of fluid flowing in the given vessel per unit cross sectional area, Darcy friction factor is denoted by f. Its value depends on the flow's Reynolds number Re and on the pipe's relative roughness ε / D. It can be obtained from Moody's chart and Pipe Diameter is the diameter of the pipe in which the liquid is flowing.
How to calculate Head Loss due to friction?
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 is calculated using Head loss=Darcy friction factor*Fluid Velocity^(2)*Length/(Pipe Diameter*2*[g]). To calculate Head Loss due to friction, you need Length (l), Fluid Velocity (uf), Darcy friction factor (f) and Pipe Diameter (PD). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Length, Fluid Velocity, Darcy friction factor and Pipe Diameter and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
How many ways are there to calculate Head loss?
In this formula, Head loss uses Length, Fluid Velocity, Darcy friction factor and Pipe Diameter. We can use 1 other way(s) to calculate the same, which is/are as follows -
  • Head loss=(128*Viscous Force*Rate of flow*Length of Pipe)/(specific weight of liquid*pi*(Diameter of Pipe)^(4))
