What is Total Head?

The sum of the Elevation head, Pressure head, and Velocity head of a liquid. For ground water, the velocity-head component is generally negligible.

How to Calculate Total Head?

Total Head calculator uses Total Head=Elevation Head+Pressure Head to calculate the Total Head, Total Head is defined as the sum of elevation head and is the distance from the datum plane to the point where the pressure head hp. Total Head and is denoted by ht symbol.

How to calculate Total Head using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Total Head, enter Elevation Head (z) and Pressure Head (hp) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Total Head calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.018 = 0.006+0.012.

FAQ

What is Total Head?
Total Head is defined as the sum of elevation head and is the distance from the datum plane to the point where the pressure head hp and is represented as ht=z+hp or Total Head=Elevation Head+Pressure Head. Elevation Head is the energy per unit mass possessed by a fluid as a result of its height above some reference level and Pressure Head is the height of a liquid column that corresponds to a particular pressure exerted by the liquid column on the base of its container.
How to calculate Total Head?
Total Head is defined as the sum of elevation head and is the distance from the datum plane to the point where the pressure head hp is calculated using Total Head=Elevation Head+Pressure Head. To calculate Total Head, you need Elevation Head (z) and Pressure Head (hp). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Elevation Head and Pressure Head and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
