Determining Friction Factors in Turbulent Pipe Flow
Several approaches are reviewed for calculating fluid-flow friction factors in fluid mechanics problems using the Colebrook equation
Dejan Brkić Beograd, Serbia
Head loss due to friction for fluids traveling through pipes, tubes and ducts is a critical parameter in the chemical process industries. The Colebrook equation is used to assess hydraulic resistance for turbulent flow in both smooth- and rough-walled pipes. Determining friction factors for the Colebrook equation requires either calculating iteratively or manipulating the equation to express friction factors explicitly....
