## PIPE FRICTION EQUATION and

DARCY &WEISBACH EQUATION
The pipe friction equation states that the head lost in
friction in a given pipe is proportional to the velocity
Dimensional analysis gives us the proper form for an
equation, but does not yield numerical result, since it
does not deal with theoretical numerical factors.
FRICTION IN CIRCULAR CONDUITS
The Pipe friction equation states that the head lost in friction in a
given pipe is proportional to velocity head
The equation is dimensionally homogeneous
We may use it with any consistent system of unit
Exact form of and numerical values for and f may be
determined by experiments or other means

Entrance conditions in Laminar Flow
Entrance Condition in Laminar Flow
Rounded Entrance: to avoid any initial distribution of the entering
streams
At the boundaries particles of fluid adhere to the walls. This is called
no slip condition so zero velocity there and max velocity gradient and
velocity is uniform across the rest of the diameter
As the fluid progress, friction originating from walls, slows down the
streamlines in the vicinity of the wall
As Q is constant, velocity in the centre increases until the final velocity
profile is parabola.
Theory & observations have established that maximum velocity in the
centre of the pipe will reach 99% of its ultimate value in a distance

## Entrance Length Le = 0.058 RD

Entrance Condition in Laminar Flow
What would be the critical maximum value of this length
When R<2000, how critical length is affected
Un established flow/entrance flow
No frictional affects, uniform velocity outer annular zone extending
from the core of the pipe wall Invicid CORE
Thickness of the outer zone increases as it moves along the wall
Boundary Layer
Viscosity in the boundary layer acts to transmit the effect of boundary
shear inwardly into the flow
At what location boundary layer has grown, such as it occupies the
whole x-section
Velocity profile remains the same beyond this x section, flow is known
as established/fully developed flow
The flow will continue as fully developed so long as no change occurs
to the straight pipe surface.
