Pressure Loss of Gas Through Piping

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff. Posted in Fluid Mechanics

formula

\(\Delta p = \frac { \rho \cdot \mu \cdot l \cdot {v_g}^2 } { 2d } \)

Where:

\(\Delta p\) = pressure loss

\(\rho\) (Greek symbol rho) = density of gas

\(\mu\) (Greek symbol mu) = friction coefficient

\(l\) = pipe length

\(v_g\) = velocity of gas

\(d\) = pipe inner diameter
