Pressure Loss of Steam Through Piping

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Mechanics

formula

\(\Delta p = \frac {  \mu \cdot l \cdot {v_s}^2 }  { 2d \cdot \upsilon } \)

Where:

\(\Delta p\) = pressure loss

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

\(l\) = pipe length

\(v_s\) = velocity of steam

\(d\) = pipe inner diameter

\(\upsilon\) (Greek symbol upsilon) = specific volume
