Total Head

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

total headTotal head is the sum of the discharge flange and the sum of the suction flange.

Total Head Formula

\(\large{ h_t = \left( h_{dg} + h_{dv}   \right) \;-\;  \left( h_{sg} + h_{sv}   \right)   }\)

Where:

\(\large{ h_t }\) = total head or height

\(\large{ h_{dg} }\) = discharge gauge head

\(\large{ h_{dv} }\) = discharge velocity head

\(\large{ h_{sg} }\) = suction gauge head

\(\large{ h_{sv} }\) = suction velocity head
