Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

headSystem head is the difference between the total discharge head minus the total suction head.

 

System Head Formula

\(\large{ H =  h_d - h_s    }\)   

Where:

 Units English SI
\(\large{ H }\) = system head \(\large{ft}\) \(\large{m}\)
\(\large{ h_d }\) = total discharge head \(\large{ft}\) \(\large{m}\)
\(\large{ h_s }\) = total suction head \(\large{ft}\) \(\large{m}\)
