Total Discharge Head

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

Total discharge head is the total of the friction, pressure, and static discharge.

 

Total Discharge Head Formula

\(\large{ h_d =  h_{sd} + h_{pd} + h_{fd}     }\)   

Where:

 Units English SI
\(\large{ h_d }\) = total discharge head \(\large{ft}\) \(\large{m}\)
\(\large{ h_{fd} }\) = friction discharge head \(\large{ft}\) \(\large{m}\)
\(\large{ h_{sd} }\) = static discharge head \(\large{ft}\) \(\large{m}\)
\(\large{ h_{pd} }\) = surface discharge pressure \(\large{\frac{lbf}{in^2}}\) \(\large{Pa}\)
