The design factor is determined for the type of pipe or tube used:
h = 10.67 q 1.85 / (c 1.85 d h 4.8655 ) (2)
h = head loss per unit pipe (m h2o /m pipe)
c = design coefficient determined for the type of pipe or tube - the higher the factor, the smoother the pipe or tube
q = flow rate (m 3 /s)
d h = inside hydraulic diameter (m)
Pressure drop in Pa can be calculated from the head loss by multiplying the head loss with the specific weight of water:
p = h γ
p = pressure loss (N/m2, Pa)
γ = specific weight (N/m 3 )
Specific weight of water at 4 oC is 9810 N/m 3 .
