LAWS OF RESISTANCE

MAIN FEATURES

  • Selection of an unlimited number of pipes for each analysis
  • Description of each pipe layout (cross section shape, cross section dimensions, slope, etc.) and characteristics (wall roughness, etc.)
  • Investigations of an unlimited number of formulations for each analysis
  • Definition of non-dimensional quantities (cross section shape, relative roughness, Reynolds number, friction factor)
  • Definition of non-dimensional functions (implicit, explicit, polynomials, etc.)
  • Computation of friction factor (Darcy, Fanning) according to different theories by several authors (Prandtl, Prandtl Nikuradse, Colebrook White, Rouse, Henderson, etc.)
  • Comparison of results with available field data
  • Visualisation of results
  • Suitable for designing and testing

OPTIONS FOR IO OPERATIONS

  • Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet Files (xlsx)

OPTIONS FOR GRAPHICS

  • Standard Image Formats (jpeg, tiff)
  • Portable Document Format (pdf)

TEST CASES

Figure 1 shows how friction factors are typically related to Reynolds number and relative pipe roughness.
