Calculate head

Calculate diameter

Calculate length

Calculate roughness

Calculate flow

Calculate the head loss in water flowing through pipes using the Darcy-Weisbach formula and the Churchill correlation for the friction factor calculation.

There are five calculation possibilities:

- Find the head loss
- Find the diameter
- Find the length
- Find the internal roughness of the pipe
- Find the flow

Stretched steel | 0.015 |

Weld steel | 0.045 |

Galvanized steel | 0.15 |

Rusted steel (corrosion) | 0.15 - 4 |

New cast iron | 0.25 - 0.8 |
