Coefficient

Performs head losses calculations in well-rounded inlets. There are two options:

Given the flow and the well-rounded inlet diameter, calculates the corresponding head loss.

$h_f = k. \frac{U^2}{2g}$

Given the well-rounded inlet diameter, calculates the head losses coeficients corresponding to the expressions:

- k applicable to the expression:
$h_f = k. \frac{U^2}{2g}$
- kQ applicable to the expression:
$h_f = k_Q. Q^2$
