General Pipes conveying flow under the influence of a pressure gradient experience friction losses which are dependent on pipe roughness, flow regime (laminar or turbulent), and flow velocity. The two most prevalent models for quantifying friction loss in pipes are those due to Darcy and Weisbach and to Hazen and Williams. The Darcy-Weisbach model gives a dimensionally consistent formula which requires inputs about Reynolds number and pipe roughness. It is applicable to all fluids. The Hazen-Williams model leads to an empirical equation which yi…
