Closed Conduit Hydraulics – Bernoulli Equation

The Bernoulli Equation is used to analyze flow in closed pipe systems and is one of the most used equations in hydraulics (that I can remember!).

The base form of the equation relates energy between two or more points in a system. I think it is easier to remember and use in terms of head loss(ft or m).

$$ h_f = \frac{V_1^2}{2g}+\frac{p_1}{\rho g} + z_1 = \frac{V_2^2}{2g}+\frac{p_2}{\rho g} + z_2 $$ Click here to continue reading
