    Multi-Suction Point Pipe Flow

    By "assume a pump suction pressure", are you referencing what would be known as the NPSHR for a specific pump? I think this concept of suction pressure is where I am stuck. Below I am showing two examples: To evaluate example 1: Lets assume its a 6" pipe and the medium is water. By...

    Multi-Suction Point Pipe Flow

    If I a pump with a main suction header and 4 smaller branch connections of difference sizes. Lets say for this example we have (2) 3", (1) 1", and (1) 2". Also lets say our pump is requiring 20 gal/min. The flow rate of each branch would be proportional to the area of the pipe correct? flow =...

    Theoretical Pipe Flow

    I think I get what you are saying. It helps for me to think of fluids as molecules in instances like this so I am going to re-cap it like that. I believe what you are saying is that if we look at a molecule of water in turbulent flow, we know that not all the velocity of the molecule is in the...

    Theoretical Pipe Flow

    Hey guys, I am doing an internship and I have had some thoughts about fluid flow that have come up and I am having trouble fully grasping some concepts due to no one being able to thoroughly explain any answer that they might come up with. So I have a crude understanding of some fluid dynamics...
