Bernoulli Loss

    "Bernoulli Loss"


    I am reading a fluid dynamics paper about dissipation due to turbulence in the fluid causing "Bernoulli loss". What exactly is meant by this? The Bernoulli principle concerns energy conservation. So, does Bernoulli loss simply refer to a loss of energy within the fluid (due to energy dissipation)?

    Re: "Bernoulli Loss"

    It means that when applying the Bernoulli equation to the fluid, you would need a head loss term to account for viscous dissipation because it is not covered by the standard Bernoulli equation. That isn't a very common term though.
