Aerospace Can sudden expansion loss coefficients be summed?

  1. Mar 10, 2009 #1
    I was wondering since I'm trying to figure out an equivalent loss coefficient for a manifold that has a specific geometry. I have several area sections and would like to know if I can just add up the resulting loss coefficients from one section to the other.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
