Flow rate and available head relation

  1. Jun 29, 2012 #1
    It is stated that as volumetric flow rate increses the available head decreases. Can anybody explain this sentence?

    The statement has to be put into context, but generally it means that there is an irreversible pressure drop through piping or other conduit which increases as flow rate increases.
