Fluid velocity head

  1. Jul 13, 2007 #1

    Does anyone know where does the velocity head (the v2/2g term in the Bernoulli eqn.) fits in when designing a piping system? i.e, what useful practical information can one have by calculating the velocity head?

    The velocity head is used for determination of losses due to things like valves and bends, entrances and exits, etc...
