If a pipe flowing with water enters a structure where the structure wall will stop the horizontal velocity of the flow and direct it downward (i.e a pipe in to a manhole with an outlet at a considerably lower elevation), how do you calculate the force exerted on the structure of that wall. I have found the equation Force = density of water * flow volume * change in velocity. Is this on the right track?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
