Hello guys, I'm a mechanical engineer fresh out the college.

I'm designing a liquid transferring device, and really really need some advice/help.

So, my device right now has one13mm diameter inletthat divides intotwelve 4mm diameter “tubes”which are77mmlong, and the each tube haveeight 3mm diameter outletswhich are9mmapart.

Simply put, there is1 big 13mm inletthat leads to96 small 3mm outlets.

My problem right now is that I don’t know where to start off to find the optimal inlet pressure/diameter as well as the optimal outlet diameter in order to transfer/distribute water throughout the device evenly. The outlet pressure doesn't matter for my application, but it just needs to dispense the water evenly throughout all the outlets.

How could I approach this problem? Am I just missing a really simple point, or could it be a pretty tough problem? I’m thinking that the first thing that needs to be solved is the optimal pressure needed in order to push the water through 77mm “tube” all the way up to the last (8th) hole.

Thank you so much for your time!
