Loss Coefficients

  1. Jul 27, 2010 #1
    Hey I am designing a pipe system for a class and am required to calculate headloss. At one point in the design, a pipe splits into 4 smaller pipes and then these rejoin to recreate a pipe at the original pipe. I can't seem to find the loss coefficients associated with the quadfurcation and junction associated with this system. Anyone have the data for this?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Please read the rules on posting located at the top. This type of question goes in the homework section. :smile:

    You will have to perform some type of nodal analysis (e.g. Hardy-Cross Method) to solve your problem since this is a parallel flow.
