Homework Help: Pipework Networks (Hardy cross method)

  1. Nov 30, 2011 #1
    Hi everyone, I have a 2nd year fluid mechanics question!

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I'm having trouble gripping what this question is looking for:

    Explain and Discuss the rationale implications of assuming that the head loss in each section of the pipe network is proportional to the square of the flow rate?

    2. Relevant equations
    head loss equation, H(loss) = R * m^2
    where R=resistance in the pipe and m=mass flow rate

    If you know fluid mechanics any help would be greatly appreciated!
