I am trying to design a water distribution system which basically consists of a horizontal pipe (dia 300mm) with 6 vertical outlets. I know the total flow rate required and that the flow out of each pipe must be equal. how do i determine the diameters of the pipes? I know that I can use continuity (Q=uA) but I'm not sure how to relate the velocity in the horizontal pipe just before the outlet with the velocity of the water in the actual outlet.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Hope that all makes sense! Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks
