Handbook of Hydraulic Resistance

Resistance to flow is an important engineering subject. It is applicable to every branch of engineering where flows of liquids and gases take place. The importance of exact and true values of flow resistance is, primarily, a question of determining the pumping or power requirements for any apparatus or, eventually, for the entire plant involved in the motion of fluid. Needless to say, energy requirements are equivalent to the size of the funding capital, or operational, costs and are therefore o
