Description / Abstract:

Presents the information needed to design and analyze piping systems With its detailed coverage of pressure drop and other phenomena related to fluid flow within pipes, Pipe Flow enables readers to design and analyze the piping systems needed to support a broad range of industrial operations, distribution systems, and power plants. Throughout the book, the authors demonstrate how to accurately predict and manage pressure loss while working with a variety of piping systems and piping components. Pipe Flow draws together and reviews the growing body of experimental and theoretical research on fluid flow in piping and its components, including important loss coefficient data gathered from various flow configurations. The book is divided into three parts: Part I sets forth the essential methodology required to solve pipe flow problems. It begins with a discussion of the fundamental physical properties of fluids and the nature of fluid flow and ends with a method to assess the uncertainty associated with pipe flow calculations. Part II presents consistent and reliable loss coefficient data for a wide selection of piping components. Experimental test data and published formulas are examined, integrated, and organized into broadly applicable equations. The results are presented in straightforward tables and diagrams. Part III examines flow phenomena that affect the performance of piping systems, including cavitation and flow-induced vibration. Sample problems and their solutions are provided throughout the book, demonstrating how core concepts are applied in practice. In addition, references and further reading sections enable readers to explore all the topics in greater depth. With its clear explanations, Pipe Flow is recommended as a textbook for engineering students and as a reference for professional engineers who need to design, operate, and troubleshoot piping systems. Pipe Flow employs the English system of units as well as the International System (or SI).
