Factors Influencing Flow in Large Conduits

Task Force on Flow in Large Conduits of the Committee on Hydraulic Structures, ASCE

Serial Information: Journal of the Hydraulics Division, 1965, Vol. 91, Issue 6, Pg. 123-152

Document Type: Journal Paper


Problems associated with flow in large conduits are examined, with emphasis on head losses. The several approaches to estimating friction losses in lined, unlined, and partly lined conduits are considered, together with recent prototype data. Similar treatment is given for secondary or minor losses. Sections on organic growths and deposits and on air binding phenomena are also included. An extensive bibliography is provided.
