Results of investigation conducted at Hydraulics Laboratory of University of Wisconsin on energy loss in oil flow in straight, smooth pipes at line pressures up to 2000 psi and temperatures up to 120 F; flow was varied to produce change in Reynolds Number of 146 to 135,000 for range of atmospheric viscosities of 0.00003 to 0.0019 s1 per ft sec; application to hydraulic control circuits.
