Document Type: Journal Paper


Study to determine friction coefficients for flow in 3, 5 and 7 ft diam corrugated metal pipes by measurement of head losses and velocity distribution for several discharges in each test pipe to show relationship between friction coefficients and absolute roughness; results are presented together with recommended values of friction and roughness coefficients.
