What is Pipe flow system??
Pipe Flow System
• A pipe is a closed conduit, generally of circular cross-section, used to carry water or any other fluid.
• When the pipe is running full, the flow is underpressure. But if the pipe is not running full (as in case ofsewer pipes, culverts etc), the flow is not underpressure.
• In such case the atmospheric pressure exists inside thepipe. We will discuss the flow of pipes under pressureonly
Different Formulae for Pipe flow
1. Chezy’s Formula
2. Manning’s Formula
3. Kutter’s Formula
4. Bazin’s Formula
5. Hazen William’s Formula
(All these can be applied to both pipe flow and open channels).
