Is there an analytical expression to compute pressure drop in a circular pipe?
Hello @Kremella ,
For an incompressible, laminar flow through a circular pipe, one can calculate the pressure drop using the Hagen-Poiseuille equation which is given below
del_P = (8 * mu * L * Q) / (pi * R^4)
del_P - pressure drop [Pa]
mu - dynamic viscosity [Pa-s]
L - pipe length [m]
Q - volumetric flow rate [m^3/s]
R - pipe radius [m]
