Flow through fittings


The object of this experiment is:-


         1. To measure the pressure drop in the straight section of smooth, rough and fitting as a function of flow rate.

         2. To calculate Reynolds number and fanning friction factor using measured flow rate and pressure drop.

         3. To calculate roughness parameter using calculated experimental fanning friction factor.

         4. To understand the effect of Reynolds number and roughness on friction factor.
