The setup consists of 2 pipes of different diameters, which are connected in
parallel. Pressure tapings are provided on each pipe to measure the pressure
losses with the help of a Differential Manometer.
Control valves are fitted on each pipe, which enables to use one pipe at a
time for experiment. Present set-up is self-contained water re-circulating
unit, provided with a sump tank and a centrifugal pump etc. Flow control
valve And by-pass valve are fitted in water line to conduct the Experiment
on different flow rates. Flow rate of water is measured with the help of
measuring tank and stop watch. EXPERIMENTATION
To determine the losses due to fiction in pipes.
To determine the friction factor for Darcy Weisback equation.
