|This is the Darcy-Weisbach Friction Loss Equation:|
Energy losses for flow through ducts and pipes consist of major losses and minor losses. Major losses are due to friction between the moving fluid and the inside walls of the duct. Major losses are computed using the Darcy-Weisbach friction loss equation (which utilizes the Moody friction factor). Minor losses are due to fittings such as valves and elbows. In this case we assumed minor losses to be 0.02-ft.
