Abstract

To designingpipe diameter, several flow resistance formulae are available in literature. Generally, these are relationships relating friction loss, relative roughness and Reynolds number. Here, an iterative procedure, based on the solution of a second order equation (standard approach), is presented. Then an effective and simple procedure (advanced approach) for designing circular pipes by means of the Colebrook-White transition formula is provided. Latter procedure is proven to be accurate in double precisionafter a limited number of iterative steps.
