# The Darcy-Weisbach equation

Weisbach first proposed the equation we now know as the Darcy-Weisbach formula or
Darcy-Weisbach equation:

hf = f (L/D) x (V^2/2g)
where:
f = friction factor
L = length of pipe work (m)
D = inner diameter of pipe work (m)
v = velocity of fluid (m/s)
g = acceleration due to gravity (m/s)

## Determination of the friction factor used in the Darcy -Weishbach equation

A) Smooth pipe / laminar flow
f =64/Re

B)

Re <2100

## Friction factor determination ( for turbulent flow )

Numerical resolutions:

Colebrook's equation

## 1/f^1/2= -2 *log10(eps/3.7/D+2.51 /Re/f^1/2)

fn+1=fn-F(fn)/F'(fn)
equations :
F(f)= 1/f^1/2+2* log10(eps/3.7/D+2.51 /Re/f^1/2) =0
a)

b)

## F'(f)=-1/2*f^-3/2 *( 1+2 *2.51/ Re/ln(10)/(eps/3.7/D+2.51 /Re*f^-1/2))
