Fully Developed Pipe Flow Equations (Section 8-5, Ç engel and Cimbala) There are several empirical equations available to use in place of the Moody chart. The most important one (in fact, the equation with which the turbulent portion of the Moody chart is drawn) is: The Colebrook equation Note: This is log 10 , not the natural log, ln. Unfortunately, the Colebrook equation is implicit in f (since f appears on both sides of the equation, and the equation must be solved by iteration. An approximation to the Colebrook equation was created by Haaland, and is accurate to
