Abstract : In this experiment,we were able to estimate the head losses in different sorts of valves and piping connections assembled in two separate hydraulic pipes circuits .Experimental values of loss coefficient (K),the relation between friction coefficient (f)and Reynolds number for a straight pipe,the relation between flow rate (Q)and head loss(h L )were found. Their theoretical values were calculated and compared to the experimental values.For instance,,the experimental relation (F= 0.4164Re -.4009 ) was compared with the literature value to produce an error % of( 406%)forb & 60% form.The value of K for gate valve was 0.59 and the error was 195%, the K value for globe valve was 3.5 and the error was 56% and we get the result from tables 1 to 6 And from graph 1 to 4. Introduction : In chemical processes, a lot of pipes connections are involved to carry the treated fluids. During fluid transfer,a pressure loss exists due to the change in the flow phenomena such as, a change in pipes diameter or flow direction which cause a resistance of fittings or valves to let the fluid pass smoothly.Pressure loss in pipe circuit is sorted into one due to the viscous resistance throughout the whole system and another due to fitting and pointed effects .The overall loss is the sum of both.So,we can say the total loss can be different than the sum of the losses of the separate components.By conducting this experiment, we’ll be able to find the pressure losses across to different systems .Also, for the straight pipe portion, the relations (f Vs Re)and(Q Vs h L ) will be generated. Theoretical Background : For an incompressible fluid flowing through a pipe the continuity eq. (Q=V 1 A 1 =V 2 A 2 ) is applicable . The head loss in constant diameter straight pipe can be calculated from the expression: (h L = 2f LV 2 / gd ),while f is the friction factor = f (Re,roughness). The head loss that is caused by a sudden expansion can obtained from the equation: [h L = (V 1 - V 2 ) 2 /2g],while the loss due to a sudden contraction is obtained from : [h L = KV 2 2 /2g ]and K= f (A 2 /A 1 ,Re).

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
