1 8.5 Friction Losses in Non-Circular Conduits Many of the conduits that are used for conveying fluids are not circular in cross section. Although the details of the flows in such conduits depend on the exact cross-sectional shape, many round pipe results can be carried over, with slight modification, to flow in conduits of other shapes.

    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.
