PRESSURE DROP CALCULATION FOR A COMPLEX GEOMETRIC FLOW RESTRICTION OF A SINGLE PHASE FLUID

A detailed presentation is made of a new method of calculating pressure drop through complex geometric restrictions. On a basis of energy loss per pound of fluid, equations are derived for pressure loss. The division of the total flow into multiple streams and a summation of energy loss in each stream in order to obtain the total pressure loss is utilized by the models.
