FM-1849-13 Energy Losses In Pipe Bends & Fittings

This apparatus is used to observe and measure the losses in the pipes, fittings and valves. Some part of energy is lost during flow mainly due to the friction between the walls of piping. The loss is likely to increase near bends and other fitting elements as flow is disturbed at these locations from laminar to partially turbulent flow.
