Does anyone know if it is possible to enter a friction coefficient or surface roughness in FloWizard? If not, how would you account for the increased losses associated with running say a smooth versus a cast iron pipe?
surface roughness is an optional item in CFX or Fluent.
it is not a real one but an equivalent sand size,
Remember, the roughness value should be smaller than the mesh height of first layer close to the wall.
For detailed definition related to surface roughness, SEE
NACA TM 1292 LAWS OF FLOW IN ROUGH PIPES
or other papers.
