Hello,
Let us assume a flow through straight pipe with air as fluid? We calculate the pressure drop for the same.
Now suddenly fluid changes from Air to Diesel or Lubrication Oil? Does it require any change in the formule of calculating the pressure drop if the flow changes from Laminar to turbulent?
Please elaborate.
Thank you.
