Thanks in advance.

Change in velocity between the inlet and outlet should give you an idea of the head loss.
That and drop in total pressure - drop in static pressure should also tell you how much your head loss is.

Thank you Luke. Did you mean (drop in total pressure-drop in static pressure)?

What I have done is ,

hloss=(z1-z2)+ (V1^2-V2^2)/(2*g)
since my bc at inlet and outlet were pressure inlet and pressure outlet respectively.

Is it okay?
