Friction factor in rectangular channels

I've come across several published literatures on science direct and engineering village along the topic of 'heat transfer in rib-turbulated internal cooling passages' where they refer to friction factor as: f=ΔpD/2ρLu^2.
From basic fluid mechanics, I would have thought that given: Δp=f(L/D)(ρu^2)/2, friction factor 'f' should be f=(2ΔpD)/(ρLu^2)?? i.e. the '2' should be a numerator rather than denominator.
Am I missing something here???
