Hazen-Williams is simpler to use than D’Arcy-Weisbach where The Hazen- Williams equation has narrow applicable ranges for Reynolds numbers and pipe. same as the H-W nomograph in the CERM. to solve several problems (example Friction head loss (ft H2O per ft pipe) in water pipes can be estimated with the empirical Hazen-Williams equation.

Hazen–Williams equation – Wikipedia
Why is it that when I try to solve problems using nomographs, the answers are typically errored signifigantly. I looked at problem 3. Ultimately, you are looking for velocity v for each pipe length for substitution back into the Energy Equation.
Velocity v cannot be determined from that nomograph you provided.
This nomograph has an axis column for determining velocity. You have to be really careful with nomographs and other charts. I just used the flow rates for each segment. Didn’t bother with velocities. Willizms lenghts are, and feet. You need to be a member in order to leave a comment.

Am I using this method incorrectly? Using these methods would be a huge time saver, but is this a lost cause? Share this post Link to post Share on other sites.
Posted January 31, Looking back, I can get ‘close’ to the head loss using the chart I provided. I think I introduce lots of error due to the long lenghts of each pipe segment.
My feeling is that nomographs would probably be ‘closer’ for shorter pipe lenghts. Thanks for the help.
