### Pipe Flow Rate and Velocity Calculator

**Fluid Flow Design and Engineering **

Calculator will determine Pipe Flow Rate and Velocity required based on Head Loss, h_{L}, and Frictional Pressure Drop, DP_{f}, for given flow rate, Q, pipe diam., D, pipe length, L, pipe roughness, e, and fluid properties, r & m.

NOTE: This is an iterative calculation, because an assumed value of Q is used to start the
calculations. If the final calculated value of Q is different from the assumed value, then the
assumed value of Q should be replaced with the calculated value of Q, leading to a new
calculated value for Q. This should be repeated as many times as necessary to get the
calculated value for Q to be the same as the assumed value. This iteration typically converges
rather rapidly.

This spreadsheet shows only the final assumed and calculated values of Q (when they are equal).
If the initial assumed value of Q was 1.5 cfs, then subsequent calculated and assumed values
for Q, leading to the final solution are as follows:

Assumed Q, cfs |
Calculated Q, cfs |

1.5 |
0.85 |

0.85 |
0.83 |
