Using conversion factor psi to meters/100m= 2.1430 See below**

** 1. psi to feet x2.307 gives feet of head loss per 100ft


2. multiply product by .3048m/ft to get meters of head lost per 100 feet
3. multiply that product by 3.048 to convert loss/100ft to loss/100m

Head Loss Calculator

Automatic Head Loss Calculator (Issue 1 20-02-03)


This spreadsheet allows the user to calculate accurately the velocity (m/s) and total frictional headloss (m) for pipes
of varying diameter, for a given flow rate (Lps) and pipe length.
Input data is marked in red

Combination Pipes Equation : Automatic Calculator (Issue 1 21-02-03)
This spreadsheet allows the user to determine the best combination of pipes of different diameters (in) in order to
burn off a stated frictional headloss (m), given the chosen pipe diameter (in), a total pipe length (m) and a flow rate
(Lps). Pipe and fitting costs can also be included to allow calculation of the best combination.
Typically the previous Head Loss Calculator Spreadsheet would be used to determine the minimum pipe diameter
which "burns off" a frictional headloss which is just above the required value. This diameter should be input into
this spreadsheet as the "Chosen Pipe Diameter" below. After input of the other variables this spreadsheet will give
the rounded 100m lengths of Mangera of the combination that is closest to the required frictional headloss. It quotes
both the cost of the combination (pesos) and the actual frictional headloss (m) of the combination. The value quoted
in blue is the exact length of the chosen diameter pipe that would give the correct frictional burn off in combination
with that particular diameter of pipe.
Input data is marked in red.

Total Pipe Length (m) = 700


Required Head Loss (m) = 40
Chosen Pipe Diameter (in) = 0.5
Chosen Pipe Head Loss (m/100m) = 15.56
Chosen Pipe Cost (Pesos/100m) = 100.00

The presence of the "Dia." term in a cell signifies that the chosen input data is the same as this diameter of pipe.
The presence of the "Error" term in a cell signifies that the resulting pipe length is less than zero or greater than the overall pipe length.
The presence of the "Range" term in a cell signifies that the input data is outside the parameters of the friction chart.
The presence of the "N/A" term in a cell signifies that this data is not applicable.
