The velocity head plus all frictional losses and the static head.

Related Terms

ACCELERATION

The rate of change of velocity, as a function of time. Expressed in m/s2.

ANEMOMETER

An instrument for measuring the velocity of a fluid.

TERMINAL VELOCITY

The highest sustained air stream velocity existing in the mixed air path at the end of the throw.

PARTICLE EROSION

Occurs when fluid-entrained particles moving at high velocity pass through orifices or impinge on metering surfaces or sharp angle turns.

CENTRIFUGAL PUMP

Pump which produces fluid velocity and converts it to pressure head.

PARTICLE IMPINGEMENT EROSION

A particulate wear process where high velocity, fluid- entrained particles are directed at target surfaces.

SHEAR STRESS

Frictional force overcome in sliding one layer of fluid along another, as in any fluid flow. The shear stress of a petroleum oil or other Newtonian fluid at a given temperature varies directly with shear rate (velocity). The ratio between shear stress and shear rate is constant; this ratio is termed viscosity of a Newtonian fluid, the greater the shear stress as a function of rate of shear. In a non-Newtonian fluid, such as a grease or a polymer-containing oil (e.g. multi-grade oil) - shear stress is not proportional to the rate of shear. A non-Newtonian fluid may be said to have an apparent viscosity, a viscosity that holds only for the shear rate (and temperature) at which the viscosity is determined.

SLIP VELOCITY

The phase velocity difference between two phases.

MULTIPHASE FLOW VELOCITY

The flow velocity of a multiphase flow. It may also be defined by the relationship (Multiphase volume flow rate / Pipe cross-section).

PHASE VELOCITY

The velocity of one phase of a multiphase flow at a cross-section of a conduit. It may also be defined by the relationship (Superficial phase velocity * Phase area fraction).
