Abstract : It is the intent of the investigation to approach the problem of pressure loss in curved pipes from a fresh theoretical outlook and clarify the patterns of water flow and head pressure attenuation. The report treats the case where the radius of curvature of the bend is considerably greater than the radius of curvature of the pipe. Attempts in the past to treat pressure loss in turbulent flow by a simple parameter involving various radii and Reynolds number apparently have not been successful. It is that such a parameter actually exists and can be represented. This parameter can be used to express the pressure loss of a turbulent flow through a curved pipe by a simple equation. (Author)
