Rational Approximation for Solving an Implicitly Given Colebrook Flow Friction Equation

Article OPEN
Praks, Pavel; Brkić, Dejan;

International audience; The empirical logarithmic Colebrook equation for hydraulic resistance in pipes implicitly considers the unknown flow friction factor. Its explicit approximations, used to avoid iterative computations, should be accurate but also computationally e... View more
