Chapter 0 – Problem 0.10

0.10 In the previous questions 0.8 and 0.9, the friction headloss between points A and B was calculated as the difference in total energy per unit weight between points A and B, or the difference in energy grades between points A and B, i.e., ΔH = EA – EB. Under what circumstances could the difference in hydraulic grades (instead of the energy grades) be used to compute the friction headloss between any two points in a pipeline carrying steady-state flow?
