Bernoulli Equation for Pipe Flow
This application simulates water flowing through a pipe with an inlet diameter of 5 cm. You can adjust the outlet height (i.e., change \( \Delta z \)), outlet pipe diameter, inlet gauge pressure, and inlet velocity using the sliders. You can toggle which variables are displayed by pressing “Fluid properties” or “Energy”. The outlet conditions are calculated using Bernoulli’s equation.
