# Obtaining the characteristics of an equivalent pipe (L E , A E , V E , D E , and KE) to represent a.

Obtaining the characteristics of an equivalent pipe (LE,

AE, VE, DE, and KE) to represent a compound

piping (i.e. pipes connected in series or in parallel) depends on the imposed

constraint. In this problem, you are asked to develop a table similar to Table

IIIb.4.3.

a) First, for several pipes connected in series, find the

characteristics of an equivalent pipe using the following constraints LE =

_Li, (_Pskin)E = (__Pskin)i,

and (_Pfittings-valves)E = (__Pfitting-valves)i.

b) Next, consider several pipes connected in parallel. Find

the characteristics of an equivalent pipe using the
