Head loss in symmetrical bifurcations Ahmed, Sirajuddin
Five symmetrical wye branches of conventional and spherical types were tested for hydraulic losses under symmetrical and unsymmetrical flow conditions. Results are presented graphically. A wide variation in loss factor was observed depending on the type of wye and on flow condition. For a given wye the minimum wye loss coefficient does not necessarily occur under conditions of symmetrical flow.
