However, the Hazen-Williams method is very popular, especially among civil engineers, since its friction coefficient C is not a function of velocity or pipe diameter. When used to calculate the head loss with wwilliams International System of Unitsthe equation becomes: Henri Pitot discovered that the velocity of a fluid was proportional to the square root of its head in the early 18th century.

Hazen–Williams equation

Hazen-Williams is simpler than Darcy-Weisbach for calculations where you are solving for flowrate dischargevelocity, or diameter. Research, and Software, Ltd.

Head Loss, h f ft: It is used in the design of water pipe systems jomogram such as fire sprinkler systems[2] water supply networksand irrigation systems.

The Hazen-Williams method is valid for water flowing at ordinary temperatures of 40 to 75 o F 4 to 25 o C through pressurized pipes. When used to calculate the pressure drop using the US customary units system, the equation is: Pipe Diameter, D ft: Major loss h f is the energy or head loss expressed in length units – think of it as energy per unit weight of fluid due to friction between the moving fluid and the pipe wall.


The Hazen—Williams equation is an empirical relationship which relates the flow of water in a pipe with the physical properties of the pipe and the pressure drop caused by friction. Retrieved 6 December Standard for wikliams Installation of Sprinkler Systems, pageeqn Retrieved from wiliams https: The variable C expresses the proportionality, but the value of C is not a constant.

Typical C factors used in design, which take into account some increase in roughness as pipe ages are as follows: It is also known as friction loss.

The Hazen—Williams equation npmogram the advantage that the coefficient C is not a function of the Reynolds numberbut it has the disadvantage that it is only willias for water. Hazen-Williams friction loss calculator for water flow in pipes. The Darcy-Weisbach method is generally considered more accurate than the Hazen-Williams method. The Darcy-Weisbach equation was difficult to use because the friction factor was difficult to estimate. A result of adjusting the exponents is that the value of C appears more like a constant over a wide range of the other parameters.

Table of Hazen-Williams Coefficients. The general form of the equation relates the mean velocity of water in a pipe with the geometric properties of the pipe and slope of the energy line.
