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 nokogram pressure drop caused by friction.
It is used in the design of water pipe systems  such as fire sprinkler systems water supply networksand irrigation systems. The Hazen—Williams equation has the advantage that the coefficient C is not a function of the Reynolds numberbut it has the disadvantage that it is only valid nokogram water.
Also, it does not account for the temperature or viscosity of the water. Henri Pitot discovered that the velocity of a fluid was proportional to the square root of its head in the early 18th century.

The variable C expresses the proportionality, but the value of C is not a constant. The Darcy-Weisbach equation was difficult to use because the friction hazfn was difficult to estimate.
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. 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.
Typical C factors used in design, which take into account some increase in roughness as pipe ages are as follows: When used to calculate the pressure drop using the US customary units system, the equation is: When used to calculate the head loss with the International System of Unitsthe equation becomes: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
