Crane Technical Paper No. 410 is the reference most used by facility and utility design engineers, plant engineers, and piping/HVAC consultants for mechanical (pressure) piping systems analysis.

Commercial software for PCs is available for performing the number-crunching for most parts of the Crane reference. I wrote my own program back in the early 1980s, combining the Crane differential pressure — liquid flowrate relationships and fitting loss data, Bernoulli's equation for solving system curve analysis, Colebrook's equation for calculating friction factor f, and miscellaneous adjunct utilities. I mention this because part of this topic includes a formula derivation made by myself,...
