Hello, everyone. I have very little experience as a design engineer. I have worked mostly in project management and supervision but in a recent project we were a junior process engineer short and it was decided that I would have to do.
I would rather not go into much detail. Suffice it to say I am required to determine the flowrate at the delivery point of a natural gas pipeline considering that the pressure drop across the pipeline is actually greater than the inlet pressure. From a calculation perspective the calculations would simply not converge. In reality the natural gas would arrive at the delivery point but at an irregular rate and at a much lower velocity than required. These rates are the ones I need to estimate.
I don't need a detailed answer, just a general idea as to how to employ the familiar equations to fit this unfamiliar situation.
Thanks in advance,
