Question: Is there a handy way to determine if a horizontal pipe is running full if the flow rate is known?
Keywords: v1i13,horizontal,pipe,running,full,determine,equation
Answer: Generally speaking if Q/d2.5 is greater than or equal to about 10.2, then the pipe is said to full. In this case, Q is in GPM (U.S. Imperial gallons per minute) and d is in inches.Reference: Pocket Guide to Chemical Engineering, ISBN: 0884153118
