Line (hydraulic)

A hydraulic line is used to connect two hydraulic connectors. These may be either a simple hydraulic connection or a T-junction.

A hydraulic line is normally treated as an ideal connection, with no pressure drop being included in the simulation.

A frictional loss can be entered via the Physical model options. If you select Simple resistance, only the Hydraulic resistance parameter will be included in the simulation.

If you select Pipe model (Hagen-Poiseuille/Blasius), a complex empirical calculation is carried out using a model based on Hagen-Poiseuille for laminar flows and a model based on Blasius for turbulent flows, utilizing the Reynolds number and the wall surface roughness.
