Head. The pressure head represents the flow energy of a column of fluid whose weight is equivalent to the pressure of the fluid. The sum of the elevation head, velocity head, and pressure head of a fluid is called the total head. Thus, Bernoullis equation states that the total head of the fluid is constant.

The “head” form of the Engineering Bernoulli Equation is obtained by dividing the energy form throughout by the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity, g . for a pump, the head developed by a pump p h is always positive. h h g = = .

## What does head mean in fluid mechanics?

Definition of head and pressure Head is the height given by the pump to the fluid and it is measured in meters of liquid column [m.l.c.] or simply indicated in meters [m]. The given head is fluid independent: different fluids. with different specific gravities are all lifted at the same height.

## What is head in a pipe?

Water (like any viscous fluid) flowing through a pipe experiences a loss in pressure due to friction. We can express this pressure loss in terms of a loss of head, where head is the vertical drop through which the fluid flows.

## What is the equation for head?

Δh express head - the height difference of a column of fluid of specific weight - γ - required to give a pressure difference Δp = p2 - p1.

Static head measures the total vertical distance that a pump raises water. Subtract the elevation of the center line of the pump from the elevation of the discharge point of the water to determine the static discharge. Add static lift and static discharge to obtain the total static head.

## How do you calculate static?

The formula to calculate the static friction is given as: Static Friction = Normal Force x Static Friction coefficient. Static friction = 60 N.

## What is the unit of piezometric head?

Hydraulic head or piezometric head is a specific measurement of liquid pressure above a vertical datum. It is usually measured as a liquid surface elevation, expressed in units of length, at the entrance (or bottom) of a piezometer.
