Purpose of use
For teaching purposes:

--> comparison of solution obtained by means of Moody's Diagram and iterative solution of Colebrook - White equation.

--> so that my students can calculate faster the pressure drop in buildings instalations

Thanks for the calculator!!

Maybe not too bad, but the solution given for Re < 2000 is not equal to 64/Re. I know it is not necessary to use the Colebrook - White equation in this case, but anyway, it should give an accurate solution, isn't it?

If the user selects a mode other that 2.51, then the display of the mode would be good. But it only shows the 2.51 mode.

Also you said you were using 3.71 where I had emailed the "Rr/3.7", but you were using the 3.71 mode.

Today someone asked for the "9.35" mode. and I showed them how, but the screen showed the 2.51 mode, and they wanted to see that equation.

We have changed to be displayed the formula corresponding to the selected mode.

I tried the Newton compute again, and noticed I could set it for 50 digits like I did.
I did 3 random Rr and Rn and found out that the Newton gets the same answer as I do for 50 digits.
I checked the left and right for each and found they have the same "checked" values also.

I want the Public to learn my easy and true solution, then they could compute their own designs.

The Newton method is fair, but not exactly right.

Here's my easy solution. It works in Excel for 15 digits. Your computer shows 50 digits and it proves I am right. Here's that Rn, and Rr solved

Rn=604133;
Rr=0.01002;
A=Rr/3.7;
B=2.51/Rn;
Loops=0;
D=3; do {X=-2*log(A+B*D);
Loops=Loops+1;
D=-2*log(A+B*X);} while (X<>D);
f=1/X/X;
Left=1/sqrt(f);
Right=-2*log(Rr/3.7+2.51/Rn/sqrt(f));
Loops;

Right;

right side of equation '5.1278615179514698534039181406746481344220332448845

Left=Right so it is proved right.

Thanks, Your computer helps me prove I am right.
from Keisan
We changed Rr/3.7 instead of Rr/3.71 in Colebrook-White Equation.
New results are the same as your results.
1/sqrt(f))=-2*log(Rr/3.7+2.51/Rn/sqrt(f))  Thank you for your questionnaire.
