Webinar: Energy losses at structures

Understanding energy losses associated with the contraction and expansion of water flow

Energy losses occur as water is forced into and out of constrictions, causing it to speed up, slow down, form circulations and generally flow in rapidly varying directions and speeds. These sudden changes in velocity (either in magnitude and/or direction) generate large-scale turbulence that dissipates energy as heat. Learn the 1D and 2D structure loss theory from the premier industry expert on the subject.
