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.
