Comparison of Several Pipeline Flow Equation: Which One is The Most Conservative?

In this post, I want to share to you comparison of several pipeline flow equation. Some of you may already know that there are so many flow equations in pipeline. If you want to understand the details of each equation, I recommend you to check this book. I also use the book as reference in this post.

In general, each flow equation is function of gas flow rate, gas properties, pipeline diameter, pipeline length, and upstream and downstream pressure. There are eleven (11) flow equation described in the book. Read More
