Partially FULL Pipe Flow Calculator and Equations
This engineering calculator determines the Flow within a partially full pipe (&e1/2 full using the Manning equation. This calculator can also be used for uniform flow in a pipe, but the Manning roughness coefficient needs to be considered to be variable, dependent upon the depth of flow.
r = D/2
h = 2r - y y/D
R = A/P
Q = (1.49/n)(A)(R 2/3 )(S1.2 )
V = Q/A
Equation used for n/nfull = 1.25 - ( y/D - 0.5) * 0.5 (for 0.5 ≤ y/D ≤ 1 )
