Basic Pipe Hydraulics

Functions for basic hydraulic calculations related to water flow in circular pipes flowing full (under pressure). This includes friction loss calculations by solving the Darcy-Weisbach equation for head loss, flow or diameter, and plotting a Moody diagram. The Darcy-Weisbach friction factor is calculated using the Colebrook (or Colebrook-White equation), the basis of the Moody diagram, the original citation being Colebrook (1939) . The derivation of the Darcy-Weisbach equation and methods for its solution are outlined in many fluid mechanics texts such as Finnemore and Franzini (2002, ISBN:978-0072432022). This package is designed to work similarly to the 'iemisc' package, but with an emphasis on pipe flow.
