pfcalc is a pipe friction calculator using the Darcy-Weisbach equation. gpfcalc is a Gtk front-end for pfcalc. Qpfcalc is a Qt front-end for pfcalc.
pfcalc stands for pipe friction calculator and is a CLI program that computes pressure drop in piping systems using the Darcy-Weisbach equation. The program is capable of computing minor and major pressure losses (pipe friction losses) for flow in pipes and ducts. The aim is to provide an open source alternative to similar proprietary software. The intended user base is made of those people working in the fields of mechanical and civil engineering, who need to estimate pressure drop in new or existing piping systems.
Data can be fed through command line arguments or can be read from a comma separated values file (csv). This is a text file that contains values separated by commas and can be exported from various spreadsheet programs. Every line is a data set that contains the following values, in this order: diameter, length, roughness, elevation, flow-rate, minor loss coefficient (K-factor), temperature. The program will read the file, make a calculation for every data set and print the result. Calculation results can be exported to a csv file that will contain a result per line, with values in this order: diameter, length, roughness, flow, temperature, velocity, Reynolds number, Darcy factor, hydrostatic pressure loss, minor pressure loss, major pressure loss.
