Minor Head Loss Calculator

Posted by Dinesh on

Use this simple hydraulics and waterworks calculator to calculate minor head loss in piping system. The head of water that must be supplied to overcome the loss of head through fittings and valves is the minor head loss.


hm = K × (V2 / (2 × g))

  • K - head loss coefficient
  • g - acceleration due to gravity 9.81 m/s2
  • V - velocity of fluid
  • hm - minor head loss
