Hi,

I found this formula in Carrier Handbook,
delta p = 0.03*f*(L/d^1.22)*(V/1000)^1.82

delta p = friction loss (in. wg)
f = interior surface roughness (0.9 for galvanized duct)
L = length of duct (ft)
d = duct diameter (in.), equivalent diameter for rectangular ductwork
V = air velocity (fpm)

Here is the problem, I could not find the interior surface roughness, f for concrete duct at anywhere else. May I know where does this formula derived from? I only can find Darcy, Colebrook, and Altshul-Tsal Equations on the internet. I need the interior surface roughness, f for concrete duct.

Thanks

Concretes absolute roughness factor is .3 to 3MM.
Divide e(absolute roughness) by pipe diameter to get relative roughness factor.

In managing certain events to make it more creative in achieving things to make a perfect views to enhance a good inputs for the friction that is being loss.
