Economic Pipe Sizing Using the Generaux Equation

The Economic Pipe Sizing model implements the well- known Generaux Equation which aims to calculate the most cost effective flow velocity through pipelines from a total cost of ownership perspective. Larger diameter pipes will result in lower velocities and therefore lower pressure losses and hence less pumping costs. However larger pipes are more expensive to purchase, install, operate and maintain. The Generaux equation aims to account for all these competing costs and optimise the fluid velocity accordingly.
