BordaCarnot Equation
BordaCarnot equation is a empirical description of the mechanical loss energy losses of the fluid due to a sudden flow expansion. It describes how the total head losses due to the expansion. This equation is only valid for expansion, in the case of a contraction, the BordaCarnot Equation cannot be used as it would indicate that energy is created. The empirical loss coefficient, \(\large{\epsilon}\), is a number between 0 and 1. For an abrupt and wide expansion, \(\large{\epsilon}\) is equal to 1. For other instances, the value should be determined through empirical means.
