Mean Flow Velocity

This module calculates the mean flow velocity of a fluid flowing inside a pipe/pipeline. It must be noticed that velocity of fluid particles are not equal at a pipe cross-section. However, it can be assumed that there is an average velocity value with respect to the flow.

i.e: 500 m3/hr or 100 liter/s

i.e: 32 in or 100 mm

i.e: 0.5 in or 20 mm
