## What do you mean of coefficient of discharge?

**the ratio of the actual discharge to the ideal discharge**, i.e., the ratio of the mass flow rate at the discharge end of the nozzle to that of an ideal nozzle which expands an identical working fluid from the same initial conditions to the same exit pressures.

## What affects discharge coefficient?

Discharge coefficient has been shown to **reduce with increasing wave amplitude and wave time period**. Ingress and egress of floodwater has been modelled using the mean discharge coefficient during the flood.

## What is the coefficient of discharge for a Venturi meter?

The effective discharge coefficient for venturi meters ranges from **0.9 to about unity** (Streeter, 1951; American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 1983) with turbulent flow, and it varies with diameter ratio of throat to pipe.

## Is discharge coefficient a constant?

Unlike the flow coefficient, **discharge coefficient is dimensionless and almost constant value for any diameter of a single model**. ... For the same high of fluid in the reservoir, higher is the discharge coefficient, higher is the flow rate, therefore the reservoir can be voided at shorter time.

## Why coefficient of discharge is always less than 1?

Coefficient of discharge (C_{d}): It is the ratio of actual discharge to theoretical discharge. As in a pipe, frictional losses are presents therefore **Q _{actual}** will always be less than Q

_{theoretical}. Its value is always less than 1.

## Why do the discharge coefficients differ from unity?

The discharge coefficient differs from unity due **to the nonuniformity of flow parameters (such as Mach number)** at the nozzle exit and presence of boundary layer (viscous effect).

## What is the maximum value of coefficient of discharge?

0.61 to 0.79. **0.72 to 0.89**.

## Why is the discharge coefficient important?

This parameter is useful for **determining the irrecoverable losses associated** with a certain piece of equipment (constriction) in a fluid system, or the "resistance" that piece of equipment imposes upon the flow.

## What is the practical importance of coefficient of discharge and coefficient of velocity?

The coefficients of velocity and discharge are **necessary to accurately predict flow rates from orifices**.

## Why discharge coefficient is high in Venturi meter than orifice meter?

In **Venturi meter losses are less** so coefficient of discharge is higher whereas in orifice meter due to no convergent and divergent cones there are more losses and hence its coefficient of discharge is less.In venturi meter losses are low due to steamline shape of the diffuser and the pressure gradient is not abrupt as ...Nov 16, 2017
