Abstract

Energy is transported over long distances primarily by electric power transmission lines and by pipelines carrying gas or liquid fuel. Electric power engineers need to compare these two energy transmission methods, but often lack knowledge of fluid mechanics pre‐requisite to understanding pipeline transmission. This article provides a focused tutorial to provide the necessary background in the fluid mechanics of pipe flow.
