Pressure loss coefficients for T-pieces at low Reynolds numbers, based on a Neural Network model and experimental data

Philip Ohnewein

This Matlab toolbox contains 4 Matlab functions that serve to calculate pressure loss coefficients (zeta values) for 4 different cases of T-pieces (one function for each case). The pressure loss coefficients are relevant for T-pieces (junctions) of round pipes, and are especially interesting for low Reynolds numbers where hardly any reliable information can be found in literature (as of 2015).
