I am trying to figure out the best way to input minor headloss coefficients 'k' (bends, expansion, contraction etc.) into Mike Urban. What would be the best minor headloss solution to use in Mike Urban? Can I input 'k' directly into Mike Urban or do I have to translate it to a Mike Urban's local loss coefficient?
I tried using 'Mean Energy Approach' with 'Total HLC' as loss coefficient. I applied the 'k' value directly as the loss coefficient. However, results were not matching hand calculations.
Thank you for the assistance. Please let me know if I am missing anything. Saurabh
