The calculation of the friction factor involved in the Darcy-Weisbach equation has a key role in the accurate assessment of distributed head losses. For the turbulent flow regime, this friction factor was mathematically expressed in the form of the Colebrook-White (C-W) equation, widely accepted by engineers and scientists. Nevertheless, the C-W equation is an implicit one and must be solved using numerical methods. This is a major disadvantage for the average engineer, who always prefers andoi:10.2478/ouacsce-2019-0008 fatcat:ozaekxh7vfc6bhv67j6ekxqubu
