Minor losses for Isolation Valves

Product(s): WaterCAD, WaterGEMS
Area: Calculations


I've entered a minor loss coefficient for an isolation valve but the calculated minor loss in the associated pipe is zero.


As of version, headloss resulting from a minor loss coefficient on an isolation valve is included in the "Headloss (Friction)" result field in the associated pipe. This is noted in the Description field seen at the bottom of the Property Grid when selecting the "Headloss (Minor)" or "Headloss (Friction)" property of a pipe.
