Area = π r²I need to find the area of fluid in a sewer pipe.
The pipe is 225mm in diameter. The depth of fluid in the pipe is 180mm.
Can anyone help please? The dam thing is robbing my river of its flow.
If you're going to use that calculator then you need to set r=112.5 and H=45. You then take away the answer from the area of the complete circle and hey presto you get the answer given in post 3Last calc in the page ( radius of 112 and height of 180 ), you are trying to calculate the area of a segment.
Online calculator: Circular segment
Correct. Thanks. My flow reader says 0.98. I'm told it reads in meters. I'm expecting the answer to be between 5 and 20l/s.Do you not need a time element, to discover how much water is being removed?
If the pipe is 225mm and full up to 180mm but sealed at both ends no water is being taken.
