APPENDIX VII

The coefficient of contraction varies from unity, when the
areas of the two passages are the same, to 0.83, when the area of
the smaller passage is 0.01 of the area of the larger passage.
This slightly increases the pressure required, but ordinarily a
large margin is available to cover this increase. The loss of
pressure due to changes of direction may be expressed by the
formula,

in which r is a function of the angle through which the stream is
deflected. The following values are given by Weisbach for short
bends in pipe:

Angular change a =    20        40        45
r = 0.046    0.139    0.188

60
0.364

80   90
0.740 0.984

v= velocity in meters per second;
2g = gravitational constant =2X9.81.

When the loss of pressure clue to directional changes is desired
in inches of water column, the formula is

in which v = velocity in feet per second ;
20 = 2X32.2;
Aj = weight per cubic foot of gas in motion at t.
The losses, due to directional changes of 180 in the valve and
90 in the flues each side of the valve, are approximately from two
to four times as great as the loss due to restricted valve area.
For this reason, changes of diameter of valve of 6 in (150 mm)
or so have a comparatively small effect upon operation. These
losses vary with the square of the velocity in the valve and the
flues. Many furnaces are, undoubtedly, choked by the small area
of the valves used, and much operating trouble is doubtless due
to lack of consideration of these details.
A valve small enough to choke the furnace is an expensive
luxury, as it exacts its toll every minute the furnace is working.
Added chimney height or forced draft must be provided to over-
come its resistance. There is very little doubt that the erratic
working of some furnaces with different weather conditions is
