Flow rate versus pressure drop relations for liquid flow in pipes are well established for the case of pipes running full. However, these relations are not applicable for pipes that run partially filled. This article summarizes an experimental study to determine criteria for establishing full-pipe flow in horizontal, open-ended pipes and submerged, downward-flow vertical pipes.
