The object of this paper is to furnish the engineer with reliable data on the friction factors to be used in computing the pressure losses for turbulent flow in smooth curved pipes. The empirical formulas proposed, backed by theoretical considerations, appear to define the influence of curvature upon the law of resistance with satisfactory accuracy.
