I'm calculating C Factor of existing pipe in an operating water distribution system. I'm trying account my K losses, (fittings, other factors). I have an 8" inch Ductile Iron pipe and have about 17-1"inch corps tapped into the main throughout. The threads on these corps protrude in the DI pipe approximately an inch to 1/2 inch. How would one account for the resistance coefficient (K) for the 1-inch corp taps in my 8"DI pipe? If the inside liner looks like porcupine from the tapped service line connections this could be throwing my data off?
