There is a numerical constant called the Orifice Coefficient of Flow or Coefficient of Discharge
, used in calculating fluid flow efficiency through a constriction.
Evaluation of the coefficient of discharge
is helpful in predicting the pressure losses across the orifice.

[A.sub.L] = [Q.sub.r] [square root of ([rho]/2[DELTA][P.sub.r]/[C.sub.d])] (2) Coefficient of Discharge
Orifice metering relies on the Reynolds Law of Similarity to predict the meter's coefficient of discharge
and control its measurement accuracy (Figure 1).
Effect of Number and Thickness of Vortex breaker on the coefficient of discharge
in shaft spillway, National Conference of Water, Soil, Plant Science and Agricultural Machinery in IAU Dezful Branch.
 investigated the coefficient of discharge
for a combined rectangular weir and semi-circular gate.
where: [Q.sub.gate] = discharge (spillway gate flow); [C.sub.d] = coefficient of discharge
, typically 0.5-0.7; w = vertical opening of gate; B = gate width; g = gravitational constant; and H = a head term.
In addition, the HBX does not need black box or signal conditioning due to linear coefficient of discharge
The filling patterns of various aluminum gating systems for sand casting recently were investigated by observing both water modeling and molten aluminum via a new video capturing technique, allowing each systems' coefficient of discharge
to be measured.
The coefficient of discharge
of the melt from the skull crucible in relation to the powder plasma arc is shown in Fig.
