Definition Of:

C factor

Environmental Engineering Dictionary
 A factor of value used to indicate the smoothness of the interior of a pipe. The higher the C Factor, the smoother the pipe, the greater the carrying capacity, and the smaller the friction or energy losses from water flowing in the pipe. To calculate the C Factor, measure the flow, pipe diameter, distance between two pressure gages, and the friction or energy loss of the water between the gages. C Factor = Flow (GPM)/193.75 (Diameter, ft)2.63 (Slope)0.54
