  •  I'll try and find mine but it is weeks old (6+ / 0-)

    Mine was done by looking at the full flow video of the wide open riser flange. It was based on knowing a bit about hydraulics and mass flow rates.

    In my younger years, I designed equipment to handle bulk granular materials such as salt and grain. We routinely used 24" diameter pipe at high flow rates to load ships, etc.

    My figures were based on intuition and experience.

    I put in a disclaimer in that it was only a seat-of-the-pants estimation and I wasn't responsible for any damages that might accrue from a faulty estimate. ;)
