Calculator Description
Colebrook Calculator v1
The Colebrook calculator determines the friction factor for turbulent fluids flowing over rough surfaces

Colebrook & Fanning


The Colebrook friction factor applies to fluids flowing over any external surface subject to drag and added mass coefficients.

The Fanning friction factor applies to fluids flowing through a circular pipe resulting in a loss of head.

Whilst Colebrook’s and Fanning’s factors normally apply to particularly rough surfaces and turbulent flow, they may legitimately be applied to any surface (incl. smooth) and exposed to any type of flow (incl. laminar) where safety and sensitivity are considered sufficiently important. However, as Reynold’s number decreases (flow becomes laminar) and/or the surface becomes smoother, their magnitude reduces considerably. Even so, their use should never be discounted without good reason.


In addition to the calculation of the Colebrook and Fanning factors, Colebrook can also be used to calculate simply the Reynolds number, i.e. to identify fluid flow condition; Laminar, Transient or Turbulent.
