Abstract
Maximal relative error of the explicit approximation to the Colebrook equation for flow friction presented in the discussed paper by Saeed Samadianfard [J. Pet. Sci. Eng. 92-93 (2012), 48-55; doi. 10.1016/j.petrol.2012.06.005] is investigated. Samadianfard claims that his approximation is very accurate with the maximal relative error of no more than 0.08152%. Here is shown that this error is about 7%. Related comments about the paper are also enclosed. ; JRC.F.3-Energy Security, Systems and Market
