Factor analytically for inviscid flows it is 1, for laminar flow it is 2 and for turbulent flows it varies between 1.03 and 1.3 with Reynolds Number.

Laminar flow is uniform and kinetic energy correction of circular pipe = 2.

Turbulent flow is non-uniform flow and kinetic energy correction of circular pipe = 1.03 to 1.28.
