Pump piping system is most common system in any society, industry and chemical plants. Pump piping is used in almost twenty percent of piping in the world. Hence optimization of this system is critical in terms of capital and annual savings. Many researchers have thrown light on optimization of pump piping considering hydraulics of lines. One of the deciding mechanical design parameter for the selection of pump is force exerted on the pump nozzle by connected piping. By using different piping configurations, effect of force exerted on pump nozzle is being studied in this paper. This force is being calculated and compared for different piping configurations by analytical method and piping analysis software. The strain of piping in these different piping configurations at a particular point is being measured experimentally and compared with piping analysis software results. The most optimum configuration which exerts lesser force on Pump nozzle is being suggested.
