The distilled water exit the desalination unit through a pipe at a rate of Qmain and pressure Pmain, branches out into two pipes at right angles, each carrying half the total flow, as shown in the plan view below. The diameter of the main pipe is dmain and the diameter of the two smaller pipes is dbranch. If the space ABCA is filled with a filler material, calculate the total reaction force generated by the filler to resist the forces acting on the bends of the branching pipes.
