The hydraulic efficiency conversion method of Moody formula based on H. Blasius friction coefficient formula for the “Hydraulically smooth zone” was analyzed. The method of model to prototype that involves the influence of the surface roughness of hydraulic machinery was advised. The conversion result was compared among the Haaland fomula, the Swamee-Jain formula, and the different proportion of hydraulic loss type. It was contrasted with the standard method. The difference of prototype efficiency is no bigger than 0.0025 in the prototype roughness 0.025mm range. The proposed computational method is provided with the same characteristics with the flowing zone, and possessed the clear physics significance, the simple computation process and the high conversion precision. It is satisfied with the efficiency conversion under the influence of the surface roughness.
