Abstract

"The water hammer phenomena is a very important problem in pipe lines and gate operations. There are many analytical solutions tor water hammer problems including friction losses, but most of them use a linear approximation tor the friction effect that is different from the actual situation. Also the existing methods for solving water hammer problems involve difficult mathematical operations that are impractical and inaccurate.

In order to find a more rapid method for solving water hammer problems including friction losses and to obtain closer agreement with the actual condition, the problem is solved here using the basic partial differential equations with the inclusion of friction losses through a mathematical transformation. A digital computer program is used to solve the resulting equations"--Abstract, page ii.
