The first of its kind, this modern, comprehensive text covers both analysis and design of piping systems. The authors begin with a review of basic hydraulic principles, with emphasis on their use in pumped pipelines, manifolds, and the analysis and design of large pipe networks. After the reader obtains an understanding of how these principles are implemented in computer solutions for steady state problems, the focus then turns to unsteady hydraulics. These are covered at three levels:
Introduction. Review of the Fundamentals. Manifold Flow. Pipe Network Analysis. Design of Pipe Networks. Extended Time Simulations and Economical Design. Introduction to Transient Flow. Elastic Theory of Hydraulic Transients (Water Hammer). Solution by Method of Characteristics. Pipe System Transients. Pumps in Pipe Systems. Network Transients. Transient Control Devices and Procedures. References.
