Title:Study of classical waterhammer theory
Author(s):Phillips, James W.; Walker, J.S.
Subject(s):Classical Waterhamer Theory
Pressure Surges
Fluid-filled Elastic Tubes
Abstract:A theory developed by the authors for describing pressure surges in fluid-filled thin-walled tubes is compared with classical waterhammer theory and with experiments in the laboratory. Classical waterhannner theory is found to be adequate for the cases considered. Initial experimental results for propagation around elbows are reported, and a possible theory for pulse propagation in curved fluid-filled elastic tubes is presented in part.
