Serial Information: Journal of the Hydraulics Division, 1969, Vol. 95, Issue 6, Pg. 1959-1972

Document Type: Journal Paper


Simplified methods of calculating hydraulic transients are set forth, with techniques for increasing the computing time interval over that permitted by the characteristics method. Lumping and interpolation methods are compared with mixed implicit and characteristics methods. Complex boundary conditions are treated, including a spring-mass system with coulomb friction, an accumulator with inertia and fluid friction, pump failures, and column separation.
