Applied Hydraulic Transients
Applied Hydraulic Transients, 3rd Edition covers hydraulic transients in a comprehensive and systematic manner from introduction to advanced level and presents various methods of analysis for computer solution. The book is suitable as a textbook for senior-level undergraduate and graduate students as well as a reference for practicing engineers and researchers. The field of application of the book is very broad and diverse and covers areas such as hydroelectric projects, pumped storage schemes, water-supply systems, cooling-water systems, oil pipelines and industrial piping systems.
A strong emphasis is given to practical applications: several case studies, problems of applied nature, and design criteria are included. This will help the design engineers and introduce the students to real-life projects. Up-to-date references are included at the end of each chapter.
Presents modern methods of analysis suitable for computer analysis, such as the method of characteristics, explicit and implicit finite-difference methods and matrix methodsIncludes a chapter on Two-Component Flows; one part of the chapter dealing with the mixture of gas and liquid and the other with solid and liquid (slurry)Case studies of actual projects are includedProvides problems of applied natureIncludes a chapter on cooling-water systemsTreatment of governed hydraulic turbines is very extensive and completePresents design charts, design criteria, and approximate methods
