Water transport through pipes, pressure losses, (pressure) network design and building, pump selection, pumping stations, power supply, quantitative reliability, operation and maintenance. Studie goals: The student will acquire the ability to: design a transportation network, identify critical situations for water hammer design a pumping station in terms of capacity, lay out and operation of pumps analyse a lopped and branched pipe system, analyse a drinking water system with ALEID or EPANET and a sewer system with HYDROWORKS, identify critical areas for water quality deterioration, analyse the reliability of a drinking water system and identify critical elements as well as formulate solutions to these points.
Water hammer can work in both directions, and I only discussed one of those in the previous video (https://youtu.be/xoLmVFAFjn4). This episode revisits that demonstration to show how water hammer can form a vacuum pressure in a pipe. Momentum carrying fluid away from a valve wants to keep going even after the valve is closed. This generates a negative pressure than can cause major damage!
Hydraulic transients (also known as water hammer) can seem innocuous in a residential setting, but these spikes in pressure can cause major damage to large pipelines and industrial pipe networks. In this video, we briefly discuss how water hammer occurs and how engineers mitigate the effect.
