Presents modern methods of analysis suitable for computer analysis, such as the method of characteristics, explicit and implicit finite-difference methods and matrix methods
Includes 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 included
Provides problems of applied nature
Includes a chapter on cooling-water systems
Treatment of governed hydraulic turbines is very extensive and complete
Presents design charts, design criteria, and approximate methods
This book covers hydraulic transients in a comprehensive and systematic manner from introduction to advanced level and presents various methods of analysis for computer solution. 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. Strong emphasis is given to practical applications, including several case studies, problems of applied nature, and design criteria. This will help design engineers and introduce students to real-life projects.
