Pipeline Engineering Reference from C.H.I.P.S.
Hydraulics of Pipeline Systems
by Bruce E. Larock, Roland W. Jeppson and Gary Z. Watters
The first of its kind, this modern, comprehensive text covers both analysis and design of piping systems.
Hydraulics of Pipeline Systems begins with a review of basic hydraulic principles, with emphasis on their use in pumped pipelines, manifolds, and the analysis and design of large pipe networks.
After the reader obtains an understanding of how these principles are implemented in computer solutions for steady state problems, the focus then turns to unsteady hydraulics. These are covered at three levels:
 Situations in which inertial forces and elastic effect can be ignoredquasisteady solutions
 Situations that include inertial forces and techniques for solving systems of equations that describe timedependent flows and pressures in large networks
 Situations in which timedependent changes are really rapidtrue transient analyses that also include the elastic effect of liquid compression and pipe expansion
