Pipeline Parameter

Pipeline parameter is proportional to { (maximum water-hammer pressure rise) / (2 static pressure) } and is used in momentum transfer in general and hydraulic transients calculations in particular. It is normally defined in the following form :

 

Pipeline Parameter

 

Where:

a

=

Wave velocity

g

=

Gravitational acceleration

H

=

Static head

Vo

=

Initial velocity
