Pipeline Parameter

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Dimensionless Numbers

Pipeline parameter is a dimensionless number proportional to maximum water-hammer pressure rise and static pressure.

FORMULA

\(\rho = \frac {aV}  {2gH} \)

Where:

\(\rho\) (Greek symbol rho) =  pipeline parameter

\(a\) = wave velocity

\(V_i\) = initial velocity

\(g\) = gravitational acceleration

\(H\) = static head
