Pipeline Parameter

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Dimensionless Numbers

Pipeline parameter, abbreviated as \(\rho\), a dimensionless number, is proportional to maximum water hammer pressure rise and static pressure.

Pipeline Parameter FORMULA

\(\large{ \rho = \frac {v\;v_i}  {2\;g\;h_s}   }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ \rho }\)  (Greek symbol rho) =  pipeline parameter

\(\large{ g }\) = gravitational acceleration

\(\large{ v_i }\) = initial velocity

\(\large{ v }\) = wave velocity

\(\large{ h_s }\) = static head
