Pipeline Parameter

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

Pipeline Parameter FORMULA

\(\large{ \rho = \frac {aV}  {2gH}   }\)         

Where:

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

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

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

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

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