Water Hammer Maximum Surge Pressure for a Fluid Formula

\(\large{  p_{spf}  =  \frac { \alpha  \Delta v_f  \gamma  }   { 144 g  }  }\)                         

Where:

\(\large{ p_{spf} }\) = maximum surge pressure for a fluid

\(\large{ \Delta v_f }\) = fluid velocity change

\(\large{ \gamma }\)  (Greek symbol gamma) = fluid weight

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

\(\large{ \alpha }\)  (Greek symbol alpha) = pressure wave velocity

Solve for:

\(\large{  \Delta v_f  =  \frac { 144  p_{spf} g  }   { \alpha  \gamma }   }\)

\(\large{  \gamma  =  \frac { 144  p_{spf} g  }   { \alpha  \Delta v_f  }   }\)

\(\large{  g  =  \frac { \alpha  \Delta v_f  \gamma   }   { 144 p_{spf}  }  }\)

\(\large{  \alpha  =  \frac { 144  p_{spf} g  }   { \Delta v_f  \gamma }   }\)
