Water Hammer Pressure Increase

Water Hammer Pressure Increase Formula

\(\large{ p_{inc} =   \frac { 0.070 v l  }   { t  } + p_i  }\)                 

Where:

\(\large{ p_{inc} }\) = pressure increase

\(\large{ l }\) = upstream pipe length

\(\large{ p_i }\) = inlet pressure

\(\large{ t }\) = valve closing time

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