What is it about?

Water hammer is a phenomenon indicated by the sudden increase of water pressure during water flow restriction. With the industry's increasing use of viscoelastic pipes, the water hammer phenomenon in viscoelastic pipes becomes essential. This paper elaborates on relevant water hammer concepts in viscoelastic pipes, including mathematical modeling, experimental setups, numerical solutions, parameter calibration, defect detection, and surge control.
