Sudden flow changes in confined pipe systems generate transient flow (waterhammer) conditions accompanied with very high or sometimes very low pressures traveling back and forth in the system. Depending on the magnitude of those pressures, pipe collapse or pipe bursting may take place at the weakest points of the system, resulting in costly damages as well as loss of human lives in some cases. In general, it may be encountered in the penstocks of hydropower plants, water transmission lines and water network...
Investigation of water hammer problems and potential solutions in pump discharge lines
Erdem, Recep Çağrı; Bozkuş, Zafer; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
Disturbance in boundary conditions of a hydraulic system could cause rapid change in flow velocity in confined pipe systems. Pressure wave leading to an event called water hammer may occur as a consequence of that disturbance. Water hammer could lead to catastrophic failures on the hydraulic systems. Thus, proper protection measures should be defined and installed in the system before it is put into operation. The aim of this study is to analyze a pumped discharge line and ensure its safe operation against ...

Investigation of waterhammer problems in the penstocks of small hydropower plants
Çalamak, Melih; Bozkuş, Zafer; Department of Civil Engineering (2010)
Waterhammer is an unsteady hydraulic problem which is commonly found in closed conduits of hydropower plants, water distribution networks and liquid pipeline systems. Due to either a malfunction of the system or inadequate operation conditions, pipeline may collapse or burst erratically resulting in substantial damages, and human losses in some cases. In this thesis, time dependent flow situations in the penstocks of small hydropower plants are investigated. A software, HAMMER, that utilizes method of chara...
