How to do a surge analysis of a rising main using the Wanda software tool. The video demonstrates how to build a hydraulic model of a rising main then how to analyse the surge (water hammer) results obtained from a pump trip.
Fluid Mechanics Ltd are consultant engineers specialising in hydraulic design and analysis. They use the Wanda software tool to do surge or water hammer analysis.
Surge tanks are often used to reduce the maximum surge pressures and reduce pressure fluctuation. The video shows how to use Wander to design an optimise a surge suppression system using a surge vessel.
