Techniques of analysis for nonlinear transient flow in a pipe

Abstract

Analytical solutions to the time-dependent, nonlinear equation governing incompressible, one dimensional flow in a pipe are presented. The flow is pressure-driven, and a valve on the pipe controls the flow rate. Power-law losses and an exponential closing action of a valve are assumed. Four different approximation methods are used. Of these, perturbation… (More)
