Fluid Transients – E. Benjamin Wylie & Victor Streeter – 1st Edition


Since publication of the predecessor to this (Hydraulic Transient, McGraw Hill company, 1967) much work has been carried out and many advances have been made in digital of . In this revision and update, the scope has been broadened to include material beyond basic waterhammer , necessitating the adoption of a modified tittle Transients.

The coverage is intended both for practicing and for academic instruction. The contents have been used for a two-semester course sequence in transient education for practicing enginners.
