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


Since publication of the predecessor to this (Hydraulic Transient, McGraw Hill book 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 sequence in transient education for practicing enginners.
