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


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

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