Analysis and Modelling of Non-Steady Flow in Pipe and Channel Networks
deals with flows in pipes and channel networks from the standpoints of
hydraulics and modelling techniques and methods. These engineering
problems occur in the course of the design and construction of hydroenergy
plants, water-supply and other systems. In this book, the author presents
his experience in solving these problems from the early 1970s to the
present day. During this period new methods of solving hydraulic problems
have evolved, due to the development of computers and numerical methods.
This book is accompanied by a website which hosts the author's software
package, Simpip (an abbreviation of simulation of pipe flow) for solving
non-steady pipe flow using the finite element method. The program also
covers flows in channels. The book presents the numerical core of the
SimpipCore program (written in Fortran). Key features: Presents the theory
and practice of modelling different flows in hydraulic networks. Takes a
systematic approach and addresses the topic from the fundamentals.
Presents numerical solutions based on finite element analysis. Accompanied
by a website hosting supporting material including the SimpipCore project
as a standalone program Analysis and Modelling of Non-Steady Flow in Pipe
and Channel Networks is an ideal reference book for engineers,
practitioners and graduate students across engineering disciplines.
