|Toelichting (Engels)||Waterhammer may be best defined as the appearance of pressure changes in closed conduits caused by velocity changes with time of the flow. Therefore waterhammer may occur in all kinds of pipelines in which flow changes with time occur. For instance in long (or short) pipelines for oil, sewage, drinking water, cooling water, slurry, coal slurry, chemicals and in fresh water or city heating networks. The greater and faster the velocity changes, the stronger the pressure changes.|
