Water Hammer Videos

Water hammer is not an easy concept to understand. Major corporations all over the world work with hydraulic flow consultants to solve their water hammer and pulsation frequency issues. Below are several videos created by knowledgeable resources for you to learn more about the water hammer phenomenon. Watch a few so you can identify the signs and avoid lost revenue and down time as a result of water hammer incidents.

Visualize. Understand. Solve.

An international leading software to simulate, analyze and mitigate water hammer / surge in piping systems

AFT Impulse allows engineers to determine the exact point of the water hammer transient so you can prevent issues and proactively design your piping system

Water hammer is when flow in a piping system is suddenly forced to stop or change direction. It can cause the system to rock, bounce, or break from the pressure surge. There can also be a loud sound as the momentum changes and the wave knocks against the valves and continuously changes direction within the pipe. Water hammer/surge are serious concerns in all piping systems and AFT Impulse can help you identify the issues and create effective solutions. 

Why AFT Impulse?

  • Evaluate how valves, pumps and other components will dynamically interact with each other during a surge event
  • Quickly determine the forces generated by transient pressures to help you design your pipe support
  • Find out if you complying with ASME B31.3 requirements for occasional loads
  • Understand the impact that cavitation can have on your piping system
  • Ensure you have the right surge suppression equipment to mitigate potentially catastrophic effects of water hammer/surge and other undesirable system transients like check valve and relief valve chatter
  • Use AFT’s Global Editing feature to massively edit multiple pieces of information at the same time
  • Use AFT’s Scenario Manager to handle all the different cases a pipe system might encounter in a single model
  • Jump start your models by importing your steady-state model, neutral files, piping component files, or EPANET files.
