Velocity of Pressure Wave Calculator

Posted by Dinesh on

Use the simple pressure variation in penstock gate movements calculator tool that calculates velocity of pressure wave each caused by one of the instantaneous small gate movements in Dam.

Pressure Variation in Penstock Gate Movements

Formula:

a = 4,660 / (?1 + (d / 100 × t))

where,
  • d - penstock diameter
  • t - penstock wall thickness
  • a - velocity of the pressure wave
