Water hammer is a relatively common problem that is often only briefly touched upon in engineering school curriculums. As a result, some engineers do not take the cause and effect of water hammer into account when designing industrial or residential systems. Even engineers who do consider it often do not realize the extent of the damage it can cause in piping systems. At DFT®, our support teams are frequently called in to "course-correct" after the consequences of water hammer have already occurred.

To help you avoid water hammer and the expenses due to the consequences, this webinar explains what this phenomenon is and steps to take to prevent or mitigate the occurrence of water hammer.

Key Take-Aways

  • Learn basic information about water hammer and how to prevent and mitigate its effects
  • Review common applications affected by water hammer
  • Understand basic equations to estimate water hammer magnitude
