Pipe support design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have a 4" dia pipe supported at 8" o.c. Maximum pressure in the pipe
could be as high as 200 psi; and the pipe has several 90-degree bends.
Does the water hammer phenomenon have any effects other other than simply 
increasing the pressure in the pipe and hence the force at the supports;
are there any vibrations associated with water hammer that would increase 
forces in the support? I appreciate any reference to this kind of problem.
