Abstract

On the basis of theoretical considerations, the technical note presents two practical formulas for the dimensioning of air valves when filling a pipe with water. One is to be used for designing air valves on the basis of the maximum allowed water hammer overpressures; the other when the maximum in pipe water velocity is set. The reliability of these formulas was tested with a numerical model based on the same hypothesis, which was in turn verified with experimental tests
