|Abstract:||In pumping installations such as sewage pumping stations, where gas content and air entrainment exist, the computation of fluid pressure transients in pipelines becomes grossly inaccurate when a constant wave speed is assumed. An accurate numerical model with gas release and absorption has been developed in this paper and used to compute the fluid pressure transients in the pumping mains of selected pumping installations. Free and dissolved gases in the transported fluid and cavitation at vapour pressure are also modelled. When compared with the gas-free case, computations show that entrained, entrapped or released gases amplify the positive pressure peak, increase surge damping and produce asymmetric pressure surges. While the upsurge with air entrainment in the pipelines was considerably amplified, the downsurge was only marginally reduced. The computed results show good agreement with the data available.|
