Water hammer accidents and damages continue to occur at nuclear and industrial facilities, even at SRS, where I have trained many engineers to identify the causes and effects of water hammer. This text is a start toward a better general education of engineers in this field of study. Another effort to this end, is the writing of an in-process ASME Standard, ASME, B31D - Design Of Piping Systems For Dynamic Loads From Fluid Transients. The Standard is scheduled for completion in 2014, and should be another step toward improved safety and lower operating costs for industrial and municipal facilities.
