Although comprehensive references are available to teach fluid mechanics (White [19] or Shames [20]), some of the fundamentals in these areas are presented here to lay the foundation for a discussion of fluid transients. The basic concepts of theoretical fluid mechanics and some practical aspects of fluid systems (Crane [21]) are applied in this chapter to pipe systems and their system components, such as pumps, piping, valves, and fittings to provide a basic understanding of steady-state fluid system design, which is the first step toward understanding fluid transients. Numerous equations are provided with examples to illustrate their use, but in practice, computer codes are commonly used to establish steady-state conditions in fluid systems.
