This chapter discusses the fundamentals of liquid pipeline hydraulics and the design andoperation (Chapter 5) of hydrocarbon liquid pipeline systems from a hydraulics point of view. Pipeline system design is mainly concerned with line sizing, equipment sizing and location, and flowcapacity; while system operation is concerned with pipeline system or facility start-up and shut-down, product receipt and delivery, flow rate changes, emergency shut-down, equipment failure, etc.
