Question about effects of quick pipeline shut-down…

  1. Jul 7, 2010 #1
    How are you predicting the effects of emergency shut-down scenarios on your pipeline networks?

    I'm seeking some input on the tools you use to predict mechanical effects (hammering, etc.) from critical scenarios such as emergency shut-down.

    What kind of liquid? Density (gas or liquid) makes a huge difference.

    Thanks for your response!
    The liquid would be crude oil...

    After doing a little research, I actually came across a webinar that will apparently cover these topics - looks like it's part 3 of a larger series. Here's the address, as it looks like it's open to the public:
