Hello all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So I found this article on water hammer and I have since beefed up my math skills.

In the attached PDF for some reason they felt the need to convert the Joukousky equation to a wave equation, cant the joukousky equation be solved analytically for pressure vs velocity and then stepped through time?

Why would they need to convert this to a wave equation? Couldn't the first order PDE just be solved directly?
