Hydrodynamics of Instant Emptying of High-Pressure Liquid from Pipeline


A hydrodynamical model of emptying of high-pressure liquid from a pipeline has been built. A comparative analysis of solutions found by an approximate method and more exact methods has been done. The solutions to the connected differential equations obtained are given. Numerical calculations have been performed for real-life values of the system parameters.
