Running the Transients

When the network has been drawn and checked, click on the run button to start the real time transients. The window changes from the Drawing and Editing View to the Transient View which has two windows.

  • The larger window displays the real instantaneous transients propagating through the pipeline.
  • The smaller window displays the transients at selected locations of the pipeline identified by colored vertical lines.

Run Time Controls
Slow down real time transients     Stop or pause transients
Speed up real time transients Rerun transients
Step by step transients Rescale the drawings

The Windows environment is ideal for quickly drawing the pipe network and boundary conditions. A pipeline can literally be drawn in minutes.

  • The above window shows waterhammer transients caused by pump failure are excessive. Cavitation occurs at the high points.
  • The window on the left shows waterhammer transients after an one way discharge tank is located at the top of the first rise.
