Author(s): Jim C. P. Liou

Linked Author(s): Chyr Pyng (Jim) Liou


Abstract: Line packing and drafting are significant for long transmission pipelines. The former can result in pressures significantly exceeding the Joukowsky head rise. The latter can lead to column separation. These phenomena are easy to model but difficult to explain. A physical explanation and how to quantify them are given.
