Abstract: The relative importance of unsteady friction effects in real pipelines remains a matter of debate. This paper presents the results of a set of field transient measurements on a 13.5 km long trunk transmission water pipeline located in regional South Australia. Modelling has been undertaken using efficient rough pipe turbulent weighting function methods to calculate the unsteady friction contribution. The relative importance of unsteady friction, for no-leak and leak cases, is assessed. Copyright ASCE 2005.
