The first of its kind, this modern, comprehensive text covers both analysis and design of piping systems. The authors begin with a review of basic hydraulic principles, with emphasis on their use in pumped pipelines, manifolds, and the analysis and design of large pipe networks. After the reader obtains an understanding of how these principles are implemented in computer solutions for steady state problems, the focus then turns to unsteady hydraulics. These are covered at three levels:

Extraction of Programs and Files Associated with The Hydraulics of Pipeline Systems
This CD contains the computer programs, input and output data files, etc., that are referred to as being on a
CD in the book Hydraulics of Pipeline Systems. The SETUP program on the CD should be used to
decompress and transfer the files from the CD to the hard drive of your PC. This extraction program allows
you to view the names of the files. Options in this program allow you to display the names of all files, or
display names according to type. You can also decompress and transfer all of the files by type, or
individual files one at a time from the CD to your hard drive. The menus from the SETUP program
indicate what you can do. For example, the first menu gives you 17 options regarding what you wish to do
(including "Do Nothing," e.g. exit the extraction program). You can select any of the menu item
