Abstract: Half a century ago Richard Skalak (1923-1997) (Ref 1) published a paper with the title 'An extension of the theory of water hammer' (Refs 2, 3, 4), which has been the basis of much subsequent work on hydraulic transients with fluid-structure interaction. The paper considers the propagation of pressure waves in liquid-filled pipes and the coupled radial/axial response of the pipe walls. In a tribute to Skalak's work, his results are used herein to assess the dispersion of wave fronts in long cross-country pipelines, as observed in field measurements.
Keywords: Pipelines; Hydraulic transients; Flow-structure interactions; Wave front propagation.
