In some pumping plants several one-way surge tanks are installed to prevent water-column separation in the discharge line caused by failure of power to pumps. This paper describes a method of analysis of waterhammer in a pump system of this type. The analysis is carried out by solving the fundamental equations by a digital computer. An example is calculated and the results are compared with the measurements.
