1 1 . 8 Vapor pressure is reached throughout most of the pipeline, but the largest cavity
appears at the “knee” at elevation 1350 ft. Cavity volume reaches 34 ft3 at 17
sec but has collapsed by 29 sec. The maximum pressure of 415 lb/in2 occurs at
the pump discharge at 44 sec.
1 1 . 9 Vapor pressure is reached throughout most of the pipeline, except at the “knee”
where an air-vacuum valve causes a 151 ft3 air cavity to form. The air cavity
begins to form at 3 sec, reaches its maximum size at 59 sec, and finally is

exhausted at 135 sec. The maximum pressure of 435 lb/in2 occurs at the pump
discharge at 11 sec.
11.10 Vapor pressure is reached throughout most of the pipeline, but the largest cavities
are at the “knees” at elevations 4440 ft and 4470 ft. Maximum cavity volumes
reach 111 ft3 and 34 ft3 at 34 sec and 22 sec, respectively. By 45 sec, major
cavity formation has ceased. The maximum pressure of 364 lb/in2 occurs at the
pump discharge at 66 sec.
11.11 Vapor pressure is reached throughout the 2000 ft pipe but is not extensive owing
to the air-vacuum valve at the “knee”. At that point a 58 ft3 air cavity forms,
reaching maximum size at 5 sec. The air cavity continues to form and exhaust
periodically until its size is down to 10 ft3 at 60 sec. The maximum pressure of
492 lb/in2 occurs at the pump discharge at 10 sec.
1 1 . 1 2 Vapor pressure is reached throughout the downstream half of the pipeline;
however, the presence of the air-vacuum valve at the “knee” prevents the formation
of large vapor cavities. The air cavity reaches a maximum volume of 66 ft3 at 6
sec, reforming several more times until dying out completely by 50 sec. The
maximum pressure of 478 lb/in2 is at the pump discharge at 15 sec.
