Hydraulic transients and pressure changes such as water hammers can be controlled in several ways.

These include:
* Gate controls and governors
* Pressure regulator valves
* Surge tanks

Surge tanks are vertical standpipes that act as a Forebay and shorten the distance for relief from the pressure wave of the water hammer.

Surge tank mean?

A Surge tank is a water storage device used as a pressure neutralizer in hydropower water conveyance systems in order to dampen excess pressure variance.

Head loss in bend is lesser than elbow. The time taken for bends is shorter than elbow for fluid to rise until 3L. This is because bends will allow fluid to make turn easily rather than elbows will restrict the fluid to move fast.

Whats the difference between water hammer, surge, seperation and hydraulic jump? Please give details.

How many times surge pressure can be felt in respect to working pressure?

What can you use to seal the plastic pipe connecting to the galvanised pipe?

Is the head loss in elbow is lower than bend?

Water hammer is caused when water or any type of fluid is in motion is forced to stop or to change its direction then surges are induced and waves propagates in the pipes. For the purpose to reduce effect of water hammer surge tanks or surge drums are provided.

A rectangular prism is nothing but cuboid. So volume= lxbxh = 10x6x5 = 300 cubic feet.
