Abstract : In 1969, the US Army Engineer Division, Huntsville, responsible for the SAFEGUARD facilities design, initiated a R+D program to develop and verify a new computer code for transient pressure calculations for the purpose of designing SAFEGUARD piping systems. A computer code, HYTRAN was the end product of the development and testing efforts. The purpose of this paper is to introduce HYTRAN to engineers who are concerned with hydraulic transient pressures in fluid filled piping systems subjected to strong shaking motions. The basic formulation, method of solution, cavitation, use of accumulators, modeling techniques, analysis of a typical large system, and comparison of calculated and experimental data are presented.
