The case study belongs to hydraulic transient analysis with Bentley Hammer V8i software and validating the results with manual calculations. Kolar water pipeline has been taken for case study. For this the result obtained from the PHE department, Bhopal were used for comparison. The available results were for the transient analysis with the surge protection devices in position. However as no detail of the devices was available the analysis with surge protection devices was not possible in Bentley Hammer V8i. . Hence initially the transient analysis for the Kolar pipeline was done manually (using excel sheet) considering the location of air vessels for validation. These results were found to match with the PHE department results. Then manual analysis was done without surge protection devices. After this the transient analysis of the pipeline was performed using Bentley Hammer V8i without surge protection devices. The results so obtained matched fairly well with the manual results for the same case. Bentley hammer v8i used for analysis with condition without surge protection so that the location for surge protection can be found out.
