Modeling of Oil Product and Gas Pipeline Transportation

Based on a well tried-and-tested lecture at the Russian State University of Oil and Gas, this accessible approach to the theory of pipeline transportation provides systematic coverage of various kinds of fluids, backed by real-world examples. From the contents: * Fundamentals of mathematical modeling of one-dimensional flows * Models of transported media * Structure of laminar and turbulent fluid flows * Modeling and calculation of steady-state regimes * Closed mathematical models of one-dimensional fluid and gas flows * Dimensional theory * Physical modeling of phenomena * Dimension and similarity in mathematical modeling of processes End-of-chapter problems make this practical book consistent and suitable for self-study.
