Hydrodynamic analysis of trunk oil pipelines

Authors: А.А. Аfinogentov, V.N. Degtyarev, A.V. Pimenov (Samara State Technical University, RF, Samara)

Key words: mathematical simulation, object with distributed parameters, boundary problem, petroleum and petrochemical products transportation in trunk pipelines.

The mathematical model describing non-stationary movement of the trunk oil pipelines is considered. The analysis of starting operating modes of the oil pipeline is made. The area of the maximum values of amplitude of shock pressure on length of the pipeline is established.
