Surge Pressure Calculation
Surges generated by velocity changes upstream in the main or downstream in a user’s plumbing system should be considered when designing municipal service lines.
The following table shows surge pressures resulting from an instantaneous change in velocity of 1 foot / second (0.3048 meters / second). Surge and change in velocity are directly related; therefore, the surge resulting from higher velocity changes is a multiple of the values given in this table. (i.e. the surge for a velocity change of 3 ft/s is three times the value at 1ft/s).
