water hammer
 
Hi,

I am trying to simulate the water hammer effect in a pipe using fluent. Did anyone succesfully simulate it before?

I don't think it a good idea. When water hammer appears,the water is compressible according to experiment. In fluent, water can only be treated as incompressible fluid.
