The mitigation (or even elimination) of waterhammer effects can be reached following two general ways of action. The first one is related to training, operation and maintenance of equipment installed in pipe networks. The second way deals with design, sizing and location of hydraulic devices aimed for controlling, directly or indirectly, the wave pressures generated by waterhammer. This last way requires both experience and specialized software in order to simulate and predict waterhammer effects in all type of pipe networks, regardless of the configuration between pipes and nodes and the type of hydraulic devices installed on the pipe network.
