Pulsation Frequency Analysis Takes a New Turn

In recent years, engineering efforts have been increasingly focused on analyzing and preventing detrimental pulsations in pipelines. One major source of these pulsations is caused by acoustical resonance. Undesirable acoustical resonance happens when pressure pulses (the source of which is often a positive displacement pump) excite the system's nat...
