Pipe Clearing Fluid Transients Your firm has been hired by an apple orchard in rural Massachusetts to design its new cider pasteurization equipment. This orchard only makes cider during a short period in the fall; the equipment is stored in an unheated barn during the rest of the year. For sanitary reasons, the equipment is to be flushed with water at the end of the season. To prevent freezing damage during the winter, and to keep the equipment clean for the remainder of the year, it has been proposed that the pipes in the pasteurizer be blown dry with filtered shop air before storage. The project lead is concerned that this air purge procedure may result in damage to the pasteurizer as slugs of residual water are forced around the numerous tubing bends 2 . You have been tasked with modeling the forces exerted by these water slugs as they are cleared by high-pressure air. Your model will be used by the design exerted by these water slugs as they are cleared by high-pressure air....
