2 At the submit point, S: and is a fixed positive value “ NEGATIVE PRESSURE EXIST IN THE PIPELINE WHENEVER THE PIPELINE RAISED ABOVE THE HYDRAULIC GRADIENT LINE” Total Head Negative pressure reaches a maximum value at the summit , ( ) Water flow from S to R must flow against pressure gradient. Water always flows toward lower-energy locations. The difference in elevation between S and R should be It is important to maintain pressure at all points in a pipeline above the vapor pressure of water. Vapor pressure of water a negative water column of 10 m at 20 0 C. When the pressure in a
