Surging in concrete pipe systems preventing or delaying delivery of irrigation water necessitated field and laboratory studies to determine the cause and provide a means of control. The studies show how surging can be controlled by the creation of a system out of resonance, thus holding surge amplitudes within tolerable limits.
