Title: Control of Surging in Concrete Pipe Distribution Systems
Author(s): C. S. Hale, R. E. Glover, P. W. Terrell, and W. P. Simmons, Jr.
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 573-584

The studies show how surging can be controlled by the creation of a system out of resonance, thus holding surge amplitudes within tolerable limits.
