Liquid pipeline hydraulics involves the steady state transport characteristics of various types of fluids in pipelines such as petroleum products or crude oil. This domain of work includes a wide variety of subjects such as fluid mechanics, fluid hydraulics, fluid machinery and more. To successfully structure effective liquid pipelines it is important that the various liquid properties are analyzed such as pressure consideration, friction considerations, viscosity considerations and more. Pipeline constructions can be accounted for both long distance and short distance pipes while taking into account multiple pump stations and hydraulic pressure gradient for long distance pipes. A number of equations and formulae are involved in the subject which directly relate to the practical applicability in real life scenarios. Such equations and formulae relate to the pressure drop considerations, friction energy loss considerations, viscosity flow considerations, flow separation and more. Pipeline hydraulic considerations also involve the derivation of pumping horsepower required for the needed distance. Pipeline hydraulics has a specialized nature of work wherein a large amount of engineering and technology goes into play. The involvement of effective engineering practices and deployment methodologies are to be taken into account.
