ordinate system rotating with the pipe, ω = 2 w rot , so the term s d w rot w

× is equal to
s d w 2

ω × , the Coriolis force term. ( w– relative velocity) The Bernoulli equation can be
written after simplifying the terms above:

b) If the dike is higher, the pressure in the pipe can reach the pressure of saturated steam. In
this case, the water column is going to break. The lowest pressure appears after the valve, at
