FOREWORD
0.1 This Indian Standard ( First Revision ) was adopted by the Indian
Standards Institution on 31 December 1985, after the draft finalized by the
Water Conductor Systems Sectional Committee had been approved by the
Civil Engineering Division Council.
0.2 The surge tank absorbs the water hammer or elastic shock waves coming from the pressure pipe line or tunnel on closure or opening of the valve
or turbine gates and also to supply/store additional water during load
acceptance/rejection during load demand/rejection until the conduit velocity
has accelerated/decelerated
to the new steady state value. Surges or mass
oscillations occur in the surge tanks, the hydraulic design of which is so
done as to keep the surges within reasonable limits.
0.3 This standard is being prepared in parts.
are as follows:
Other parts of this standard
Part 2 Tail race surge tanks
Part 3 Special surge tanks ( under prepration
Part 4 Multiple surge tanks
0.4 This standard was first published in 1974. This revision has been made
in view of the experience gained during the course of these years in use of
this standard.
Mannings formula has been added in this revision for
calculating the friction losses.

2.1 Simple Surge Tank  A simple surge tank is a shaft connected to
pressure tunnel directly or by a short connection of crosssectional area not

2.3 Differential Surge Tank  Differential surge tank is a throttled surge
tank with an addition of a riser pipe may be inside the main shaft, connected to main shaft by orifice or ports as shown in Fig. 3A. The riser may
also be arranged on one side of throttled shaft as shown in Fig. 3B. In case
of type shown in Fig. 3A port holes are generally at the bottom of the riser
at the sides.

5.5.3.7 Any shape of the orifice may be adopted but a circular shape
is preferable.
If the gates are to be provided in the surge tank, the gate
slots generally function as orifices and additional area as necessary may be
provided in the form of a circular hole at the top of the tunnel in the riser.
5.5.3.8 The orifice should be kept as near to the head race tunnel
periphery as possible. Suitable shapes and streamlinings shall be provided
at the top and bottom of orifice to obtain the desired coefficients for the
up and down surges.
5.5.3.9 It is recommended that model tests should be conducted to
determine the required streamlinings on the top and bottom of the orifice
and the coefficient of discharge for entry and exit. Model experiments
should test the behaviour for same range possible in these values between
model and prototype.
5.5.4 Diflerential Surge Tank  The surges that occur in a differential
surge tank will depend on thedesign of riser and orifice.

5.5.4.1 Riser  The area of the riser shall not be less than threefourths of the area of the conduit to avoid rapid changes in the water
level and facilitate proper governing of machines. The top of the riser
should be so chosen that the maximum level of the water spilling over the
riser is less than or equal to the maximum surge level in the main tank.
The rapidity of change in water levels should be related to characteristics
of turbine governor and minimum area acceptable to turbine governor shall
be provided.

OF SURGE TANK
6.1 The top of the surge tank may be kept 1.5 m above the highest water
level while the bottom of the surge tank may be kept 2.0 m below the
lowest surge level determined by calculation or by model experiments ~for
the worst conditions.
The extra provision at the top may be in the form
bf a solid retaining wall wherever surge tank is brought to the surface and
is covered all around by such a wall.
It should be ensured that there is a
sufficient water cover over the tunnel to avoid vortex formation even at the
lowest water level in the surge tank. If likelihood of vortex formation is
established by model experiments, vortexsuppression devices may be considered. Model and prototype behaviour in respect of vortex formation
can differ substantially.
Therefore adequate allowance should be given
while fixing the minimum water cover.
6.1.1 If the topography near the surge shaft area permits, suitabe arrangements for spillover may be considered so as to restrict the surge height
[ see IS : 7396 ( Part 3 )* 1.
7. GENERAL REQUIREMENTS
7.1 In orifices and ports where the velocities are so high as to cause erosion
and cavitation damage, steel lining should be provided at these locations.
7.2 For all important works, it is recommended that the results are verified
by model studies.
7.3 With the availability of high capacity computer analysis of surges is
now easier by mathematical model and should be adopted as far as
practicable.
7.4 Surge tank water level indicatorsor recorders should be provided in the
controlyoom for controlling theload acceptance.

SURGE ANALYSIS
BY SCHOKLITSCH
The main graph consists of a curve
GRAPHICAL
relating
METHOD
Z to VI; the time t is
treated as a variable parameter so that the curve relating Z to t follows
easily ( Fig. 5 ).
The origin 01 of VI Z plane of coordinates is fixed at the static
water surface ( reservoir level ). The Z scale is the same as that of surge
tank.
The parabola of hydraulic losses ( hf = & ~V1z ) is plotted taking hf
along the Zaxis and VI as abscissa, Izf is plotted downwards if VI > 0
( curve 1 ).
Assuming a constant value of time interval At, the straight line representing the equation:
Avl=
j+. z
. . . ...(i)
is plotted which also passes through the origin 01. A V1 is plotted along
Viaxis and has the same scale ( curve 2).
Another
straight
line
is drawn
connecting Vi as abscissa with Vt as
ordinate according to the relation:
Vt =
vi At
. . .. (ii)
At
This also passes through the origin O1. It is convenient to plot Vi
tive downwards for VI > 0 ( curve 3).
posi
A curve is drawn, with Oz as origin connecting the volume of surge
tank, V to the elevation, Z. V is plotted as abscissa and Z as ordinate
( curve 4 ). The origin of the cuxve which represents the equation
A~
= A,. AZ
( iii)
is selected at a level below the lowest water level anticipated in the surge
tank.
With origin as 03, curve ( curve 5 ) is drawn with Z as ordinate

The starting point of calculation is at the steady state condition so that
Via and Za (_PVI~)are known. A straight line al b, drawn through point
al on curve 1 parallel to curve 2. At the initial instant &,,the quantity of
water flowing through the turbine is Qa. At and is known from curve 5.
The value of Vt at the initial stage is known from curve 3. Graphical
subtraction yields:
Qa.nt
I VI
By plotting AVla on curve 4, point b, is obtained. Point b, is obtained
by intersection of the horizontal straight line through b, and the sloping
line through al. Point bl lies vertically below b, on curve 1. This point
bl represents the starting point for a similar process to obtain points c4 on
curve 4, and c,, cl, etc.
AV,
= Vta 
Point b, lies on the curve of Z plotted against ~1, with its coordinate
VI, + AVl and Zb = Za + AZ.
The curve representing the
oscillation may be drawn through points al, b,, c, and d,. The corresponding value oft is always known, and curve 7 may be plotted which relates Z
and t.

NOTE In Schoklitsch method the coordinates 2 and V, of a point a,, b,, c,. . . .
relate to the beginning of the time interval n t and are not mean values as are used
in Pressels analytical method.
This fact is responsible for the simplicity of the
Schoklitsch method, but it demands that small time intervals At be employed to
yield accurate results.
