Previous: 8.4.2 Design process
In this Chapter we analyzed the flow in the shot sleeve and developed a
explicit expression to calculated the required plunger velocity.
It has been shown that Garber's model is totally wrong and therefore Brevick's model
is necessarily erroneous as well.
The same can be said to all the other models discussed in this Chapter.
The connection between the ``wave'' and the hydraulic jump has been explained.
The method for calculating the critical slow plunger velocity has been provided.
