Transient surge modeling remains to be a specialized task and therefore quite unfamiliar to many engineers and designers. The process for discerning when to conduct a model can be vague. The process for how to conduct a model can be even more unclear and quite daunting. This paper serves as an introductory guide to an engineer or reviewing project manager new to surge modeling. The content within covers a brief overview of the physics behind transients, what information is required to create a computer surge model, the content within a surge report and how to interpret it.

Included within this paper are several references and detailed plots derived from actual projects.
