Reference: colpo d'ariete

Reference information:
Il colpo d'ariete è un fenomeno idraulico che si presenta in una condotta quando un flusso di liquido in movimento al suo interno viene bruscamente fermato dalla repentina chiusura di una valvola. O viceversa, quando una condotta chiusa e in pressione viene aperta repentinamente.

Consiste in un'onda di pressione che si origina in prossimità della valvola a causa dell'inerzia della colonna di fluido in movimento che impatta contro la parete della valvola chiusa.


L'intensità del colpo e il valore della pressione massima dell'onda possono raggiungere livelli tali da far esplodere le condotte.
