A report is given of a recent visit to 25 university, governmental, and industrial laboratories, state power boards, and consulting firms in Western Europe and the United Kingdom. A critique of the status and activity of research and development in the area of fluid transients constitutes the report, which also comprises 128 references. Dominant areas of current research effort are apparently cavitation and column separation in pumping mains and condensers of water cooling systems, the effect of the presence of dissolved and entrained gas on pressure surges, and hydraulic resonance in hydraulic machinery and pipelines.
