A fluid transient in a system with steady nonuniform liquid density can be analyzed by a single density computer program by modification of the input parameters. These changes allow the program to solve the correct characteristic equations with appropriate initial and boundary conditions. The applicability of the approach has been demonstrated by a transient analysis of a reservoir, pipeline, valve problem and comparing the results.
