14th International conference on Pressure Surges – Prague, Czech Republic, 16th-18th November 2022

The Pressure Surges conference series has been running since 1972 and continues to bring together practical engineers and theoretical academics, young and old, inexperienced and specialist, from all over the world. The 14th conference will embrace both traditional and novel subjects. Everyone who owns, constructs, designs, analyses, researches into or manufactures equipment for pipe systems needs to appreciate the possible consequences of pressure surge. This leading conference in the Pressure Surges field is a must attend.
