In this article we have analyzed a water hammer event that occurred during the hydrostatic test of an oil pipeline. As a result of a significant dynamic loading event the piping was thrown off of its supports. We have performed dynamic calculations in the frequency domain with two models. The first model is a 2-DOF mass-spring model, used to perform an engineering assessment of the pipeline. The second model is a complex piping model of the aboveground section, which matches the real pipeline geometry and physical properties as well as possible. The Duhamel integral was used to calculate the transient response of the pipeline to the local water hammer impulse loading. The analysis results were used to estimate the pipeline displacement, and to develop certain practical recommendations to prevent such damage in the future.
