quantitative method with proper mathematical basis has

been provided in con trast to the cook book approach. By

this method it is possible to quantify stresses, velocities

and reaction forces. This gives us a basis for a proper

engineering design. The method being simple can be

easily adopted by engineers involved in trouble-shooting.

Several improvements in the model are in line and

planned for future work. These are like inclusion of

lumped mass in the span or pipe bends. These will widen

the range of application of the method and will be of

greater practical use.
