This chapter presents a review of the literature related to fluid transients involving column separation and vaporous and gaseous cavitation in pipelines. Basic concepts are clarified, and the classification of water hammer and cavitation models is presented. The historical development of fluid transients is described. The concept of propagation of pressure pulses at sonic velocity through a straight pipeline is presented. 

Keywords: Cavitation; Column separation; Experiment; Water hammer.
