Abstract: The purpose of this works is to assess the risk of failure of cracked pipe due to fluid transient. A mathematical model has been established based on the mass and momentum conservation laws, the system of hyperbolic partial differential equations has been solved by the method of characteristics and a finite difference method to calculate the maximum pressure in the pipe. Afterwards, a finite element method have been used to perform a reliable assessment analysis of a cracked pipe used in water distribution by using Monte Carlo method and failure assessment diagram (FAD) tools to evaluate the safety factor from deterministic and probabilistic view points.

Keywords: Monte Carlo method, failure assessment diagram, water hammer, method of characteristics.
