Numerical Analysis of Induced Siphonage in P Trap

Seal water in trap plays a crucial role in preventing foul-smelling toxic gas in drainage pipes from entering indoors. Induced siphonage is the most important of the phenomena associated with seal break and seal loss. This phenomenon occurs when seal water level changes rapidly in response to air pressure fluctuations in drain and gets lost. Though there have been several studies on numeric analyses and motion equations of seal water fluctuation, none of them addressed the issue of seal water fluctuation analysis in response to air pressure fluctuation in drain. In this study, the authors derived a motion equation for induced siphonage in P trap, and examined the validity of the equation by analyzing seal water fluctuation using Excel BVA based on the force of vibration in drain.
