This paper deals with the modeling of transients in low pressure transmission lines. Modeling of low pressure lines becomes more and more important for increasing efficiency of fast switching applications and performance of pumps e.g. common rail diesel injection systems and suction pipes of pumps. One simulation method is the lumped parameter model. For example a straight pipe can be modeled as a cascade of inertia, friction and compressibility blocks. In this paper, the idea of cascades is adopted for transient simulation of nonlinear fluids. The model includes a nonlinear fluid law of an oil-air mixture and the
balance equations i.e. the compressibility and the inertia of the fluid. Friction is modeled by the frequency dependent friction model of Kagawa et.al. Comparison of simulation results with measurements from a test rig shows good correlation. Finally the scope of this simulation model is discussed and compared with measurements.
