One of the main causes of pipeline systems' failure are sharp changes and fluctuations in pressure caused by various reasons. Pressure stabilizer is a modern and effective mean for damping of wave processes. The constructive scheme of the device is a pipeline with uniformly distributed perforation through which liquid can flow from the pipeline into a damping add-on above the perforated part of it. The article discusses the pipeline scheme, in which occurs water hammer. It is investigated the problem of optimal perforation area under the assumed constant parameters of the stabilizer. It was used a numerical method of characteristics. © 2017 Int. J. Mech. Eng. Rob. Res.
