Course Overview

Water distribution networks are crucial for supplying water for residential areas, hospitals, educational institutions, industrial zones, commercial areas, and for firefighting purposes. This hydraulic modelling for water utility distribution systems training course provides participants with a greater working expertise and understanding of water distribution system.

This Hydraulic Modelling for Water Utility Distribution Systems training course will present concepts and tools to analyse and design water distribution networks. Topics covered will include fundamental hydraulic principles and overview of the design standards of water distributions systems.

This Hydraulic Modelling for Water Utility Distribution Systems training course will highlight:

    • Understanding principle of hydraulics 
    • Hydraulic network analysis
    • Model network development
    • Model validation and improvement
    • Water supply and water demand projection
    • Mass balance and demand per capita
    • Conceptual model calibration

Course Objectives:

At the end of this Hydraulic Modelling for Water Utility Distribution Systems training course, participants will learn to:

    • Understand hydraulic principles
    • Collect hydraulic data
    • Evaluate the hydraulic losses in the piping network system
    • Select the suitable pumps
    • Identify model assumptions
    • Develop and optimize the hydraulic model
    • Validate the developed model
    • Improve the model
    • Apply the model for some cases

While both In-House and Online training can present with cost-effectiveness and time-efficacy, there are some very specific differences between in-house courses and those based online.
The demand for additional courses by individuals or groups of people is increasing. Still, it depends entirely on the preferences of a person what type of training he or she wants to receive. Online courses and in-house training carry some similarities but they are considered to exhibit some very pivotal differences too. Despite that, both types of learning can be really beneficial for attendees.
