Deltares invites you to participate in a one-day course on Capacity problems and flow rate determination in pressurized systems on 17 November 2022. This is organized within the CoUDlabs project training activities. 

This course/workshop targets practitioners who are either designing, building or managing wastewater pressure mains. The following subjects will be addressed in the course:

  • Basics of (multiphase) hydraulics in pressurized systems
  • How to determine the performance of a pressurized system and to detect capacity problems
  • Different sources of capacity problems and how to identify them
  • The effect of air/gas pockets on capacity, energy consumption and what remedies are available
  • Methods to detect the presence of air/gas pockets
  • Several relevant case studies

The techniques and knowledge are the result of continuous research done at Deltares on pressurized systems design and operation. Also based on significant experience derived from a large Dutch Joint Industry Project on CAPacity losses in WasteWATer (CAPWAT) initiated by Deltares, TU Delft and a selection of industrial parties in the period 2003-2010.

The course assumes that participants have a basic knowledge of hydraulics of pipelines and are familiar with the most important aspects of pumps and pumping stations.
