We believe that a thorough understanding of the hydrodynamic behaviour in a pipeline system is essential to guarantee a low cost, safe and reliable system. With this course, we will enhance your understanding of this hydrodynamic behaviour and teach you how to perform a basic surge analysis yourself.


Aim of the course

  • Obtain thorough understanding of hydraulic aspects in pipelines
  • Learn to select and design mitigating measures to prevent excessive surge (water hammer)
  • Deepen knowledge on hydraulic processes leading to water hammer
  • Practice hydraulic modelling of pipelines.

The following topics will be addressed:

  • Introduction to water hammer and mitigating measures
  • Modelling exercises and practical examples with WANDA
  • Theoretical aspects of water hammer and rigid columns
  • Effect of valve operations
  • Practical examples from participants

Temporary licenses for modelling software (WANDA) will be made available.


Who should attend

The course aims at engineers with different educational backgrounds (such as civil, mechanical,
and process) working in the fields of the water industry (i.e. drinking water, wastewater
and cooling water), the process industry (oil & gas) or the chemical industry. Deltares’ long
experience with these courses has proven to have added value in particular to water utilities
and consultants. A BSc degree in water engineering, engineering science, physics, or other
scientific discipline is recommended.
