Webinar log in instructions will be emailed to registrants two business days before the event.
Do not waste another dollar on hydraulic modelling until you attend GeoAdvice innovative training session: "Hydraulic Modelling of Sanitary Sewer Collection Systems".

Seminar Description

The sanitary sewer modelling training begins with the basics of hydraulic theory as it applies to sewer collection modelling, and then takes participants through the sanitary sewer data model. Both steady-state and extended-period simulations will be presented in this course. Sewer load allocation and model calibration will be discussed. Participants will become familiar with EPA-SWMM (transport compartment only) and use the software to reinforce concepts with the workshop problems.

Finally, at the end of the training session, participants will have the opportunity to play the Aqualibrium competition to test their newly acquired skills in hydraulics. The Aqualibrium competition is a fun way to learn about the complexity of network hydraulics. The aim of the competition is to distribute three litres of water equally between three reservoirs (containers) placed randomly on a grid of 16 points. Participants will build a pipe network between a water source and the three reservoirs using pipes of different diameters.
