Solve Plant Hydraulics Questions Using Computational Fluid Dynamics
April 29, 2015, 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
This webinar will provide viewers with a general understanding of what computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling is and how it can be used as a design tool for treatment plant design. The webinar will present case studies to show how CFD has been used to answer critical hydraulic questions.
Pipeline R&R Planning: Costs/Benefits of Advanced Analytical Approaches
May 6, 2015, 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
In this webinar analytical approaches will be described for devising pipeline replacement forecasts. The focus will be on the benefits and cost (mostly in terms of data requirements) of using advanced analytical approaches. To create the forecasts, the right utility data is needed, which has to be mined from utility databases, and cleaned and formatted. Increasing amounts of the right data enables a utility’s successful application of sophisticated approaches that will enhance the accuracy of the forecasts. What data is needed and how to prepare the data will be explained, and various approaches that can be used to analyze the data will be described and evaluated.
Inspect Collection Systems & Optimize Cleaning
May 20, 2015, 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Utilities are faced with huge decisions about where, when, by what means, and how much to invest in their pipe replacement programs. With a planning tool that uses real-life structural and nonstructural factors, utilities can use existing sewage collection system data to begin the process of prioritizing and budgeting a pipeline-replacement program. The tool then uses new pipe-condition information as that information is collected to improve the reliability of the planning effort.
