This course teaches you all the fundamentals of performing water hammer analysis using BOSfluids.

Background knowledge about water hammer phenomena and analyses methods are provided as well as tutorials in performing such analyses in the BOSfluids software. Results are discussed in detail to provide a solid understanding of their interpretation. Next to different water hammer scenarios and their analysis also many real-life cases are provided and associated mitigation measures are discussed.

After this course you are a confident user of BOSfluids that understands good design practices and analysis methods for water hammer phenomena in piping systems.

The course allows you to learn at your own pace and is fully provided online. You receive 1-year unlimited access to all modules, which allows you to perform them over again when you need to refresh knowledge for your work projects.

The course consists of 7 online, self-paced learning modules and 4 interactive, online live sessions with the instructor. Recordings of the live sessions and related training content are provided through our online portal.

Self-paced modules & live sessions
This course consists of 7 self-learning modules combined with 4 instructor-led group sessions (online) in which participants can ask questions to the instructor which are be discussed, as well as questions submitted in the self-learning modules. After each live session the recording of that session, used slides and exercise documents are made available to participants on the learning portal.

You receive 1-year unlimited access to the course. This allows you to watch content again if this is beneficial for your daily work activities.

The live sessions are scheduled together with the customer and are private for their team only. 

After the course participants receive 1-year unlimited access to all course content including recordings of the live sessions. This allows them to watch videos or recording live sessions again whenever required to refresh knowledge for daily work activities.

A personal digital certificate will be made available to each participant upon full attendance and completion of the self-learning modules.
