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 consists of 6 interactive, online live sessions provided by the instructor. Recordings and related training content are provided through our online portal.

Results

After this course, you...

  • have a solid understanding of water hammer phenomena,

  • can perform water hammer analysis of basic scenarios in BOSfluids,

  • know how to interpret pressure surge results,

  • understand the influence of cavitation in piping systems,

  • are familiar with the BOSfluids solvers,

  • know how to link your results to pipe stress analysis software,

  • have seen numerous real-life cases of water hammer phenomena in industrial piping,

  • know different mitigation measures and their applicability

  • are capable of assessing pressure surge reports to take actions for mitigation of their system at hand.

This course is based on the latest release of the BOSfluids software (v6.0.4).

Who should attend this course:

  • Users of BOSfluids that want a solid understanding of the software, analysis techniques and backgrounds.

  • Those involved with performing pressure surge analysis.

  • Engineers that need to be able to understand reporting of pressure surge analysis for their system at hand.

Prerequisites:

    • No prior knowledge of BOSfluids is required.

    • A basic understanding of piping systems is beneficial.

Level: Intermediate

This course consists of 6 instructor-led live sessions which consists of presentations, demonstrations and discussions of questions. During each session, participants can ask questions to the instructor (through chat or microphone) which will be answered. After each live session the recording of that session, used slides and exercise documents are made available to participants to view again. If desired by the instructor, exercise files are provided at the end of a session that will be discussed in the next session. These should be performed by the participant before they are discussed in the upcoming live session.

Access to the course
After your purchase is confirmed you receive an account to the EngineeringTrainer online learning portal, where you find the course welcome chapter and instructions on how to join the live sessions. Sessions are held using the software GoToMeeting and a log-in link is provided for each session through the portal. A test link is provided from the start such as to test if you are able to properly join the sessions prior to the first session. Live sessions can be joined using any device, including tabled and mobile. 

You receive 6-months unlimited access to the course. This allows you to watch content again if this is beneficial for your work projects.

FAQ

This course consists of 6 instructor-led live sessions which consists of presentations, demonstrations and discussions of questions. During each session participants can ask questions to the instructor (through chat or microphone) which will be answered.

After each live session the recording of that session, used slides and exercise documents are made available to participants to view again. If desired by the instructor, exercise files are provided at the end of a session that will be discussed in the next session. These should be performed by the participant before they are discussed in the upcoming live session.

Exercise files can be downloaded, these can include .pdf files with the exercise questions, software models or other file types. Videos will not be available for download, but can be accessed directly with your account on the portal. If slides are used in the videos or live sessions these can be viewed separately as well through the portal, but are not available for download. You receive 6-months unlimited access to the course. This allows you to watch content again if this is beneficial for your work projects.
