Two Day Training Course on Transient Modeling and Design
Of Surge Protection Systems Using Pipe2016 September 15&16, 2017

KYPIPE LLC and Water Hammer Engineering Services are jointly organizing a training course on Transient Modeling and Design of Surge Protection Systems on September 15 and 16, 2017 in Cairo, Egypt. This course shall provide an overview of hydraulic transients in pipeline systems, discuss causes and effects of water hammer on pipeline systems, and train the participants on how to model water hammer and design appropriate surge protection systems using Pipe2016: Surge software. The training course will include an extensive discussion on the various surge protection methods and devices including one-way surge tanks, standpipes, air vessels including bladder vessels and hybrid vessels, non-slam air valves, dynamic air valves, pressure relief and surge anticipation valves.

Thorough understanding of water hammer phenomena can also boost the confidence levels in selecting and implementing appropriate surge protection systems, and more importantly can help reduce overall cost of the project by allowing the designers to carefully balance pipeline and surge protection costs. The training course will present several diverse case studies from various parts of the world covering small and large transmission main systems.
