Flow of Liquids Through Pipe Systems

Learn the practical aspects of basic liquid pipe hydraulics!

1 PDH / 0.1 CEU

Learn the practical aspects of basic liquid pipe hydraulics!

Join prolific speaker Dr. David T. Williams for this live, educational webinar discussing the theory of steady state pipe mechanics (both open channel and pressurized flow), non-compressible fluid characteristics, pipe network components, and the design of basic pipeline systems as well as surge considerations and optimization.

This course will cover overall mass and energy balances in pipe flow; pipe terminology; pipe roughness, friction factor, and flow resistance coefficients for different flow regimes; engineering equations (Hazen-Williams formula); resistance coefficients and equivalent length for flow elements; and pipe size selections.

Discussion topics include the energy of steady state liquids in an open channel and pressurized pipe, components of a pipeline network, major and minor hydraulic losses, and pipe design and sizing.

Take this course to become knowledgeable of the basic pipe hydraulic equations and how they are used to size pipes and determine the necessary components of a pipe system to achieve distribution objectives!

Learning Objectives

By participating in this webinar, attendees will:

  • Describe the different phenomena related to open channel and pressurized pipe flow
  • Summarize major and minor energy losses in a pipe system
  • Explain the thought processes of pipe network design
  • Discuss the concepts of flow optimization
  • Learn how pipeline engineers design the components of a pipeline system
  • Find out why different equations are needed depending on open channel or pressurized situations
  • Be familiar with the practical aspects of pipeline design
  • Determine the dimensional and coefficients input requirements for pipe design
  • Become technically conversant with pipe design professionals

* Presentations are scheduled for approximately one hour with a 15-20 minute question and answer session to follow. Presentation may exceed scheduled time.
* Each state and certification agency has different requirements; it is your responsibility to know what they are. Note that 1 PDH = 0.1 CEU.
* Purchase of this course allows you access to the presentation(s) for 6 months from the order date.
