NIGERIAN INSTITUTION OF WATER ENGINEERS (NIWE) PRESENTS A 3-DAY TRAINING ON: 

Planning, Design and Modeling of Water Distribution/ Reticulation System Using Epanet

ABOUT EPANET
EPANET is software that models water distribution piping systems. EPANET performs extended period simulation of the water movement and quality behavior within pressurized pipe networks of any size.

TRAINING OBJECTIVES
The objective of the training is to teach participants the basics in planning, designing and modeling of water demand, and distribution using of EPANET. Participants will learn the fundamentals of practical design approach.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
The course is designed for professional researchers, civil engineers, project managers, water resource consultants, infrastructure consultants, and young engineers active in the environmental and water resources sector. It is especially for those involved in planning and management of infrastructures such as water supply system, urban design, telecommunication etc.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Planning and Design of water supply distribution networks-pipes, tanks, valves, pumps, etc.
  2. Planning, Design and Operational Management of fire hydrants for fire fighting.
  3. Optimization of water distribution network for maximum benefit, maximizing pumping energy and cost-integration of EPANET.
  4. Modeling and analysis of water quality in water distribution-contaminate movement, disinfectant residual and residence time of microbial decay.


EPANET provides a fully equipped, extended-period hydraulic analysis package that can:
Simulate systems of any size

  • Compute friction head loss using the Hazen-Williams, the Darcy Weisbach, or the Chezy-Manning formula
  • Include minor head losses for bends, fittings, etc.
  • Model constant or variable speed pumps
  • Compute pumping energy and cost
  • Model various types of valves, including shutoff, check, pressure regulating, and flow control
  • Account for any shape storage tanks (i.e., surface area can vary with height)
  • Consider multiple demand categories at nodes, each with its own pattern of time variation
  • Model pressure-dependent flow issuing from sprinkler heads
  • Base system operation on simple tank level, timer controls or complex rule-based controls
