is intended to serve as an introduction to fluid statics, hydrodynamics and
hydraulic machines for attendees with little or no fluids background. This
course transitions from hydraulics concepts to laws, mathematical equations,
sample problems and practical hydraulics case study examples. For those
attendees or participants who possess prior fluids knowledge and experience,
this course, is intended to serve as a refresher of the basics and an
introduction to intermediate level knowledge on the subject of hydrostatics and
hydrodynamics. As such, this course can be used to satisfy the Professional
Development Hour requirement, as established by State Boards and other
The Topics to be covered in this course
are as follows:
- Hydrostatics concepts and
- Hydrodynamics principles, laws
and analytical techniques.
- Application of Bernoulli, Darcy, Hazen-Williams,
Manning, Water Horsepower, and other hydrodynamics equations.
- Study of hydraulic machines
commonly applied in industrial and commercial environment.
- Review of “wire to water “and
“water to wire” power flow and efficiency
- Mathematical analysis involving matching
of system head requirements with available pump curve
After attending this seminar, the
