Pre-Conference Workshop

Wet Well and Pump Intake Hydraulics: Using Physical and Numerical Modeling Tools to Improve Pump Performance and Verify Pump Station Designs

Tuesday, April 17
1:00 PM - 1:50 PM
Location: Beavis, Sheraton

CWEA: 7.2 Contact Hours

$145 (Early Bird and Saver) / $174 (Full Rate after 3-30-18)

Practice Area: Other

This section of workshop will cover key considerations in the design and evaluation of wet well and pump intake hydraulics for waste water pump stations. The Hydraulic Institute Intake Standards (9.8-2012) will be reviewed. Both scale physical modeling and CFD modeling of pump intakes will be presented and discussed. The tools used for both design and troubleshooting will be presented.

Learner Outcomes:

Level: Intermediate; working knowledge of subject matter / journeyman level staff
