This course uses the BSRIA BG 30 Design Workflow for Water Distribution Systems as a framework for investigating hydronic systems, with a particular focus on correctly sizing pipework and pumps. The theory will see us go on a journey from the 1700s and Newtonian physics, through to the present day and the unanswered questions of fluid flow.
Attendees will leave with a practical understanding how to correctly design and commission the major components of a hydronic system.
They will build a basic calculator to assist with pipe-sizing decisions
- Understand the design process for piped systems.
- Correctly size pipework and emitters
- Deepen their understanding of the relationship between Pressure and Flow
- Pump duties and basic pump selection
- Recognise standard hydronic system configurations
- Junior Engineers
- Engineers whose first discipline is not Mechanical
- Technical Sales specialists
- Project manager's looking to deepen their understanding of piped systems
- Mechanical Engineers looking for an in-depth refresh of piped systems
- Contractors and Technical Services Managers wanting to improve their theoretical understanding
