The aim of the module is to prepare engineers for the process of designing a complete pipe-work system for delivering heating or chilled water to terminal units in buildings. These types of systems typically distribute heating or cooling water to radiators, fan coil units, chilled beams, radiant panels or chilled ceilings.

The module is primarily intended for junior to intermediate engineers who are being asked to design a system for the first time.  However, the module is not for the complete beginner. There's an assumption from the outset that the user will have completed a college or university course on mechanical engineering, or possibly a course on building services engineering, and so will have some understanding of the basic fluid dynamic principles that underlie system design. They will also have access to the support of a more senior engineer within their organisation who can guide them on the procedures and protocols for completing design drawings and specification documents.

Make your way through this course at your own pace with the following:  

  • Hot & Chilled Water Pipework Systems Topics
  • Additional Resources
  • Three Activity Pages
  • CPD Certificate on completion

This course covers: 

  • Welcome
  • Introduction
  • Sizing pipes and calculating system pressure losses
  • Valves                            
  • Features to facilitate pre-commissioning cleaning                                           
  • System design
  • Conclusion

CIBSE online learning courses are suitable for those wishing to enhance and support their current knowledge base, as well as graduates within an engineering discipline. 

​Each unit has been peer-reviewed and tested through this group. The units allow students to take a coordinated journey through an individual topic or a series of topics. The units form the backbone of several corporate training schemes.

  • Size and select the pipe-work
  • Size and select the system pumps
  • Recognise alternative valve types
  • Plan for pre-commission cleaning
  • Design a complete system
  • (Primary and secondary circuits)
