Description: This video is presented by Martin Pflanz, P.E. who is currently the Haestad Learning Product Manager. He has been with Bentley Systems since 2006 and comes from a consulting background where he had been using the Haestad Methods Solutions in his everyday workflow. In this video he will cover the calibration of steady-state models, the principles behind them, as well as the use of field data and data collection techniques. You will be provided with an overview of the different calibration methods and types of calibration available. You will also learn about C-Factor test, roughness test procedures and be provided with tips on calibration.
In this video Senior Product Manager, Thomas Walski, Ph.D., P.E., D.WRE discusses the pump selection process and the various WaterCAD/GEMS tools that will help you to solve pump selection issues. You will learn about generating and reviewing system head curves, as well as how the pump station element in WaterCAD/GEMS is used. You will be shown how to generate combination pump curves and how to interpret what they are showing you. Pressure dependent demands, dead end systems, and energy costing will also be discussed. Note: This video applies to WaterCAD/GEMS V8i (SELECTseries 2) and newer.
- Explain the pump selection process;
