Co-UDlabs industrial workshop on Capacity problems and flow rate determination in pressurized systems

In the framework of Co-UDlabs’ training activities, the industrial workshop on flow rate determination of pumping stations and hydraulic structures will be organised online by Deltares, a partner in Co-UDlabs, on 17 November 2022. Free registration below!

Deltares invites you to participate in a one-day course on “Capacity problems and flow rate determination in pressurized systems” on 17 November 2022, from 10:00 to 16:00 (CEST). This is organized within the CoUDlabs project training activities. 

This online course/workshop targets practitioners who are either designing, building, or managing wastewater pressure mains. The following subjects will be addressed in the course:

  • Basics of (multiphase) hydraulics in pressurized systems
  • How to determine the performance of a pressurized system and to detect capacity problems
  • Different sources of capacity problems and how to identify them
  • The effect of air/gas pockets on capacity, energy consumption and what remedies are available
  • Methods to detect the presence of air/gas pockets
  • Several relevant case studies

The techniques and knowledge are the results of continuous research done at Deltares on pressurized systems design and operation. Also based on significant experience derived from a large Dutch Joint Industry Project on CAPacity losses in WasteWATer (CAPWAT) initiated by Deltares, TU Delft, and a selection of industrial parties in the period 2003-2010.

The course assumes that participants have a basic knowledge of hydraulics of pipelines and are familiar with the most important aspects of pumps and pumping stations.


This online course/workshop is part of the Delft Software Days 2022.

Registration is free but mandatory, please click here!

🚨Attention The number of places is limited to 60 participants – the remaining seats are 10.


Please check in early to test your audio and video.

We will open the session 10 minutes before the start of the session.
