Hydraulic Transient Analysis

 

 

What it is

 

Hydraulic transients are created when sudden changes in flow rates occur in pipeline systems. The pressures created may be high enough to damage or even cause catastrophic failure of hydraulic plants.

 

Services provided:

 

 

Research

-       Numerical modelling: characteristics method; dynamic modelling of hydro-pneumatic reservoirs; dynamic modelling of pumps (Sutter method).

-       Experimental: Development of data acquisition programs, using the "LabView" language, and signal processing.

 

Training

-       Courses at MSc & PhD level, Post-graduation programs in national and Brazilian universities.

 

Sponsors

-       EFACEC- EFAFLU, EDIA
