Operators use the principles of hydraulics every day in managing and controlling the various processes within a treatment plant. An operator may not realize that he or she is applying these principles, yet has a thorough understanding of them. This webcast is designed to introduce operators to the basic concepts of hydraulics, as it applies to wastewater, including force and pressure, static, friction and velocity head, total dynamic head, friction loss in pipes and channels, pumping basics, and flow measurements. The presentation will give you a better understanding of how water flows through the treatment plant and what influences that flow.
