OnDemand Training | Fundamentals of OpenFlows HAMMER

The proper design of water supply systems in both urban and rural areas requires careful consideration of hydraulic transients. Neglecting this critical aspect can lead to devastating consequences such as damage to pipes and equipment, endangerment of operator safety, and significant loss of capital investment.

OpenFlows HAMMER, a powerful software tool, can be utilized for hydraulic transient analysis. By leveraging advanced numerical algorithms, OpenFlows HAMMER enables the simulation of fluid behavior in pipeline systems, allowing engineers and operators to identify high-risk areas where surge pressures may occur. In this training, you will learn more about the general capabilities of OpenFlows HAMMER software, including:

  • Basic of Transient Analysis with HAMMER Workspace.
  • Understand model layout to save time.
  • How to use Wave Speed Calculator to determine the wave speed for a pipe or set of pipes.
  • Modify the transient calculation options.
  • Create a profile.
  • How to model a power failure using the transient properties for a pump.
  • How to compute, review and animate your results using the Transient Results Viewer.
  • Scenario and alternative Manager with surge protection device.
  • How to model multiple surge protection strategies in a single file.
  • How to model Hydropneumatic Tank and Air valve as Surge Protection Device.
