New Page 1




General Scope:


The basic theoretical background to hydraulics in piping systems and system design and

analysis is covered, including efficient design.  Training makes use of AFT Fathom, AFT

Arrow and AFT Impulse (plus add-on modules) as well as hand calculations.  A discussion/question/answer format is also employed in order to maximize retention of

course material and theoretical concepts.  Some of the specific topics covered* are outlined

below.  All attendees will receive 4 CPD Points as approved by ECSA.
