This course is run exclusively by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the internationally recognised leader in training for engineers and technical professionals.
Although largely unseen by the public, pumping systems are critical components of the systems that make water so easily accessible to so many around the world.
This two-day course, focusing particularly on municipal water and wastewater systems, presents the basics of pumping systems design and specifications for civil engineers.
Detailed descriptions and case studies present the hydraulic engineering design needed for successful pump station projects and for providing pumping systems with hydraulic flexibility.
As a participant in the course, you’ll learn how to design and specify successful pumping systems, develop a hydraulic grad line, discuss design blunders and how to avoid future errors.
This course is for you if you’re a civil, design, mechanical engineer, electrical engineer, a consulting engineer, a project manager, specification writer, construction and mechanical contractor, plant superintendents or operator, or an approval agency plan reviewer.
David J. Hanna, P.E., M.ASCE is professional engineer and graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with an MS in Environmental Engineering, and a BS in Marine Engineering/Mechanical from the United States Merchant Marine Academy.
Mr Hanna is a Professor at Ferris State University with faculty responsibilities in the construction management and surveying engineering programs. Before joining the university, he spent 18 years working for several consulting engineering and construction management firms.
He has designed numerous pumping stations and pumping systems associated with water and wastewater projects. His experience includes design, construction administration, construction installation and quality control, and startup of new facilities as well as evaluation and troubleshooting of existing pumping and treatment facilities.
He is a member of ASCE and has been an instructor with the ASCE Continuing Education Division since 1999.
