The Water Networks Modelling training in EPANet was conducted in Pune on 15th and 16th of December 2012. The training was conducted at the Hotel Studio Estique in City Centre and consisted two 6hr sessions of hands on experience in modelling water supply schemes. Trainees were from varied brackgrounds from consultancies and academics to NGO. We had attendees from Infosys, Ramky Infrastructure Ltd, CEPT University, Aga Khan Foundation and JMC Project Ltd. The trainees were provided with softwares, step by step guide to modelling and various resources to help with water networks modelling.
The training focused on hands on experience in using EPAnet to model various water supply elements, importing and exporting networks, integration with AutoCAD and Excel and analysing the network to get optimised result. The training session also included modelling practical situations in water supply where borewells, BPTs, pumping stations, pumping mains, storage tanks etc are involved.
All our trainees gave a very good feedback about the content, instructor and the overall training. The trainees were also provided with certificates in water networks modelling using EPANet.
The community Engineer is not yet another site for knowledge transfer. This has been designed to empower and support engineers at grass root level to work more efficiently in contributing to the growth of the country. This is for the inexperienced, who needs exposure to best practices and tools to help them perform better. Purposefully hence this is not a forum for state of the art technologies, but for a practical approach to our all the more practical problems.
