COURSE TITLE: Plumbing System Design
COURSE NO: M05-011
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Plumbing System Design
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides basic design criteria pertinent to the design of plumbing systems. This course may be used for conceptual design in the absence of any more appropriate information. This course identifies and outlines the types of drainage systems (sanitary and storm water), effluent disposal, supply water distribution systems and hot water systems, appropriate for your needs, together with the wise system design & energy conservation.

 

Plumbing is the skilled trade of working with pipes, tubing, and special fixtures for the distribution and use of water in a building and the drainage of waterborne waste. It is one of the most important aspects of the building design.

 

This 5 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical and HVAC engineers, process engineers, architects, building designers, contractors, energy auditors, facility managers who are involved in the design and installation of plumbing systems.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • PLUMBING CRITERIA: Economy, reliability, materials & construction, and protection of critical applications
  • DRAINAGE SYSTEMS: Sanitary systems, sumps & sump pumps, interceptors, chemical wastes, backwater valves, food waste grinders, floor drains, storm water drainage, downspouts, sub-soil drains, P-traps, venting requirements and combined sanitary and storm drainage system
  • WATER SUPPLY SYSTEMS: Criteria for supply water service, water hammer arrestors, booster systems, hydro-pneumatic system guidelines, hot water systems, type of units and circulation schemes, chilled water drinking systems, types of units and design
  • INSULATION OF PLUMBING SYSTEMS: Insulation requirements for the unfired water storage heaters, electric heaters, gas and oil fired heaters, re-circulated systems and miscellaneous systems
  • FUEL GAS SYSTEMS: Safety precautions of system pressure, pressure regulator location, seismic consideration and ventilation
  • ENERGY CONSERVATION: Guidelines for sizing and location of air and water source heat pumps, sources of heat (ground water, process fluid, buried pipe, solar etc.), heat recovery air conditioning systems, auxiliary condensers, de-super heaters, solar domestic hot water heater, point to use heaters, total energy recovery, cogeneration, power burners, flow control and cost of energy calculations

COURSE TITLE: Design of Potable Water Plumbing Systems
COURSE NO: M04-023
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Design of Potable Water Plumbing Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides comprehensive design methodology and underlying principles of plumbing water systems. This course addresses the design criteria for estimating potable water demand for residential and transitory use facilities.  This course is intended to provide basic information, which may be used for conceptual design in the absence of any more appropriate information.

 

Plumbing water distribution systems are designed on the idea of the most probable peak demand loading, which reflects the worst-case scenario for a system. These types of systems require different considerations than large-scale water distribution networks. The difference is primarily attributed to uncertainty regarding the use of plumbing fixtures, hence uncertainty in demand loadings.

 

This 4 PDH online course is aimed at architects, mechanical engineers, civil engineers, facility designers, health and environment professionals, energy auditors and anyone who wants a basic understanding of plumbing systems.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understand the factors influencing the potable water demand
  • Learn the model plumbing codes applicable to potable water plumbing systems
  • Learn the Hunter's method for approximating peak demand loadings on a building's water distribution system
  • Describe the terms maximum flow, average flow, maximum probable flow, continuous demand and intermittent demand
  • Understand the fixture unit concept to determine the rate of flow with a plumbing pipe
  • Learn with example the application of Hunter's curve and demand tables
  • Learn the American Water Works Association (AWWA) "Fixture Value Method for sizing service water mains for non-residential demands
  • Learn four approaches related to plumbing water pipe sizing
  • Understand the advantages and disadvantages of using copper v/s plastic pipe for potable water service
  • Understand the method of sizing booster water pump/s
  • Understand the regulatory requirements and system reliability considerations when analyzing or estimating water demands
