Surge / Network Flow Distribution
MMI Engineering uses computational pipe network models to undertake surge analysis to determine transient pipeline pressure.
Surge suppression methods can also be assessed, such as suction and/or delivery vessels, relief valves, pressure sustaining valves or even pump flywheels to ensure the transient pressures do not exceed the pipeline rating or do not drop below atmospheric pressure, which may result in ground water ingress.
Network Flow Distribution
Computational analysis forms an essential part of the management of water distribution networks. This can be used to identify operational issues, such as shortfalls in supply or depleting reservoir levels.
The same analysis techniques can be used to optimise operation (and cost) and the design of extensions to the network. MMI Engineering has the capability and expertise to provide this service.
