This seminar/workshop focuses on fluid statics, hydrodynamics & hydraulic machines for participants with little or no fluids background. It transitions from hydraulics concepts to laws, mathematical equations, sample problems & practical hydraulics case

Course Outline

After participating in this course you will be able to:
Solve hydrodynamics problems with better understanding of fluid statics and hydrostatics
Specify and select suitable hydraulic machines needed for your specific system head requirements on your projects
Analyze frictional head losses, pump head requirements, determine KW’s of hp’s required for development of certain fluid head
Determine the KW’s or MW’s generated under given hydraulic elevation head conditions, on hydroelectric projects


This seminar/workshop focuses on fluid statics, hydrodynamics and hydraulic machines for participants with little or no fluids background. It transitions from hydraulics concepts to laws, mathematical equations, sample problems and practical hydraulics case study examples. For those participants who possess prior fluids knowledge and experience, this seminar/workshop, serves as a refresher. It enables you to stay abreast of fluids and hydraulics engineering fundamentals. You receive PDHs that you may use to satisfy the professional development hour requirement, as established by provincial engineering associations or state boards for licensure maintenance.


• To review fundamental and intermediate concepts and principles associated with fluid statics and hydrodynamics.
• To train participants in analysis, mathematical formulation and solution of mainstream hydrostatic, hydrodynamics and hydraulic machine problems.

Who Should Attend

Civil engineers, electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, environmental engineers, chemical engineers, industrial engineers, project managers and technicians who wish to enhance their technical hydraulics knowledge.

Special Features
After review and illustration of principles and mathematical techniques pertaining to the hydrostatic and hydrodynamic systems, participants are given class assignment to solve a hybrid, hydrostatics/hydrodynamics problem. Having grasped analytical and mathematical techniques involved in hydrodynamic problems, with frictional head consideration, participants are given an opportunity to hone their skills through in-class, participative, exercise involving maximum flow rate, maximum head, and pump horsepower type calculations. Participants’ confidence in mathematical analysis associated with power flow from fluid to “wire” and “wire” to fluid is reinforced through hydraulic machine system exercises. All in-class exercises are conducted in teams of two to three participants under instructor guidance.

Note: Please bring a scientific/engineering type calculator.

Instructor: S. Bobby Rauf, P.E., C.E.M

Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
The course was very well presented and the course instructor was absolutely amazing.
Reviewed by 2013
Our instructor, Stephen Lamming, was outstanding and a true expert in his field. He was able to complement the technical air monitoring information with practical real life examples which was highly beneficial. He is an excellent communicator and was highly interactive with the course attendees. This course was recommended to me because Stephen Lamming does an outstanding job. I was very impressed with this course and have subsequently recommended it to my colleagues.
