Water Distribution Design & Modeling by Bentley WaterCAD / WaterGEMS

Bentley OpenFlows WaterGEMS Online Training


Bentley’s Hydraulic and Hydrological (H&H) modeling tools offer geospatially integrated engineering modeling solutions for water and wastewater projects and act as a comprehensive engineering tool for design and analysis as a water project governance through the IT corridor. Application of H&H soft tools connect every facet of projects and simplifying the complex project workflow in an easier format to make informed decisions. Tools address today’s water project challenges with easy to use features in line with Indian CPHEEO guidelines and have the flexibility to incorporate local state advisory principles along with best practices.

Urban water / Rural water supply projects
Intermittent water / 24×7 water scheme
Tentative/approximate cost of the projects
Expansion and rehabilitation of water distribution network

Why Bentley’s Infrastructure Tools?

Bentley offers fully integrated tools, which have capabilities to render an end-to-end range of functionality across the entire lifecycle of a project.

  • Designers and operators get a detailed picture of system behavior under various conditions before the system is being built and more accurately predict the way the system will react under various circumstances. It ultimately reduces disruption risks and improves system reliability in every stage of the project.

About Training

IFS Academy is Bentley Institute’s Authorised Product Training Partner and offers professional online training for users to master the capabilities on Hydraulic and Hydrology modeling tools and apply best practices to improve design skills, increase productivity, and enhance infrastructure project quality. This course will qualify participants to get acquitted with project modeling basics for project design and project operations.

  • Enabled participants to understand the importance and uses of hydraulic simulation models and comprehend the essential concepts of Modeling

  • Introduce different engineering workflow in project development

  • Demonstrate the utility of various forms of data from Geospatial to AutoCAD files (virtually any form of digital data) for projects

Brief Outline of training

This class begins with the basics of hydraulics theory, as it applies to water distribution modeling, then takes students through more advanced topics such as: working with multiple scenarios and alternatives; model creation; pump selection; steady-state analysis; extended-period simulation; fire flow analysis; identifying critical links or shortfalls within a water system; automating system calibration, design, model analysis, and Specific topics will include: developing system demands from geospatial data on land use or population, etc.; importing elevation data from digital elevation models; Students will become familiar with WaterCAD/WaterGems, sewercad sewergems online training and use the software to reinforce concepts with case studies or hands-on examples. As WaterCAD and WaterGEMS capabilities are the same throughout this course, users will gain an understanding of both software applications. Live training courses are very interactive. Students will continually engage with the instructor to ensure a successful learning outcome that includes a course assessment.

I have recently completed Bentley WaterCAD / WaterGEMS training from IFS Academy. IFS Academy is Bentley Institute Authorized Product Training Partner for Bentley Systems Software and they offer Bentley Institute Authorized Certificate of Completion to the participants. They also give 1M trial license of the Software to the participants. WaterGEMS Faculty is from industry with vast experience in the field of Water and Waste Water distribution. We were really pleased with the training given by IFS Academy. We have been to several Water Network design and Analysis training elsewhere, the course by IFS is significantly better due to the qualified instructor and resources. We highly recommend IFS Academy for Bentley WaterGEMS Training to Students, Faculty and Working Professionals.
