SewerGEMS/SewerCAD, Sewer System Modeling

This training class includes discussions and hands-on workshops on collection system hydraulics, new system design, master planning, capacity analysis, and rehabilitation, for wastewater collection systems. In addition to instruction on how the models work, students complete hands-on exercises using SewerGEMS and SewerCAD software, a dynamic analysis tool that can run directly within the GIS environment. Both steady-state and extended-period simulations (through time) are presented in this course, as well as gravity and pressure system components. Attendees learn to customize plan and profile sheets, tabular reports and sanitary and wet-weather loadings. Exercises apply SewerGEMS and SewerCAD tools to leverage existing GIS and database information to build models and populate loadings. Analyses of combined sewer systems are also covered in this course.

Muhannad have 15 years extensive consultancy in H&H and GIS experience that’s make him able to help the people absorbs the technology and get the max of the technology to achieve their goals in the water Infrastructure.

The experience accumulated from two integrated Platform “H&H and GIS” in many projects has provided me with the ability to promote and implement industry best practices on key topics such as management of aging infrastructure, non revenue water reduction, waste water management and energy efficiency and Water and Waste Water Deigns.

On my current role I strongly contributed for planning and execution with great success of Bentley’s water sales plans for MEA. I frequently served as Bentley‘s spokesman for water technology in this region. I worked directly with some of the largest Owner/Operators and Consultants in MEA aiming for water excellence but also with small and medium organizations on their way there.
