KNOWLEDGE BASE EXHIBITS AT THE CAPE PENINSULA UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY (CPUT)

The CPUT Graduate Fair was held on Wednesday 7 and Thursday 8 September at the major sports hall of the Bellville Campus. Knowledge Base was one of the exhibitors at the exhibition and took the opportunity of promoting the multiple uses of civil engineering and CAD design to students and learners.

The exhibition was attended by over four thousand students from various course disciplines and students were encouraged to participate in both Civil Designer and AllyCAD competitions in order to increase an awareness of the software. Civil Engineering students were also introduced to the Knowledge Base Recruitment service, a resource that was greatly welcomed by all the graduates.

SEWER FUNCTIONALITY

Sewer is a foul water network analysis and design module that combines interactive drawing functions with powerful design functionality. The program allows for comprehensive network analysis. You can analyze the entire network, a portion of the network or a sub-network. Flows are attenuated according to the inflow method while internal culvert dimensions are used for flow calculations in order to ensure hydraulic accuracy.

 

Sewer Design

Click to Enlarge

 


Sewer calculates culvert size, slope inlet and outlet level, flow, capacity, velocity, flow depth and hydraulic grade in a matter of seconds. The program also models a network that consists of both existing and new culverts. Culverts that do not have a size, invert level and/or slope will automatically be designed according to the design parameters. In most cases, multiple inflows may be specified at each node and may be user-defined in the inflow parameters tables.

You can easily simulate the complex system of flows and overflows that are often found in modern towns and cities. The design will take into account the hydraulic and geometric relationship between the different branches in the network. Once you have completed the analysis, the network may be displayed according to specific criteria with minimum effort. This powerful module is ideal for the data capture of foul water GIS models as data may be transferred between Sewer and MAP at any time.

TAKING A FLYER ON A DREAM

Frederik Mülder has a dream. It's been with him since he was a little boy. Now, many youngsters want to be pilots; some want to fly fighter jets, others aspire only to helicopters, and some daredevils fantasize about being acrobats, tumbling crazily amongst the clouds. Frederick simply wants to fly the big jets and be an airline pilot.
