Hi, I am working in an irrigation project, and we have to design the pumping station (10 vertical turbine pumps and 1 in stdby. There are channels for water transportation from the river and we want to use the Hidraulic Institute Standards configuration for the sump with the same calculate values), so I will appreciate if anyone can give recommendation about pump station design (in this case water coming from rivers with vertical turbine pumps)(books, web pages with photos,articles will help). Right now I am working in the sump design and I am using "Hidraulic Institute Standards", "Sulzer Centrifugal Pump Handbook" and "Pumping Station Design" by Sanks. One of my main concerns is about using or not using separating walls, because I know that sometimes is worse to use them. Other concern is to know more about vortexes formation. These books recommends Model Tests of Intakes, does anyone have done something like this?, does this represents the real pumping station?. Finally if anyone knows about companies that have gate, check and butterfly valves ranging from 30" up to 60" or more. Thank you in advance

Early Supplier Involvement has long been a strategy employed by manufacturers to produce innovative products. Now, it almost seems like a necessity. Because decisions made in the design phase can positively affect product quality and costs, this can help add value to OEM bottom lines. This white paper will discuss many facets of ESI, including why itâ€™s so valuable today, what challenges limit the benefits of ESI, how cost is impacted, and more. Download Now
This white paper describes what we see as the best practices to support a sustainable engineering process for autonomous vehicle design. It exposes how to use simulation and testing in common frameworks to enable design exploration, verification and validation for the development of autonomous cars at a system, software and full-vehicle level to drive a mature product development process for automated driving.

Remote access enables engineers to work from anywhere provided they have an internet connection. We surveyed our audience of engineers, designers and product managers to learn how they use remote access within their organizations. We wanted to know which industries have adopted remote access, which software they are using, and what features matter most. Download Now
