Automated Optimal ACO Q-Brake flow control design within Flow

Register for this webinar to find out how to design ACO Q-Brake flow controls within Causeway Flow.

We will discuss the new vortex-based flow control within Causeway Flow for which the head and discharge relationship can be fine-tuned to optimise your surface water drainage design.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to design the ACO Q-Brake within Causeway Flow, whilst satisfying hydraulic constraints
  • How to increase the hydraulic efficiency and achieve a reduction in storage requirements
  • How to fine-tune designs to reduce storage costs and achieve an optimal design
  • How to specify multiple ACO Q-Brake devices in the same location at varying depths

You will be able to request a CPD Certificate at the end of the webinar.

  2. The advantage of using ACO Q-Brake flow control
  3. Designing ACO Q-Brake flow control within Flow
  4. Optimal design, achieving ultimate storage requirements
  5. Q&A session
