A Flight Simulator for Treatment Facilities: The New Frontier for Modelling Complete Treatment Plant Operations

Jason Curl, CH2M's Global Service Team Leader, Software Applications and Integration, and Matt Deavenport, CH2M's Global Technology Leader for Dynamic Simulation, talk about dynamic simulation software, which leverages powerful computational capabilities and is founded on industry standard hydraulics, controls and water quality calculations. Dynamic simulation software can be used to help mitigate and manage challenges with water conveyance and treatment infrastructure. In today's blog, Jason and Matt highlight CH2M’s Replica™ software, one tool that can be utilized to evaluate the abundant operational data that exists and fully understand the changing water quality, hydraulics and controls in an operational facility.
