Wanda

Wanda is an advanced, interactive software package to support the hydraulic design process of your pipeline system. The program is used for the hydraulic analysis of steady and unsteady flow conditions in arbitrary configured pipeline networks. Primary subjects to evaluate and optimise a hydraulic design are flow capacity, velocity, flow distribution, dynamic behaviour, economy, safety and control principles. With a hydraulic design, you can direct the mechanical and process engineering to an effective and efficient system.

Wanda can be applied to a variety of types of pipeline systems, like fire fighting systems, sewer systems, water distribution networks, industrial plants, oil pipelines, water cooling systems, hydropower plants and transportation systems for chemical products.

This site provides information on how to use Wanda, it also contains a FAQ and How-To section. For more information on how to buy Wanda please visit the main Deltares systems website or contact us at sales@deltaressystems.nl

Wanda 4.4 Release!

Deltares is pleased to announce the availability of WANDA 4.4. This release is the fifth release of the WANDA 4 series and includes several new features and improvements.

New features include:

  • Option to show flow direction in pipes.
  • Moving average control component. Support for simple, cumulative, weighted or exponential averages.
  • Numerical stability improvements to the cavitation model, and the X-, T- and Y-junctions.
  • WANDA Locks domain (beta); modelling salt intrusion through shipping locks.
  • Liquid-to-Locks and Liquid-to-Heat converters. This allows you to use all available Liquid components in a Heat or Locks models.
  • And several other new features and fixes!

Wanda 4.4 can be downloaded from the Deltares Download Portal.

 

Deltares presented 4 papers, and on top of that 4 other groups presented papers including WANDA modelling results. These papers were authored by Innovyze Australia, Royal Haskoning DHV and research groups from TU Graz and Trondheim. We are proud of such an international presence of WANDA at this conference.
Full Proceedings are available via BHR Group: confx2@bhrgroup.co.uk
