Octave were appointed to provide Mechanical Design Consultancy Services for the Mersey Tunnels Surface Water Drainage System Upgrade.
The scope of the works was developing an existing partial design, based on some design information that already existed.
Designers risk assessment.
Rainfall base data assessment for drainage system capacity assessment.
Piping and flange specification, e.g. wall thickness design.
Piping hydraulic calculations, e.g. flow rates, velocities and pressure losses.
Piping thermal displacement assessment and stress analysis.
Pump duties and operating sequences.
Total system capacity assessment with limitations and consequences.
