Description

Dear students,The most diverse substances are transported and distributed in piping systems every single day. They include aggressive fluids in the chemical industry, hydrocarbons in petrochemistry or steam for energy transmission.Chemical engineers who are designing these piping systems and specifying associated equipment like valves, pumps and flow meters probably face more fluid flow problems than any other. Pressure drop calculations help the engineer size pipes and ducts, determine performance requirements for pumps and fans, and specify control valves and flow meters. And although the underlying theory is rather simple, its practical application can be confusing due to the empirical nature of important correlations, multiple methods for expressing parameters, many variable inputs, and alternative units of measurement.Designed around a series of practical examples which we work through to a solution, this unique training course is an essential guide to understanding the flow of fluids through pipe, valves and fittings. This understanding is a prerequisite for a successful design & flawless operation of your plant and piping system.The course features 5 major items :1- An in-depth information on physical properties of fluids (weight density, specific gravity, viscosity, vapor pressure…) and how to calculate them using Flow of Fluids Excel Workbook*2- An in-depth information on compressible and incompressible fluid flow through piping systems, valves, pumps & flow meter devices (Orifice plates, Flow Nozzles & Venturi Meters) and how to calculate them using Flow of Fluids Excel Workbook*3- An iterative method for sizing flow meters and valves4- An in-depth discussion on cavitation and choking in control valves5- A flow problem section with 25 concrete examples to help you practice and reinforce your understandingMany images, equations, graphs, 3D animations and solved flow problems can be found throughout, increasing the value of this course as an educational tool and industrial reference for personnel involved in the fluid handling industries.So this course is not only of use to practising and professional engineers to whom a knowledge of the behavior of fluids is of crucial importance in cost-effective design and efficient operation of process plants and piping systems but also intended as a study guide for undergraduates in process, chemical, petrochemical & petroleum engineering disciplines.So with no further ado, check out the free preview videos and the curriculum of the course and we look forward to seeing you in the first section.Hope to see you thereWR TrainingSpread the wings of your knowledge* The Flow of Fluids Excel Workbook is NOT included in this course and is sold separately.
