Design, Sizing and Equipment Selection for Thermal Fluid Systems

28 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Apply principles of thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid mechanics in component design of real thermal-Fluid systems.
  • Use analytical and empirical tools in the design and analysis of various thermal-fluid system components.
  • Evaluate technical alternatives while bearing in mind practical limitations and criteria.

The success in achieving productivity targets and improving existing processes depends on one’s understanding and ability to assess system performance, perform accurate design and sizing calculations, and diagnose and troubleshoot faults.

Participants in this course will learn how to design, size, select, and assess the performance of various components in commonly used thermal-fluid system such as: gas transporting systems (fans, compressors, and ducts), liquid transporting systems (pumps and piping), and heat exchanging systems (shell and tube, double pipe, plate and frame and cross-flow heat exchangers). The materials presented in this course are for individuals who have little background on the subject; while also providing valuable information for personnel with thermal-fluid systems experience.
