Course Description


This training course will provide an overview of basic aspects of fluid flow and heat transfer as encountered in various engineering applications. Principles of calculation of flow in piping systems and oil and gas pipelines will be demonstrated and illustrated with examples from everyday engineering practice The flow in various types of pumps, compressors, turbines and other types of turbo-machines will be explained.

This GLOMACS training course will also cover problems of heat transfer as found in heat exchangers, boilers and condensers. Radiation heat transfer discussion will also include solar radiation and various similar applications. The heat transfer augmentation techniques and modern measurement techniques of flow and heat transfer will be presented in the course. Numerous practical examples of heat transfer problems will be selected and solved to illustrate the calculation methods of heat transfer as encountered in everyday engineering practice.
