Why Stratified Tanks Stir Me Up

Brent Cullimore

It might be apparent by now that I get bothered by silly or strange things. But what’s the point of even having a pet peeve if you can’t enjoy it?

Thermally stratified tanks bother me.  Fill a tank partially full of cryogenic liquid, leave it alone for a few hours … maybe even days. Even with great insulation, you’ll have a heat leak into the tank. The liquid will boil at the wall perhaps, and may also vaporize at the surface. The pressure will build slowly.

From beginning to advanced, here's your chance to learn how to use the powerful parametric and customization features in Thermal Desktop and SINDA/FLUINT. Click on each title to learn more, or to register.

Introduction to Two-phase Flow

September 24, 2-3pm MDT

This webinar introduces basic concepts in two-phase flow modeling including quality, void fraction, flow regimes, slip flow, pressure drops and accelerations, and heat transfer.

No knowledge of CRTech software is required. However, references to the corresponding FloCAD features will be made to assist users of that product.
