Simulating Tanks and Vessels (click to register)

Tuesday October 22, 9am MT (8am PT, 11am ET)

This webinar explains options for modeling partially-full tanks, cryostats, and other vessels using TD/FloCAD. Topics include phasic nonequilibrium ("twinned tanks"), initializing two-phase mixtures, Ports, and Compartments, HTP (enclosure) ties for heat transfer, and thermally-stratified tanks.

Thursday October 24, 9am MT (8am PT, 11am ET)

This webinar covers options for modeling pipelines using FloCAD Pipes. Topics include the various Pipe form options including choices for walls and heat transfer, customization and initialization, Ports with Pipes, and various options for dealing with horizontal and vertical two-phase flows including chilldown and purging.
