Introduction to FloCAD (online)

FloCAD (Fluid Flow Modeling in Thermal Desktop) - This online class will provide an introduction to fluid modeling components within FloCAD. The class will be held over a 2-day period, with daily sessions running approximately 4 hours each (2 - 3 hours of presentation material plus instructor availability while working on tutorials). The class uses a mixture of lecture, demonstrations, and self paced tutorials to provide attendees with practice building fluid system models and interpreting results. Attendees must have basic working knowledge of SINDA and Thermal Desktop as these topics will not be covered but their usage is required for FloCAD.
