CRTech Consulting

Custom Software Solutions

C&R Technologies ("CRTech") provides best-of-class user-extensible thermal design and fluid flow software, which allows us to provide custom software solutions to our customers. We can extend our codes to meet your unique needs by adding custom components, subroutines, enhanced fluid capabilities, or creating unique APIs (Advanced Programmer Interfaces) and integration tools for concurrent engineering. If you have unique requirements demanding custom solutions, please contact us.

Consulting Services

There may be times that you are not able to purchase our software, learn how to use it, and solve your problem within your budget and time constraints. CRTech welcomes the opportunity to solve this dilemma for you. Our staff of engineers (mechanical, chemical, and nuclear) individually have from 15 to 35+ years of experience.

We offer a full analysis consulting service for just this problem. We build your model, solve your problem, and deliver the solution and the model to you using our software. The problem will be set up for you to make changes and easily rerun the model to get new answers. We can deliver a report on the results we obtained, along with detailed instructions on how you can modify the model and rerun it for additional analysis cases. For more information on this service, please contact us or request a quote.

Advanced Pipes in FloCAD
Thursday November 14, 9-10am MT (8-9am PT, 11am-noon ET)
This webinar introduces advanced features for FloCAD pipes in addition to working with complex geometry. Complex geometry includes interior fins and surfaces for heat transfer, flow around enclosed objects, annular flow, concentric pipes, and more. FK Locators and TEEs as modeling objects will also be introduced.
Custom Heat Transfer and Pressure Drops
Tuesday November 19, 2-3pm MT (1-2pm PT, 4-5pm ET)
Do you know what the default assumptions are in FloCAD, and whether or not they apply in your situation? Do you know how far you can go past that starting point? The answer: pretty far. There are numerous mechanisms in FloCAD for adjusting factors, scaling uncertainties, and applying different or supplemental correlations. This webinar summarizes the options available to you to customize your flow models to make sure that they apply to each new situation you encounter.
Heat Exchangers: Detailed and System-level
Thursday November 21, 2-3pm MT (1-2pm PT, 4-5pm ET)
This is two webinars in one. The first explains the use and assumptions behind the FloCAD HX system-level modeling object. The second webinar describes detailed-level modeling of complex heat exchanger passages, including application of Compact Heat Exchanger (CHX) methods.
Starting in 2020, we will begin offering Introduction to Thermal Desktop and Introduction to RadCAD as either in-person training or online training, alternating between online and in-person every three months. The training uses lectures and demonstrations to introduce you to basic Thermal Desktop and RadCAD usage. Hands-on tutorials provide practice building models and interpreting results (tutorials are completed by students outside of the online class time).
 
The next training class will be an online format in January 2020:
  • Introduction to Thermal Desktop (and SINDA) - A three-part series on January 14, 16, and 21 from 9am to 12pm, Mountain time
  • Introduction to RadCAD - January 23 from 9am to 12pm, Mountain time
For up-to-date schedules, fees, and policies, visit our Product Training page. To register for the class above, complete our registration form and select "Online" for the Training Format.
 
If you are interested in product training for your company based on your schedule, please contact us to obtain a quote for training between 8-12 attendees. We can come to your facility or the lectures can be presented online. Descriptions of the available classes can be found in our course catalog.
