Vapor Compression Cycles
Tuesday March 10th, 2pm MST
This webinar explains how the toolbox approach of Thermal Desktop and FloCAD can be used to design and simulate vapor compression cycles at various levels of detail. Applications include heat pumps, automotive climate control, and refrigeration systems.
Working Fluid Mixtures
Thursday March 12th, 2pm MST
Working fluid mixtures can be as simple as air and water. Or as complex as ... well, air and water.
"Air" might be a simple perfect gas or a collection of real gases ... itself a mixture. "Water" might be a simple nonvolatile approximation of liquid water, or it might be a volatile liquid.
This webinar discusses mixture types, and repercussions such as pressure and temperature range limits. It illustrates both how to set initial conditions and how to determine what is going on in results.
