Free Online FloCAD Training, October 2017

Introductory FloCAD Training
 

Class times: October 24, 25, and 26, 2017, 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. MDT daily
Cost: no charge (attendees must have an active support contract)

CRTech will be hosting introductory training for FloCAD (Flow Modeling in Thermal Desktop). This is our standard FloCAD class previously hosted in a classroom environment and now restructured for an online teaching environment.

The class will introduce single-phase fluid modeling concepts and how to build fluid models within the FloCAD work environment. Topics covered include an introduction to fluid modeling components, geometric versus non-geometric modeling options, working with FloCAD Pipes, solution control, and an introduction to path and pipe libraries.

The class will be broken into three two-hour sessions held over a 3 day period. The format will be online lecture and demonstration with opportunities to ask questions. Hands-on lab work will be provided to students to work on after each session. To gain the most from this class, students are encouraged to attend all three sessions.

Prerequisites: Attendees must have basic working knowledge of Thermal Desktop as many of its base features will not be covered in this class but their usage is required for FloCAD.

Eligibility Requirement: This class is a service to our customers. All attendees must have an active support contract. If you are unsure of your support status, please contact CRTech.

Given heat loads and material properties, what is the temperature of a plate? That's how our tools work by default. But you can reverse the question too: What heat load is needed to heat the plate one hundred degrees in ten minutes? That "goal seeking" problem is one example of optimization. Another more complex example might be: What set of orifice sizes should I use at the exits of my heat exchangers to achieve even flows without any one component overheating? 

Optimization, combined with Thermal Desktop Measures (thermocouple models), can also be used to automate the adjustment of uncertainties to better match available test data or CFD predictions.

Some uncertainties just can't be adjusted away. Or maybe you don't yet have test data and need to understand how tolerances and environmental variations affect your design.

All of the above tasks are part of our Advanced Design Modules. Come learn about them in a series of upcoming webinars:

All three webinars are at 1pm PT, 4pm ET.
