Product Training

We provide videos and support to assist customers in learning our software, but there is no replacement for live, comprehensive training. Our courses provide a mixture of lecture and hands-on experience working with demonstration models to provide an overview of heat transfer and fluid flow modeling as well as familiarity with our software.

Custom Training: If you are interested in product training at your own facility, please contact us to obtain a quote for training between 8-12 attendees. Available courses can be seen in our course catalog

Standard Training: We schedule training classes open to all customers as shown below. These classes also provide a wonderful opportunity to meet thermal engineers in other industries. Our major training class, which starts with two days of Thermal Desktop training, is typically offered twice a year.

Introduction to Two-phase Flow

September 24, 2-3pm MDT

This webinar introduces basic concepts in two-phase flow modeling including quality, void fraction, flow regimes, slip flow, pressure drops and accelerations, and heat transfer.

No knowledge of CRTech software is required. However, references to the corresponding FloCAD features will be made to assist users of that product.

Introductory FloCAD Training

Class times: September 5, 10, and 12, 2019, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm 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- to three-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.
