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.
