FloCAD

Fluid Flow Analysis and Pipe Simulation

FloCAD® is a Thermal Desktop® software module that enables you to develop fully integrated thermohydraulic models for fluid flow and heat transfer. With FloCAD, the mechanics of building fluid flow models is very similar to that of building thermal models, with many of the commands applicable to both types of models. FloCAD models can be free-form (non-geometric), sketchpad style flow network modeling for abstraction and simplification, or they can be geometry-based by including objects such as pipe centerlines and cross-sections, complexly shaped vessels, or convection to finite difference of finite element representations of thermal structures.

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.
