PD624 - Two-Phase Flow and Heat Transfer

Pricing and Availability

Pricing and dates are pending, please check back.



Participants in this course will gain a phenomenological understanding of two-phase flow and heat transfer in engineering processes and components, as well as an ability to compute two-phase flow and heat transfer for common situations.  The focus is on single component/two phase systems (e.g., a liquid and its vapor), which is the most common, yet most difficult to model.

The course approaches two-phase flow and heat transfer in a practical way. Advantages and disadvantages of the various models that are being used in purchased programs are explained. Basic quantitative calculation methods will be derived, and their use demonstrated in class exercises on participants’ computers.  An in-class demonstration will be conducted when facilities permit.

Each participant will receive a set of class notes and a copy of the textbook, Boiling Heat Transfer and Two-Phase Flow (2nd edition), by L.S. Tong and Y.S. Tang.

The instructor recommends that students bring their laptops.

You Will Learn To
 - Describe two-phase flow patterns and pressure loss, with and without heat transfer
 - Explain the fundamentals of boiling heat transfer
 - Explain boiling on external and internal surfaces
