Two sessions - January 10 and 17, 2024 11 AM-3:30 PM ET ASME and CFturbo, Inc. are thrilled to announce their first joint online course about hydraulic design, simulation, and optimization. This course will teach fundamental design methodology for axial, mixed-flow, and centrifugal pumps. In four two-hour lectures, we will provide the basic knowledge of hydraulic design and its application in modern conceptual design software. Every attendee will receive a certificate and a CFturbo license valid for two months for practicing. A follow-up meeting for general Q&A is planned for mid of July. Cost: $175 per attendee (includes a two-month license from CFturbo) Presenters: All lecturers have graduated in Mechanical Engineering and received their master’s or Ph.D. degrees from the University of Dresden in Germany, focusing on Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, and Turbomachinery. • Dr. Gero Kreuzfeld, After finishing his research at the University and working for VSX on pump selection software, Gero has dedicated himself to Turbomachinery design for over 20 years. He was one of the co-founders of CFturbo GmbH in 2008, and since then, he has been a Managing Director of the company, mainly overseeing the entire software product development. - Dr. Oliver Velde received a Ph.D. at the University of Technology Dresden in 2002. He held several positions in the German industry before joining CFturbo GmbH in 2008, and he is now the company's Senior Scientist. - Ralph Peter Mueller started as a development engineer at General Motors before he founded CFDnetwork in 1993, a CFD consulting firm. Then he became a co-founder of CFturbo GmbH in 2008, and since 2017 he has been the President of CFturbo, Inc. in Brooklyn, NY. - Sascha Henoch studied Mechanical Engineering, focusing on CFD Modeling for internal combustion engines. He has been working at CFturbo GmbH for over five years, primarily focusing on CFD workflow automation and optimization methods. Register today:
