This self-study course is designed to be taken at your convenience and on your own schedule. You have 90 days to finish the course from the time of purchase.

When designing a hydraulic delivery circuit, a working knowledge of all of the components and how they operate helps ensure optimum performance, efficiency, and safety. It also prevents potentially expensive system malfunctions and damage.

This self-study course presents the fundamentals for the design of gas or vapor piping systems. It covers the basic principles that govern fluid flow in these piping systems, including how to apply Bernoulli's theorem. It also discusses how to apply a variety of calculations to measure fluid flow, including the Rational Formula, Darcy’s equation, and the Panhandle and Weymouth empirical formulas, and how to calculate pressure drop of flow in pipe. The course will also help you effectively evaluate design options for new service requirements.

You will learn to:

  • Explain the basic principles that govern the fluid flow in the gas or vapor piping
  • Explain how to apply Bernoulli's theorem to fluid flow in the gas or vapor piping
  • Perform a variety of calculations relating to pipe flow, velocity, and pressure relating to hydraulic gas or vapor moving through circular pipes
  • Explain the basic principles that govern the fluid flow in the gas or vapor piping
  • Provide estimates using the friction factor for different flow regimes
  • Explain the effects and dependence of fictional pressure drop on pipe flow
  • Apply a variety of calculations to measure fluid flow through gas or vapor piping, such as the Rational Formula, Darcy’s equation; and the Panhandle and Weymouth empirical formulas
  • Identify items to consider when selecting the final pipe size for design
