Length: 43 days
Participants in this online, instructor-supported 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 throughout the course.
