This course illustrates the benefits of using Mathcad to carry out hydraulic calculations required to determine the pressure in a pipeline of known diameter when the Darcy Weisbach (D-W) friction factor is not known. Mathcad is a software application that is used worldwide for doing engineering calculations. Once the learning curve is mastered it can save valuable time and effort in carrying out a wide variety of engineering calculations while reducing a variety of common errors, thus making it a valuable tool in the engineering profession.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
