Faced with costly power, it makes little sense to select pipe size by "guessing" at a particular size's effectiveness. This course presents numerous methods of pipe size selection.
The course explains how to understand and apply fluid mechanics principles in the determination of optimum pipe size. Because it has been found that the majority of practicing Engineers are less interested in deep analysis and physical reasoning behind bottom-line equations, this course provides practical pipe size selection formulas which minimize cumbersome theoretical explanations and mathematical derivations. This 'jump-to-the-chase' approach along with ample worked-out example problems enables a quick understanding of the underlying concepts. The course deals with process, petroleum, and gas flows, and touches lightly on plumbing applications.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
