Flowmaster in the Energy Industry
Flowmaster has been in use by designers and operators of power stations since the 1980's. From safeguarding against pressure surge in cooling water systems to understanding the pressure drop characteristics of gas networks, Flowmaster offers an accurate and reliable means for engineers to interrogate and understand their systems. The latest release of the software includes the capability to model two-phase steam through the full Rankine cycle, allowing users to predict flow regimes within the pipe and whether or not critical heat flux is occurring.
The day will be an opportunity for attendees to learn more about the software as well to try out the software during hands on sessions.
What You Will Learn
- The basics of model creation and the modelling of gas, liquid and two-phase systems.
- An overview of how to create and interpret transient Flowmaster results
- How Flowmaster has already been applied to systems in the power generation industry
About the Presenter
Prior to joining Flowmaster in 2008, John Murray had spent 7 years working in the field of experimental and computational aerodynamics. John joined Flowmaster as an Application Engineer and was manager of the technical support team upon acquisition by Mentor Graphics in 2012. Since then, John has been focussing on how Mentor's Mechanical Analysis Division can best serve users in the Process and Energy sectors.
Who Should Attend
- Designers and engineers involved with water, steam or gas systems
