Dr. Kunal Dutta-Roy will present, a Webinar on Hydraulics Analyses for Pipelines, Pumps and Compressors on May 12, 2022

Course Description

This one-day seminar will cover both engineering fundamentals as well as practical pipeline industry applications with an emphasis on hydraulic modeling and flow assurance considerations. Classroom descriptions will be interspersed with worked example problems that will highlight methodologies, discuss practical options, and provide a hands-on approach to engineering analysis and modeling flow phenomena in both single-phase gas and liquid pipelines, as well as multiphase flowlines.

This training will provide engineers with an understanding of the common practices in the hydraulic analyses for pipelines, pumps, and compressors, including the assessment of throughput capacity, estimation of line sizing, prediction of pressure and temperature profiles, and the analysis of surge conditions.
Lunch break at 12:00 noon for half an hour.
Short breaks throughout
