3D Pipe Flow and Heat Transfer Made Easy with SigmaPipe - Dr Rod Dry - Online

Date From: 17 March 2017
Location: Webinar
Description: SigmaPipe is a free, easy-to-use Windows software package for all engineers. It deals with pipe flow by combining conventional (plug flow) engineering calculations with 3D object programming in a video game-like environment. It allows time-poor engineers to solve problems such as orifice critical flow, valve characteristics and flow achievable with a given pump-line combination almost effortlessly. This webinar will provide a general introduction and software demonstration for those who would like to know more.
Event Type: Special Interest Groups
Venue: Online

Time: 08:00-09:00 GMT

Cost: Free of charge, open to all

SigmaPipe is a free, easy-to-use Windows software package for all engineers. It deals with pipe flow by combining conventional (plug flow) engineering calculations with 3D object programming in a video game-like environment. It allows time-poor engineers to solve problems such as orifice critical flow, valve characteristics and flow achievable with a given pump-line combination almost effortlessly. This webinar will provide a general introduction and software demonstration for those who would like to know more.

The system is aimed primarily at practising (non-specialist) engineers. However, engineering educators will also find it interesting as a means of creating a deeper learning experience for second and third year students.   Once they have been introduced to fluid flow and heat transfer topics in the normal way, students can use SigmaPipe to amplify and solidify the learning process.
