Fluid Flow Fundamentals training course provided by Velocis Solutions aims to deliver the most fundamental and applied knowledge about fluid transport and its significant contributors. Here in this course, you will go through the following topics:

  • Fluid Mechanics and Transportation

  • Pump operation principles & selection

  • Centrifugal & Positive Displacement Pumps

  • Sizing of Pressure Changers (Pipe/Pipeline, Pump and Compressor)

  • Performance Curve & capacity control of Pressure Changers (Pump and Compressor)

What you like to have an introductory information about fluid flow fundamentals? Here it is:

Although liquids particularly can be transported by operators carrying buckets, the usual mode of transport of fluids is through pipelines with pumps, compressors and etc. The continuous transport of a liquid requires a pump, and the continuous transport of a gas or vapor requires compressor. These devices are described by the general term fluid changers and basic characteristics of these fluid flow equipments are introduced in this course.

The performance of pumps and compressors is dictated by their characteristic curves and for pumps, the net positive suction head curve. Pipes and their associated fittings that are used to transport fluid through a chemical plant are usually made of metal. Pipes are sized using a nominal diameter and a schedule number. The higher the schedule number, the thicker the pipe walls, making pipes with a higher schedule number more suitable for higher-pressure operations.

Pumps are used to transport liquids, and pumps can be damaged by the presence of vapor. Positive-displacement pumps are often called constant-volume pumps because a fixed amount of liquid is taken into a chamber at a low pressure and pushed out of the chamber at a high pressure. The chamber has a fixed volume, hence the name. An example of a positive-displacement pump is a reciprocating pump

Compressor is the device that increase the pressure of gases. In a centrifugal, the impeller may spin at tens of thousands of revolutions per minute. If liquid droplets or solid particles are present in the gas, they hit the impeller blades at such high relative velocity that the impeller blades will erode rapidly and may cause bearings to become damaged, leading to mechanical failure. The compressor casing also may crack. Therefore, it is important to ensure that the gas in a centrifugal compressor does not contain solids and liquids. Positive-displacement compressors typically handle lower flowrates but can produce higher pressures compared to centrifugal compressors. Efficiencies for both types of compressor tend to be high.

Students: 1106, Price: $74.99

Students: 1106, Price:  Paid

This course serves as a springboard into Engineering Thermodynamics for new students or as a refresher for students already familiar with some of the concepts and are looking for somewhere to brush up the fundamentals.

The course covers a broad spectrum of common topics that are applicable to a wide variety of situations in numerous engineering sectors;

  • Hydrostatic pressure theory

  • Buoyancy and Archimedes Principle

  • Fluid flow (Reynolds number, types of flow & viscous fluid flow)

  • Bernoulli's Equation

  • Lift and Drag

  • Combustion

  • Thermo power cycles (including the Carnot cycle, Otto cycle & Diesel cycle)

All of these topics are fascinating and are around the A-level to University level in terms of technical content... but don't worry! We cover these topics in a logical order and start off simple so that we do not lose you along the way. Most videos follow the format of a discussion of the theory and then we go through a worked example. We then recommend that students have a go at the practice questions that accompany most videos so that you can put your skills to the test. There are full worked solutions so you are able to check how you perform. 

We at Learn-Ed believe that the format of "Theory - Worked example - Have a go for your self" is one of the best methods of learning - particularly the "Have a go for yourself" element.

We also try to describe various applications that each theory has to help give context as to why its interesting to learn about.

We hope to see you in our lessons!

Note: This course does not replace a formal qualification. Formal qualifications in engineering can be obtained through colleges or universities and these may be of interest to you if you enjoyed this course.

This is the basic course on the chapter - Equilibrium.

The contents of this course are:

1) Definition of Equilibrium - In classical mechanics, a particle is in mechanical equilibrium if the net force on that particle is zero.

2) Free Body Diagram - Free-body diagrams are diagrams used to show the relative magnitude and direction of all forces acting upon an object in a given situation.

3) Lami's Theorem - When three forces acting at a point are in equilibrium, then each force is proportional to the sine of the angle between the other two forces.

4) Conditions of Equilibrium - ∑Fx=0, ∑Fy=0, translational equilibrium, ∑M=0, rotational equilibrium. The above three equations should be satisfied for 2D Equilibrium of the body. So in total there are three conditions of equilibrium for two dimensional cases and six conditions of equilibrium for three dimensional cases.

5) Problem on Equilibrium

6) Types of supports - i) Simple support (sliding support and roller support), ii) Hinge support or pin support, iii) Fixed support

7) Types of beams - i) Simply supported beam, ii) Cantilever beam, iii) Fixed beam, iv) Continuous beam, v) Overhanging beam

8) Types of loading - i) Concentrated load or Point load, ii) Uniformly Distributed Load (U. D. L.) or Rectangular Loading, iii) Uniformly Varying Load (U. V. L.) or Triangular Loading.

The subject fluid mechanics describes all the physical laws that govern the flow of fluids and gases, and ultimately help us to recognize the causes and effects of fluid flow through the determination of characteristic parameters like pressure field, velocity field in a fluid flow, along with the different properties of the fluid like density, viscosity and mainly an inter-relation between these two, and in different situations not only in the flow of fluid, but also in cases when the fluid is addressed. This is basically the subject with mechanics deals. Now the importance of the subject I think is apparent. This is because probably you cannot find out single phenomena in the universe which is devoid of fluid as the working medium or substance or flow of fluid. For example, even our basic existence or survival depends upon breathing in and out, the circulation of the blood, this all depend on the principle of fluid flow .A turbo machine includes the design of hydraulic turbines, steam turbines, compressor and pump. Basic thermal analysis of steam turbines is included in this course. The basics of fluid mechanics are applied to analyze the hydraulic turbine and pump. Design and analysis of hydraulic turbines and centrifugal pump is studied in detail. The elementary study of centrifugal compressors and axial flow compressors is part of this course.

At the same time, it includes bonus sections for all those curious creatures out there always trying to join threads and connections to their understanding of the world. We are already getting some positive feedback on the course really tickling some funny bones and is definitely not like the conventional courses one comes across.

Objectives:

· To present the basic principles and equations of fluid mechanics.

· To develop an intuitive understanding of fluid mechanics by emphasizing on physics and reinforcing that understanding through engaging graphics and animations.

· To Help you in preparation for entrance exams (like GATE, GRE, IES etc.) as well as college exams.
