|Monday, November 19||09:00 - 17:00||Vibration Analysis Workshop|

|Wednesday, November 21||09:00 - 17:00||Heat Exchanger Fouling Short Course|
Even if your work is limited to shell-and-tube heat exchangers, there’s much to be learned! This workshop is devoted to the geometries handled only by Xist.
The day focuses on the extensive options available in Xist and how you can use these methods effectively to solve several example problems. You’ll leave the class knowing how to take full advantage of the features this robust tool offers.
Overview of Xist capabilities and applications • Geometry input for shell-and-tube heat exchangers • Process specifications for rating,simulation, and design • Guidelines for specifying fluid properties • Introduction to HTRI analysis methods
Designers of shell-and-tube heat exchangers and process engineers who evaluate their performance
A must for anyone who evaluates the vibration potential of shell-and-tube heat exchangers! In this course, you learn about vibration mechanisms in shell-and-tube heat exchangers and Xist methods to analyze vibration severity. Most importantly, you discover corrective measures to mitigate damage.
Introduction to vibration phenomena • Flow-induced vibration (fluidelastic instability, vortex shedding, turbulent buffeting, acoustic vibration) • Design options to mitigate vibration • Field fixes • Xist Vibration Report • Example application and case studies
Design and plant engineers responsible for the mechanical condition of shell-and-tube heat exchangers
Design decisions can have a costly impact on heat exchanger operation. Learn by reviewing several real cases in which unit designs had critical commercial consequences for operators/owners. In some cases, the units did not work in service; in others, the designs were revamped before the units began operation.
Each case study is introduced as a problem; participants work individually or in groups to determine the cause and develop solutions. Prior to each case, the instructor reviews related HTRI methods.
Troubleshooting process • Mechanical defects • Two-phase flow • Vibration • Maldistribution • Venting and draining
Thermal design engineers and heat exchanger experts
Industry experience indicates that using traditional methods in heat exchanger design for fouling service may result in excessive heat transfer area in some applications and promote fouling in others. This course reviews issues with fouling and several methods used in designing heat exchangers for fouling service.
Mechanisms, mitigation, and diagnosis of crude oil fouling • Uncertainty and design margins, including a review of open literature methods • Overview of cooling water fouling, with discussion of the HTRI predictive model for cooling water fouling • Risk-based design method • No-foul design method
Engineers who specify, rate, and/or analyze heat exchangers in fouling service
Ian J. Gibbard holds a BSc in Chemical Engineering from Loughborough University of Technology. He has more than 20 years of experience in the design, manufacture, operation, and troubleshooting of process and power plant heat exchangers. He has served as chairman of the HTRI Communications Committee in the United Kingdom. In 2002 he set up his own company, Progressive Thermal Engineering, providing consultancy and training services to a worldwide client base. He contributes to the development and delivery of HTRI training services under contract. Gibbard has delivered training courses in over 25 countries, drawing on his experience as both a user of the software and a training facilitator.
Hans U. Zettler, Director of Sales, EMEA, joined HTRI while completing his PhD in Chemical Engineering at the University of Surrey, UK. His doctoral work focused on fouling and design of compact heat exchangers. He also possesses a mechanical engineering degree (Dipl.-Ing.) from the Technical University Karlsruhe, Germany. Zettler completed multiple internships in industry throughout Europe while pursuing his education. He is a member of the German Engineering Society (VDI), a member of the VDI-GVC Working Party on Heat and Mass Transfer, an associate member of the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE), and a committee member of the Heat Transfer Society (HTS) in the UK.

Event Registration Policies
An “event” is any series of HTRI sessions including training, conferences, or other official sessions occurring on one or more consecutive business days. These policies are subject to change without notice.
The registration deadline for all HTRI events is five business days prior to the event. Specific deadlines for each event are listed on the HTRI website.*
We regret that we are unable to accommodate onsite registration for events. All registrations must be made at least five days prior to the date of the event. Registrants already attending an event and wishing to attend another session during the same event may register onsite if space is available.*
Early Registration Discount
Registrants are eligible for a discounted fee on certain sessions when registering at least 60 calendar days prior to the event AND paying by credit card. Early registration discounts are not available for wire transfers or other forms of payment. Availability of discounts is noted on the HTRI website.
HTRI Cancellation or Postponement
If HTRI cancels or postpones an event for any reason, registrants may choose one of the following options:
Registrant Cancellation/Late Cancellation/No Show
Registrants who cancel their registration in writing at least 30 days prior to an event are eligible for a full refund of the registration fee or may apply their registration fee to another HTRI session or event occurring within 12 months of the date of the original event.
If written notice of cancellation is received less than 30 calendar days but more than five business days prior to the event, a US$50 cancellation fee will be deducted from any requested refund. Alternatively, you may choose to apply your fee to another HTRI event occurring within 12 months of the date of the original event with no penalty.
Registrants who cancel their registration in writing less than five business days prior to an event or who are not present on the day of the event are not eligible for a refund. However, if another session is occurring at the same event, the registrant may attend that event instead, provided that space is still available.
Registrants who fail to show up without providing written notice prior to the start time of the event are not eligible for a refund or to receive credit toward a different session or event.
Late Arrivals/Early Departures
Registrants may arrive late to an event, though you may not be immediately seated if doing so would unduly disrupt the event in progress. Partial refunds will not be granted for registrants who do not attend an entire session or event.
Registrants may transfer their registration to another person at any time up to five business days prior to the event. After that, we regretfully are unable to accommodate substitutions unless the transfer is to a person already attending a different session at the same event.*
*This policy is necessary to provide us with sufficient time to comply with U.S. Federal export law. HTRI is required to compare registrant names against several lists of sanctioned countries and persons.
