Artificial neural networks (ANNs) allow the solution of hard problems such as 

  • determining important parameters affecting crude oil fouling
  • analyzing operating data to troubleshoot heat exchangers
  • developing correlations through multivariate nonlinear regression of complex data

To evaluate a neural network model for heat transfer coefficients, we used a multilayer, feed-forward ANN with shellside vacuum condensation data from the Low Pressure Condensation Unit (LPCU) and the Multipurpose Condensation Unit (MCU). In the webinar, we describe this type of neural network and discuss the findings of this study. We also highlight challenges and identify possible future uses of neural networks at HTRI.

2020 Global Conference & Annual Meeting of Stockholders

September 2020

COVID-19 continues to impact everyone to some degree. The health and safety of you and our staff remains a top priority, prompting flexibility and changes in business operations.

Due to the pandemic, we have made the decision to bring our 2020 Global Conference (GC) to you through a combination of digital experiences. This format provides an opportunity for more of you–around the world–to attend our virtual event.

We look forward to seeing you face-to-face in September 2021 when our GC will be held at The Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Denver, Colorado, USA.

In the coming weeks, we’ll announce details regarding the schedule, registration options, and unique sponsorship opportunities to share in the power of the consortium!

October 2020

Our Horizons Symposium will provide a platform for industry, academia, and government research staff to network, discuss problems, and propose solutions for heat transfer in environmental technology applications. This two-day event will feature presentations and panel sessions on

  • WATER QUALITY: Desalination, wastewater treatment, zero liquid discharge systems, water fouling
  • AIR QUALITY: Carbon capture, sulfur reduction, indoor air quality, combustion systems NOx reduction, alternative refrigerants
  • RENEWABLE ENERGY: Geothermal, direct solar thermal, wind, ocean thermal, fuel cells

Horizons Symposiums, established and held in the early 1990s, were well received, with diverse topics that created a collaborative environment and generated new research and development opportunities. We look forward to the return of this symposium.

Please visit the Horizons Symposium webpage for information on transportation and symposium hotel accommodations.
