Description

This workshop is devoted to the shell-and-tube exchanger geometries handled only by Xist. In the sessions, we focus on the extensive options available in Xist and how you can use these methods effectively to solve several example problems. You will leave the class knowing how to take full advantage of the features this robust tool offers.

Key Topics

  • 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 vibration analysis

Suggested Participants

Designers of shell-and-tube heat exchangers and process engineers who evaluate their performance

Course Fee: US$450
