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
Course Fee: US$650
Principal Engineer, Computational Simulation & Validation, graduated from Pennsylvania State University, State College, Pennsylvania, USA, with his BS, MS, and PhD in Mechanical Engineering. His areas of expertise include fluid dynamics, vibration, and thermal engineering. His responsibilities at HTRI focus on flow- induced vibration, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), visualization studies, and fired heaters. Prior to joining HTRI, he worked for 16 years as a researcher and deputy head of the Fluid Machinery Department of the Applied Research Laboratory (ARL) at Pennsylvania State University. A member of ASME and ISA, Farrell is a licensed Professional Engineer (PE) in Pennsylvania and Texas.
Senior Project Engineer, Engineering Services, graduated with a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, USA. While a co-op student at Gibbons Creek power plant, Berger performed performance reviews of pumps, pulverizers, and feedwater heaters. Following graduation, he progressed to project engineer and engineering manager roles for FTS International, leading engineering projects on various topics such as pulsation control, equipment redesign, software implementation, and vibration analysis. Since joining HTRI, his primary focus has been on proprietary contracts and the Edgeview software, as well as involvement in Technical Support and Training.
