Beyond the Basics: Effective Use of the Property Generator in Xchanger Suite Webinar

May 20, 2021 | 9:00 AM CDT (UTC -05:00)

The selection of a suitable thermodynamic model to generate accurate fluid properties in Xchanger Suite® can be a challenge for novice and experienced users alike, yet the importance of this decision cannot be overstated. Selection of an appropriate thermodynamic model is crucial to the generation of valid physical properties, which are absolutely necessary for accurate heat transfer and pressure drop prediction. This webinar reviews the general concepts that underpin the methods employed by most property generation packages and provides guidance on appropriate model selection for a given fluid composition. 

Registration deadline: May 18, 2021 (11:59 PM CDT)

Facilitated by Patrick Redmill
