Getting Started: Building Your First Case in Xvib Webinar

April 11, 2023 | 9:30 PM CDT (UTC -05:00)

Session targeted for audience in Asia (April 12, 2023 at 8:00 AM – 9:00 AM India Standard Time, 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM China Standard Time, 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM Japan Standard Time).

If you're new to Xvib, or simply need a refresher, this webinar will help you. The webinar provides an overview of how Xvib works so that you can use it to analyze the vibration potential—both fluidelastic instability and vortex shedding amplitude—of a specific tube in the bundle of a shell-and-tube heat exchanger. In this webinar, we will describe Xvib input and output reports, demonstrate how to build an Xvib case including the export feature available in Xist, and discuss the differences between Xvib's finite element approach and Xist's vibration screening analysis. 

Registration deadline: April 07, 2023 (11:59 PM US Central Time)
