About the course
~3 hrs of videos
This course covers the fundamentals of the Slurry Module of the FluidFlow software. By means of video lectures, tutorials and case discussions you will become confident with using the analysis techniques for slurries in different applications. Topics include the calculation settings and slurry medium properties, flow regimes, particle size distribution, design procedures, and many real-life case discussions. A large set of video tutorials provide a clear learning curve and allow you to get fully up to speed on working with the software.
After this course you will be confident in using the FluidFlow Slurry Module and understand the important calculation and gas properties settings.
The course allows you to learn at your own pace and is fully provided online. You receive 1-year unlimited access to all modules, which allows you to perform them over again when you need to refresh knowledge for your work projects.
