Turbomachinery Core Fundamentals
May 4 - 6 or September 21 - 23, 2021 (online 9:30 am - 12:45 pm EDT)
Course Fee: $1200
Recommended for all engineers!! Recent mechanical and aero engineer graduates with a very strong background in fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, boundary layer theory, and turbomachinery courses may not need this intensive review. We recommend all engineers to use this intensive 'boot camp' review to revitalize their foundation of basics prior to taking any advanced courses for pumps, compressors or turbines, especially those taught by Concepts NREC staff.
Topics include the Essentials of Turbomachinery Design, Dimensional Analysis, Scaling, and Similitude; Principles of Structural Analysis; Boundary Layer Growth, Stability, and Range in Pumps and Compressors.
Flexible online delivery with live instructor lectures. Take this course and receive 15% discount when combined with registration for either of our advanced pump or compressor courses. Centrifugal Compressors: Improving Design for Better Performance (May 2021) or Centrifugal and Axial Pumps – Modern Design, Performance and Problem Solving (October 2021).
This course will be taught using the Introduction to Turbomachinery textbook by David Japikse and Nicholas C Baines. Students will also receive downloadable pdf course materials.
Dr. David Japikse
Dr. Japikse is the CEO and Founder of Concepts NREC, the world’s leading full-service turbomachinery design and development organization. Dr. Japikse received his B.S. in Engineering from Case Institute of Technology, his M.Sc. and Ph.D. Degrees in Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University and conducted post-doctoral research as a Fulbright Scholar/NSF Fellow at the Technische Hochschule in Aachen, Germany. He has received extensive recognition for his work in the design of pumps, compressors, and turbines, as well as the development of design tools.
A recipient of the 2010 Henry R. Worthington Medal for eminent achievement in pumping machinery, as well as other prestigious awards, he is also an elected member of the National Academy of Engineering and the Vermont Academy of Science and Engineering. Dr. Japikse has also authored/edited ten books and written/presented 300+ reports on turbomachinery design and development.
Other guest lecturers will also present on specific topics throughout the week.
