You may now be a know-it-all in the pump industry, thanks to the Hydraulic Institute's e-learning program, "Centrifugal pumps: Fundamentals, Design and Applications." The computer-based training course, developed in direct response to an HI survey, covers both centrifugal and vertical pump technology, in addition to the basics of hydraulics needed for pump application. Users may buy the program on CD-ROM at www.pumps.org or in online format at www.pumplearning.org.
A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
