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.
Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have published two physics-based models for the selective laser melting (SLM) metals additive manufacturing process, so engineers can understand how it works at the powder and scales, and develop better parts with less trial and error.
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.
