Course detail

Pipeline Engineering

FSI-LPOAcad. year: 2018/2019

Pipe engineering :
The course deals with pipes and pipe networks for the transport of liquids, gas, sludge, raw materials, energy, etc. Problems of steady and unsteady flow numerics, pumps, valves, in-situ measuring, and surge are also solved. Knowledge in the field of the design of water-, oil, gas-, heat-supply systems and sludge delivery piping is the goal of the training.
