EL510 - Two Phase Flow and Heat Transfer

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Participants in this online, instructor-supported course will gain a phenomenological understanding of two-phase flow and heat transfer in engineering processes and components, as well as an ability to compute flow and heat transfer for common situations. It approaches two-phase flow and heat transfer in a practical, qualitative way rather than as a graduate level treatment with complex calculations and esoteric situations. Basic quantitative calculations, including making sense of the myriad correlations that are given in texts and papers, will also be covered.

You Will Learn To
- Explain the fundamentals of boiling
- Explain the process of boiling on external and internal surfaces
- Describe Two-phase flow patterns and pressure loss
- Explain Two-phase flow with heat transfer
- Explain Critical heat flux and burnout
- Identify flow instability in two-phase systems
- Describe cavitation
- Identify measurements in two-phase flows

Presenters / Authors / Faculty

Dyer Harris, Ph.D., P.E., is currently a Senior Consulting Engineer with The Warren Group and manager of the Wilmington office. He has over thirty years of experience in industrial thermal systems analysis, heat exchangers, process equipment, two-phase flow, and HVAC. As a research engineer for DuPont at the Savannah River Site (SRS), Dr. Harris specialized in heat transfer at high thermal flux in reactors and heat transfer related to nuclear waste processing. As a consulting engineer he analyzes, designs and troubleshoots heat treatment processes for various industries. Dr. Harris has been an adjunct instructor in thermodynamics and heat transfer for the University of South Carolina-Aiken, Villanova University, and currently, at the University of Delaware.
