Pump System Analysis Design Manual - Free Download


<<The purpose of this book is to describe how pressure can be determined anywhere within a pump system. The inlet and outlet of a pump are two locations where pressure is of special interest. The difference in pressure head (the term pressure head refers to the energy associated with pressure) between these two points is known as the Total Head. A system equation will be developed based on fundamental principles from which the Total Head of the pump can be calculated, as well as the pressure head anywhere within the system. These principles can be applied to very complex systems.>>

SAIT Process Piping Education
Spirax Sarco Learning Centre

Spirax Sarco

<<This programme consists of a series of short modules which are assembled in a number of blocks. The entire programme is designed to cover all aspects of the steam and condensate loop. It is aimed at engineers who have a requirement to design and maintain steam and condensate systems.>>

Correspondence Course on Piping Technology

Gramya Research Analysis Institute

<<Need for the course on Piping Technology in form of distance learning i.e. through correspondence has been long felt by the prospective and existing piping professionals. We have been actively involved in training engineers related to Piping, Process Equipments, Material Handling, Materials Technology, etc. since last 18 years. This correspondence course will initiate you to prepare and develop plot plans & equipment layouts so that you can attempt to prepare the piping layouts, their sizing, selection of components, design analysis and finally to understand the need of documents for piping erections, assembly, testing and inspections.>>

ASME Professional Development Short Course Inventory

Lots of Courses


Structural Integrity Associates, Inc.

<<The ASME Code course teaches plant engineers the ASME Code criteria and rules for design and evaluation of plant components. This knowledge is invaluable for in-house design, replacement, repair, or re-evaluation decisions for plant components. This course provides engineers with the fundamental, practical, and design knowledge required for ASME Code Section III and Section XI application to pressure vessels and piping. Attendees gain a basic understanding of the Code and its application to practical, cost-effective designs (as illustrated by practical examples).>>

Engineering Case Studies

A collection of information on engineering cases from Carleton University

<<This is a collection of information on engineering cases. These are accounts of real engineering projects that are written for use in engineering education. The accounts are not highly technical, and are quite readable by those with the appropriate interest.>>

Process Teaching Aids for Chemical Engineering Students

Process Engineering Tools

<<Most of the process engineering tools provided here are NOT suitable for real-life plant operation and/or design purposes. They are meant as a teaching aid for chemical engineering students and should not be used without applying careful and sound engineering judgement.>>
