Description

The industrial revolution may have been fired by coal, but it was powered by steam. Humans have been harnessing the power of steam for thousands of years, but it is only in the past 200 years that we have started to rely on it for countless engineering applications. This course looks at the origins of steam, its theory (thermodynamics), generation and applications.

You will learn:
– Why we use steam instead of other energy fluids.
– The history of steam in engineering.
– Heat fundamentals (thermodynamics, latent heat, sensible heat etc.).
– Heat transfer (conduction, convection and radiation etc.).
– Combustion theory (efficiency, heat values etc.).
– Steam properties (wet, dry, saturated, enthalpy etc.).
– Boilers (designs, advantages, disadvantages etc.).
– And a lot more!

Irrespective of your engineering background, learning about steam will greatly benefit your career. Steam systems are used at almost every industrial facility on the planet, so you can apply 100% of what you have learnt to the real world.

This course is ideal if you work in the chemical engineering, power engineering, oil and gas, or industrial engineering industries.

The instructor is an ex-marine engineer with 17 years experience…you’re in good hands!

Interactive 3D models have been used to show you various boiler designs in great detail.

2D images have been used to clarify complicated topics.

Quiz questions have been added so you can test your knowledge!

The course includes links to Apps that help you consolidate what you have learnt.
