  1. Selected Pressure Relief Systems Heuristics

    Webinar

    In this webinar, you learn heuristics for a few common overpressure scenarios including blocked pump outlet, low-pressure vent piping losses, fire relief, control valve failure, gas blow-by, and more. Estimating relief loads for pressure relieving systems is usually straight-forward with clear...

  2. Assessing Sustainability: Metrics and Methods

    Webinar

    This presentation is about making an attempt to apply sustainability principles to engineering processes and products. Sustainability has been accepted as an organizing principle in most engineering disciplines. Industry and academia have also embraced the idea. Yet it is generally felt that not...

  3. Facts, Paths & Targets (Hazards, Excursions and Risk): What Every New Graduate Should Know about Process Safety

    Webinar

    Every chemical engineering graduate practices process safety. Consequently, process safety should receive more emphasis than it currently does in the curriculum. This webinar focuses on the minimum required for professional practice upon graduation. Topics include facts about hazards that student...

  4. Pressure Swing Adsorption: A Ubiquitous Gas Separation Technology

    Webinar

    This webinar provides an overview of the ubiquitous pressure swing adsorption (PSA) technology. Adsorption is classified as a unit operation in chemical engineering that exploits the ability of a solid surface to concentrate species selectively from a fluid phase onto its surface. Adsorption...

  5. Transport Phenomena: Heat Transfer

    Webinar

    This webinar provides an overview of the basic concepts of Heat Transfer illustrating the key topics with practical examples in the areas of energy conservation, conduction, convection and radiation. After an overview of the basic concepts including the mechanisms of heat transfer and the equations...

  6. Process Integration & Optimization Using Dynamic Systems Models

    Webinar

    The webinar is from modeling and optimization experts at Idaho National Laboratory, Humberto Garcia and Richard Boardman. Their work has focused on topics ranging from biofuels to hybrid nuclear energy systems. It is an overview of process integration and optimization using dynamic systems models.

  7. New Interface Developments with the AMPL Modeling Language & System

    Webinar

    A modeling language provides a powerful yet convenient interface to number-crunching "solvers" of large-scale optimization problems. But what is the interface to the modeling language? It turns out that several kinds of interfaces are needed for different purposes, ranging from interactive...

  8. Stochastic Optimal Control for Gas Networks

    Webinar

    We present a stochastic optimal control model to optimize gas network inventories in the face of system uncertainties. The model captures detailed network dynamics and operational constraints and uses a weighted risk-mean objective. We perform a degrees-of-freedom analysis to assess operational...

  9. Acuity: Software Solution for Improving Process Risk Management

    Webinar

    The webinar provides attendees with information regarding Acuity, the new cloud-based risk management software from AcuTech. Acuity will enable organizations to better implement, audit, measure and improve their safety and security management systems. The session discusses and provides a...

  10. Humor That Works

    Webinar

    Engineers strive for efficiency and effectiveness. Sadly, humans aren’t always either one. Luckily we have a tool to help us get the most out of ourselves and our co-workers. Humor has been shown to improve communication, build relationships, enhance problem-solving, increase productivity, and...
