This book deals with: Cryogenic fluid storage, Insulations and fluid transfer.
Gives a brief summary of background theory, and problems solved with Mathcad and Engineering Equation Solver (EES).
Topics: Design of inner and outer vessels, piping, Cryogenic insulations, vacuum insulated lines, Bayonets, valves, Two-phase flow and pressure drop, and cool down time.
Functions/ Procedures, written in Mathcad and EES, simplify the standard, most required calculations.
Should be useful to students, teachers, researchers and professionals.
3 ZIP files of ‘stand alone’ EES distributables is included. See below.
Instructions for the 3 ZIP files:
- This folder contains three RAR files, viz. Click here to download them all at once.
- Design of Dewar vessels, pipes, and thermal cond, integrals, thermal expansion (12 EXE files)
- Properties of Cryogenic fluids (4 EXE files)
- Two phase flow-flow regimes-pressure drop--cool down time of cryolines (4 EXE files)
- Unzip each of them into three separate folders.
- You will see in each folder a ‘Read me 1st’ file.
- Read the Read me 1st file before using the EXE files.
