The Help pages of PulsimSuite provide ample information, and a tutorial, to learn the basics of how to use the software. To give you a “flying start”, and to teach engineers with less experience in pulsation studies the basics of the acoustic – and mechanical analysis of reciprocating systems, we provide dedicated, single-client trainings.
We offer the following options:
PulsimSuite Light introductory training:
Basic theory concepts of pulsations in reciprocating compressor/pump systems
Creating models and doing simulations and analyses of 3D pipe systems with PulsimSuite
PulsimSuite Full introductory training:
PulsimSuite Light training
Basic theory concepts of mechanical vibrations in reciprocating compressor/pump systems, and doing these simulations and analyses with PulsimSuite.
Dedicated in-depth training on pulsations and/or vibrations analysis, e.g.:
API Standards 674, 618, and 688
Details on acoustic response analysis with PulsimSuite: Simulation of pulsations in pipe systems with the time domain method of characteristics
Details on mechanical response analysis with PulsimSuite: How PulsimSuite generates the ANSYS finite-element model, combines that with the pulsations for the forced harmonic response calculations, and post-processes the results
Apart from the PulsimSuite trainings, the TNO PULSIM group of researchers and consultants also organizes a yearly open Workshop on Pulsation and Vibration Control (PVC). In this workshop the emphasis is more on the pulsation – and vibration phenomena in process installations, and less on the software. Moreover, other sources of pulsations and vibrations than reciprocating machines will be discussed, such as Flow Induced Pulsation/Vibration (FIP/FIV), unsteady flow in centrifugal machines, water hammer, and multi-phase flow.
