    Smile New Member - Sporlan Engineer

    Greetings folks. I'm an R&D engineer at Sporlan in Washington, mo. Right now I'm basically the R&D engineer at Sporlan, but hopefully that will be changing in the near future.

    I'm new to the HVAC industry, but I have a MS in thermo fluids and experience in advanced design at Boeing. I have a lot to learn about HVAC and hopefully I can learn a few things here and offer some knowledge at the same time.

    Welcome.

    I love reading posts by engineers.

    Well, until the words get all swimmy and start to walk around on the screen all by themselves.

    Then, I blink a couple times, read it again and I can usually tell what language it is written in.

    Well howdy, what kind of CFD software do you design with? I'm sure we can learn a lot from you.
    The picture in my avatar is of the Houston Ship Channel and was taken from my backyard. I like to sit outside and slap mosquitos while watching countless supertankers, barges and cargo ships of every shape and size carry all sorts of deadly toxins to and fro. It's really beautiful at times.....just don't eat the three eyed fish....

    Yea, I know what you mean. You ever hear an EE explain Power Factor?

    I'm in the middle of learning CFDesign, which is now called Autodesk Simulation CFD or something. I dabbled in Pro/Mechanica several years ago, but I haven't committed a lot of time to CFD since then.


    And I have a hard time listening to electrical engineers explain anything!! I keep tellin them that i/j is not a number, but they don't believe me.

    Enquiring minds want to know if Fugacity thinks calculating "fugacity" of refrigerant gases will help with valve design...

    thermodynamics Also called: escaping tendency, fa property of a gas, related to its partial pressure, that expresses its tendency to escape or expand, given by d(logef) = dμ/RT, where μ is the chemical potential, R the gas constant, and T the thermodynamic temperature
