4 Easy Steps to Complete a PDHengineer webinar

In this live, interactive webinar, participants will learn or freshen up on fundamental concepts of thermodynamics, as well as useful applications of those concepts in industrial, commercial, and residential environments. This webinar is ideal, then, for engineers, technicians, and facilities managers who are not intimately familiar with, or up to date on, thermodynamics principles and practices.

With the aid of several case studies and a discussion-based format, participants in the webinar will analyze and solve various types of thermodynamic problems. For example, you will learn how thermal energy converts to electricity through steam turbines and electric generators, and you will learn how to analyze a psychrometric chart to determine dew points, humidity ratios, and the amounts of heat, sensible heat, and latent heat in relation to other thermophysical properties. Many equations, laws, graphs, charts, tables, and diagrams related to thermodynamics concepts will be made available to you as you learn the material.
