Fluid Flow and Line Sizing

  June 10, 2013  
CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
3-4 October 2013

Who Should Attend

Experienced and entry level process and mechanical engineers, as well as management and quality assurance personnel responsible for piping systems oversight, will find the course material useful. The course is for individuals involved in the design, construction and maintenance of piping and fittings. The material would be of value to the staff of facilities where the flow of fluids is essential. It will apply to many industries such as

  • Process
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Consumer Products
  • Power systems
  • Refinery systems

The information found in this course would be useful for many phases of plant operations including process piping development, start-up, operation, scale-up, troubleshooting and maintenance.


This course is intended to bridge the gap between fluid mechanics theory and the practical demands of industrial pipe sizing, systems design and troubleshooting. It provides systemic methods and shortcuts for analyzing flow and pressure drops in piping systems, beginning with relatively simple techniques for incompressible fluids, to the more complex analysis of two-phase flow in piping systems. The course includes:

  • Examination of the effect of fluid properties on fluid flow through piping systems
  • How to estimate or extrapolate these properties logically
  • An introduction to the pipe, tubing and fittings, and their impact on fluid flow and pressure drop
  • Special attention to control valves and safety pressure relief devices
  • Simple incompressible fluids, such as liquids; compressible fluids, such as gases and vapors, the more complex two-phase flow systems
  • Vacuum piping, its similarities and differences to gas flow; sizing and selection of vacuum equipment
  • Sizing and selection of fluid movers, such as pumps, fans, blowers and compressors; identifying and solving the various problems such as cavitation and surge
  • Shortcut methods which can increase efficiency in pipe sizing and troubleshooting

Organized by: CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement
Invited Speakers: Edward T. Luckiewicz; Adjunct Professor of Chemical Engineering, Coordinator of P.E. Review Program, Drexel University

Edward T. Luckiewicz is an Adjunct Professor Emeritus of Chemical Engineering and the coordinator of a P.E. Review Program at Drexel University. He has taught courses in engineering economics, process plant design, thermodynamics and separation techniques. Mr. Luckiewicz has over thirty years experience as a process engineer, project engineer and technical consultant in the design, engineering, construction, simulation and safety of process, pharmaceutical and power plants. He holds a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and an M.B.A. in Financial and Marketing Management from Drexel University.
