National Course and Webinars

 
NADCA offers a variety of options to address all of your educational needs.  Some of NADCA’s most popular education option are Webinars. 

Webinars are live web broadcasts presented weekly.  Attending a webinar is an excellent way to obtain vital information without the hassle or cost of travel.  Topics for webinars include, but are not limited to Safety, Results of Surveys and Studies, Various Processes, Economic Industry Data, NADCA R&D Research Results and New Technologies. A webinar presentation will not only address important information on the topic but also provide adequate time for questions, answers and discussion.

Below you will find a schedule of  National Courses and Upcoming Webinars.

    Gating and PQ2 - Calculations 04/02/2020 In this session uses the ideas introduced in the first two sessions to calculate total gate area requirements by first introducing and demonstrating how to calculate the optimum gate area by computing the maximum fill time. This leads directly to calculation of the gate area that maximizes the operating window. The standard atomization calculation to check gate dimensions is illustrated. The use of the NADCA web app to complete these calculations is also briefly illustrated. Add to Calendar

    Gating and PQ2 - Designing Runners, Overflows and Vents. Des 04/07/2020 This session addresses construction of the detailed geometry of runners and gates. Cavity layout is briefly discussed followed by main runner geometry construction, with consideration both of heat loss and fluid flow. Procedures to construct tangential and fan gates are introduced along with guidelines for constructing overflows and vents. Use of the NADCA web app to complete these calculations is illustrated. The session concludes with a very brief introduction to the importance of simulation for design evaluation and verification. Add to Calendar
