Concepts NREC Engineering Courses
CN is offering its world-class engineering courses focused on optimizing design and improving performance of axial and radial turbines, centrifugal pumps, turbochargers, and centrifugal compressors in the second half of 2012 starting in July at the company headquarters in White River Junction, VT:

  • July 16-18 - Axial Turbines: Improving Performance and Optimizing Design - This course will provide both design and application engineers with an understanding of axial turbine design and performance.
  • July 19-20 - Radial Turbines: Improving Performance and Optimizing Design - This course covers the characteristics, design, and performance of radial and mixed-flow turbines.
  • August 20-24 - Centrifugal Pumps: Advances in Design, Performance, and Problem Solving - Students will gain or expand their understanding of the hydrodynamic behavior and structural integrity of centrifugal pumps in this course, including the basic phenomena occurring in inlets, impellers, diffusers, volutes, and return channels as well as the entire development and design process from 1D to 3D viscous methods.
  • September 17-19 - Turbochargers: Advanced Integration and Designs for Internal Combustion Engines - This is the only course for industrial engineers providing a comprehensive presentation of the design principles of turbochargers, engine-turbocharger matching, and the performance of turbocharged engine systems.
  • October 29-November 2 - Centrifugal Compressors: Improving Design for Better Performance and Cost - Students will gain or expand their understanding of the aerodynamic behavior and structural integrity of centrifugal compressors, including the basic phenomena occurring in inlets, impellers, diffusers, volutes, and return channels, as well as the entire development and design process from 1D to 3D viscous methods.

Turbomachinery Design Software Workshops
CN also continues its popular series of design software workshops in the second half of 2012. These hands-on training sessions are being offered July 23-26, September 10-13, and November 12-15 at the company headquarters in White River Junction, VT. Current and prospective CN software users are invited to attend to obtain hands-on training in the latest versions of the Agile Engineering Design System® for axial and radial turbomachines. Workshops typically draw a diverse and active group of both experienced and new turbomachinery designers who want or need to be current in this versatile, powerful, state-of-the-art turbomachinery design and analysis software.

Concepts NREC Webinars
The company will also host a series of webinars starting in July:

  • July 12 - GasTurb 12 - What's New? - GasTurb™ software is known the world over as a powerful and flexible gas turbine cycle program that simulates the most common types of aircraft and power generation gas turbines. In this webinar, Dr. Joachim Kurzke, the software's developer and a specialist/consultant/teacher in gas turbine performance, will give a brief overview of what the GasTurb software can be used for, how it works, and the latest improvements in the 2012 version of the software. To register, visit
  • July 26 - Advancing Sustainability in Turboshaft Engine Testing with VAROC® Dynamometer Products - This webinar will review the fundamental notion of dynamometers, identify various dynamometer technologies available to test high-speed rotating equipment, and touch upon some application challenges encountered in designing turboshaft engine test cells. VAROC dynamometer products will also be showcased, describing how they provide a sustainable, highly stable, and accurate solution for turboshaft gas turbine engine testing.

The CN webinar series will continue throughout the year. For the latest schedule of topics, visit All CN webinars are recorded and available online at any time by visiting CN Webinars On-Demand at
