Annotation -
The subject is focused on the used gas industry technologies. Here, students are introduced to the origin, production and processing of natural gas so that it can be transported over long distances, or stored in underground gas storages. Students will master the engineering basics of the function of natural gas transmission and distribution pipelines, state behavior and transport properties of natural gas, gas flow through pipelines. Pressure regulation, Joule-Thomson phenomenon, gas preheating before throttling. Linking the function of the transport and distribution system. Furthermore, methods of construction and rehabilitation of gas pipelines and legislative or safety aspects in gas transport and distribution.
