Complimentary Tutorials of Basics Webinars

Register today to attend the complimentary ASME IGTI Tutorial of Basics webinars. Started at the 2012 Turbo Expo, in Copenhagen Denmark, each IGTI technical committee is asked to offer at least one tutorial on a fundament topic of their specific discipline. These tutorials are presented at a level where a non-expert could learn about fundamentals of a technology area. Tutorial of Basics sessions are normally held during the Turbo Expo conference, however, this year they will be as webinars after the TE20 virtual event.

This is a sample of the tutorials of basics webinars:
This R&D Trends in Wind Energy tutorial video recording, delivered by Alessandro Bianchini (University of Florence), represents an abbreviated version of the full tutorials presented annually at the ASME Turbo Expo Conference.
