Features

Capabilities

  •  Experiment and simulate with a wide range of design and operational system components
  • Select ideal or real gases
  • Calculate pressure drop in pipes
  • Choose between isothermal, adiabatic or generalized heat transfer conditions
  • Vary your system lineup: open and close pipes and valves, turn compressors or fans on or off, set control valves to fail position
  • Design and analyze critical flow conditions including flare and relief systems
  • Conduct flow analysis with high velocities including sonic choking
  • Compile catalogs of your frequently used components and quickly select them from a drop down list
  • Assemble non-reacting mixtures and analyze dynamic mixtures resulting from intersecting flow streams
  • Model and analyze rotating piping systems such as those found in steam and gas turbines
  • Simulate the effects of elevation changes such as in tall structures, subsurface mines and overland pipelines
  • Import piping layouts from:
  • Import and export files in EPANET format
  • Excel integration supporting data import and export
