Pipe Flow Expert 5.12
A powerful application that was created in order to provide a complete environment for designing simulations of fluid flow in a pipe network
One such modeling application is Pipe Flow Expert and it aims to offer a rather easy to use means of drawing various types of systems and performing the needed calculations. The interface is less attractive and more practical, with all the functions neatly organized, so everything is at hand.
To help users get started immediately, a library of example systems is available and it features many types of samples which can represent a starting point when creating a new design. There are many configurations available for pretty much any component that is part of the schema, starting with types of fluids, measurement systems labels and even color schemes.
When it comes to the fluids used in a project, there are several parameters that can be adjusted and these include the color for the fluid zone as well as the addition or removal of pipes. The fluid database is quite comprehensive and extensible, meaning you can modify the properties of an existing entry or add new fluid data, if necessary.
Insofar as the calculations are concerned, Pipe Flow Expert comes with several engines and customizable parameters. Thus, you can opt for Linear then Newton Convergence, Outflow Est Newton Convergence or for the Linear Aprox Only Convergence, set the tolerances for system calculations as well as the values for calculation iteration and warning.
To sum things up, it's safe to say that those who need to assess the flow of various fluids in a pipe network have at their disposal this handy software solution.
