Almost every piping system has valves, and an accurate solution requires accurate valve losses. For incompressible systems, this is relatively straightforward. What happens when we introduce the complexities of compressible flow?
AFT Fathom XTS and AFT Impulse have long been able to start events like pump trips or valve closures when a certain condition is met in the system. For example, a valve can close when a tank is full, or a pump can trip when the flow is too low. However, complex systems often have multiple conditions that can cause an event. The pump may trip when the flow is too low OR the suction pressure is too low. The valve may only close when two tanks are full. AFT Fathom version 10 and AFT Impulse version 7 enhance the transient capabilities to allow the definition of these complex Multi-Condition Events.
Establishing and maintaining an electrical grid is a monumental task spanning many professions and disciplines. Fluid dynamics plays an important role in nearly any method of power generation. Between ensuring safety, reliable production of power, and minimizing operational costs, there are countless ways that modeling fluid flow can offer improvements.
AFT Applications have the potential to generate overwhelming amounts of output information. The extensive output customization and graphing capabilities within our products are excellent when building a model and quickly reviewing its behavior. However, it can be difficult to get exactly the data you want in an easy to manipulate form for additional calculations or polished client reports.
To help address this, AFT Fathom 10 is introducing the powerful new ability to export user-selected data directly to Microsoft Excel. Get only the data you need, exactly where it is needed.
