When Pipe Stress Analysis Meets Waterhammer Hydraulics: New Waterhammer Guidelines for Engineers

I am sitting on an airplane at this moment somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean and I am excited. Something that has been in the works for 22 years will happen next Monday, July 16 in Prague, Czech Republic. That is where the ASME PVP 2018 Conference will happen and I get to make a presentation.

Last year I helped AECOM, an AFT customer and AFT Impulse user, develop a set of pragmatic internal design documents for their project on handling radioactive fluid transport. Two of these documents provided their engineers guidance on interpreting and applying transient cavitation predictions. 

We proposed these two documents to the ASME PVP Division and they liked them enough to allow us to publish two new papers at their conference. I will be presenting these papers on behalf of AECOM and AFT.

But why I am so excited about this?

AFT Hosts Workshop in Bogota, Colombia

This month we teamed up with our channel partner in Colombia, XSYSTEM , to host an AFT software workshop in the country's beautiful capital, Bogota. Attendees from seven different companies gathered for three days of intensive work to discuss topics such as sonic choking, surge forces, pump sizing, B31 code compliance, and more.  Workshops are a free and effective way for customers and prospects to get a hands-on experience with AFT software products and engage in technical discussion. We have more workshops in the queue for 2017--from Houston to India--with our next one in the Denver Tech Center on Thursday, April...

Where AFT Problem Solvers Tell Their Stories

Behind each of our case studies is a real person, a real company and a real problem that at one point needed solving. And that's exactly what we love about AFT users-- they solve problems. Our User Group Meetings throughout the year serve as a platform for our users to share the solutions they have found using our software. It is also a place for other AFT users to hear about the speakers' solutions and consider the innovative possibilities for their own projects.  This month, we held a User Group Meeting in the Denver Tech Center. Although not every User Group speaker...

Houston User Group

We believe it is our job to create community for our software users, which is why we host User Groups throughout the year! What is a user group? It’s a chance to network, eat good food, meet with us, and hear long-term AFT users describe how they solved complex engineering problems with our software. This latest user group, held in the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas, was our third of the year. We had two highly-decorated speakers present for us: Ryan Donahe from WorleyParsons and James M. Blanding, Ph.D., from DuPont Company. They both had stellar presentations on...
