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.
Ever since AFT Impulse 1.0 was released in 1996 (22 years ago), our engineering users have struggled mightily with what to do with the sometimes spurious predictions that result after transient cavitation has occurred. One of the most frequent technical support topics has been on this issue. We have even had customers send their engineers to our office for days at a time and hire us as consultants to help them decipher transient cavitation results so they can finish a design project.In part as a response to this, we put in significant and sometimes painful effort to implement a second transient cavitation model in 2013-2014 in AFT Impulse 5 (the Discrete Gas Cavity Model).
Is there anyway to get the complete papers? All I'm seeing are the Abstracts.
