Welcome to the Applied Flow Technology Blog.
Everyone loves to celebrate. Here at AFT, we are celebrating the release of AFT Fathom 10 . One of the great things about AFT Fathom 10 is that the new and improved Pump Properties window makes specifying pumps faster and easier than ever. This blog will provide an overview of the features that have been added or changed within the Pump Prope...
In AFT Fathom and AFT Impulse , it is possible to model a submerged pump where a short and possibly frictionless suction pipe for the pump’s inlet does not need to be modeled. When modeling a submerged pump, there are two options available for specifying the system inlet boundary condition at the pump suction. As shown in Figure 1 below, the Submerged Pump’s Suction Pressure can either be specified as “Head (HGL)” or “Pressure”. Modeling a submerged pump is not the only time where the “Head (HGL)” or “Pressure” choices will arise. If an Exit Valve (i.e., a valve that...
