What do NASA, DuPont, GDF Suez and the University of Arkansas know about AFT software that you may not? Watch it here!

  Introducing Applied Flow Technology Fluid transportation is an integral part of today's society. AFT software products have emerged as world leaders in helping engineers move fluids more safely and efficiently. There are countless examples of this. We have chosen four such stories to help engineers understand how our products can help them solve problems and improve their engineering designs and operations. We developed a video to tell this story. Watch it here! DuPont The first story talks about how AFT Fathom  helped DuPont solve a serious operational problem in three newly designed slurry systems. I co-authored a technical paper along...
