AFT Application Topics
Methods for calculating losses for valves and fittings vary across all industries. One method is to convert the losses to an equivalent length of pipe. AFT Fathom has the option to use equivalent length. AFT Fathom also ensures compliance with NFPA 13, and activating the extended option equivalent length feature enables users to specify equivalent lengths that are used with the NFPA 13 standard.
