How does it work?

AFT Impulse incorporates a steady-state solver providing seamless transfer of initial conditions to the transient analysis. Steady-state solutions are determined using a modified Newton-Raphson matrix iteration. The traditional Method of Characteristics is used to solve the transient mass and momentum equations of pipe flow.
