Piping system design and optimization. (Software Exchange).

Capability: The premium version of the software application Flow of Fluids allows engineers to design, optimize, and troubleshoot small piping systems. The application provides a picture of the user's piping system by integrating multiple system design tasks into one program. It performs the calculations needed to size individual pipelines, select and evaluate pumps and control valves, size flowmeters and balancing orifices, and perform a full hydraulic network analysis of the piping system. The calculated results can be viewed within the program, sent to a Windows-supported printer or plotter, or e-mailed as a PDF file from within the program.
