FloCAD

Fluid Flow Analysis and Pipe Simulation

FloCAD® is a Thermal Desktop® software module that enables a user to develop fully integrated thermohydraulic models for fluid flow and heat transfer. With FloCAD, the mechanics of building fluid flow models is very similar to that of building thermal models, with many of the commands applicable to both types of models. FloCAD models can be free-form, sketchpad style flow network modeling for abstraction and simplification, or they can be geometry-based by including geometric objects such as pipes and vessels. Convection heat transfer can be added between fluid networks and thermal objects for complete pipe flow simulation or the modeling of natural convection.

This webinar describes flat-front modeling, including where it is useful and how it works. A flat-front assumption is a specialized two-phase flow method that is particularly useful in the priming (filling or re-filling with liquid) of gas-filled or evacuated lines. It also finds use in simulating the gas purging of liquid-filled lines, and in modeling vertical large-diameter piping.

Prerequisites: It is helpful to have a background in two-phase flow, and to have some previous experience with FloCAD Pipes.
