Dynamic Analysis & Scripting

Perform time-based or what-if analysis.

Scripting offers the ability to develop real-time analysis of plant and systems from within the FluidFlow interface. The powerful dynamic simulation capabilities ensure you develop a thorough understanding of how your system operates in real-world scenarios. Engineers are able to set scenarios via Pascal or Basic in a similar way to how a macro works in Excel. Scripting removes the guesswork from your what-if analysis.

FluidFlow is used by engineers to:
  •  Study how any flow system behaves at start up/shut down as operating conditions change.
  • Evaluate variable speed pump control.
  • Investigate tank fill/drain times.
  • Develop system control philosophies.
  • Consider plant depressurisation.
  • Establish control valve performance for different system control philosophies.
  • Review plant pressure conditions as demand profiles vary.
  • Optimize system operating performance.
  • Analyze system pressure conditions arising from component failure.
  • Read-in design operating conditions from Excel and integrate with FluidFlow.
  • Export table of calculated results to Excel for wide range of design conditions.
  • Plot graphs within FluidFlow and Excel.
  • Optimization of system performance through automation of pumps/fans.
  • Estimate system pipe volumes.
  • Determine pipes operating above/below a desired flow velocity.
