Pioneering Developers of Pipe Network Analysis Technology

KYPipe Model

KYPipe has been developing pipe network analysis software for over 40 years. The sophisticated analysis algorithms used to analyze Steady State, Surge, Gas and Steam systems have been perfected by our leading experts in this field. One common user interface (Pipe2006 / Pipe2008 / Pipe2010 / Pipe2012 / Pipe2014 / Pipe2016) links all these calculation models. Our Pipe2000 suite of hydraulic analysis software, water hammer or transient analysis software, and compressible gas analysis software is an international industry standard. Pipe2000 also includes unique capabilities to model facility's piping systems.  Civil Engineering professors Dr. Don J. Wood and Dr. Srini Lingireddy developed the Pipe2016 generation using input from users like you. We make every effort to incorporate user suggestions and requests. We welcome your continued input into the software development process. 

Technical support for our software is free. Drs. Wood and Lingireddy are also part of a team of experts who make up the Pipe2000 Technical Support team. Unlike many of our competitors, technical support for our users is provided at no additional cost. You may contact any one of a number of software developers and engineers with your questions about using the Pipe2000 suite of models. 

For your convenience, in addition to our U.S. based offices, we have representatives and distributors worldwide in India, ChinaKorea, Middle-East, Egypt, South America, Taiwan, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Europe.  Download a fully-functional demo program.

Classic and KYnetic User Interfaces

As of version Pipe2012, users have the option of two user interfaces. The original Classic Interface uses drop-down menus and tabs to provide navigation to the many features while the new KYnetic Interface uses icons for this purpose. Using icons provides users with an interface more like AutoCAD and ArcGIS and can provide quicker access (fewer clicks) to various features. In addition the KYnetic Interface offers many additional features for navigating and displaying data and results.
