Pipe2016: Gas (Gas Analysis)

Pipe2016: Demo

KYPipe's advanced Windows graphical environment, Pipe2016, has been adapted to our entire suite of engines: analyzing gas (Pipe2016: Gas), steam (Pipe2016: Steam), fire sprinkler systems (Pipe2016: GoFlow), and transient flow (Pipe2016: Surge).

User technical support for our software is provided directly by our team of experts, which assures the highest possible level of support and fosters a very close relationship between our development team and our users.  Previous KYPipe users will recognize that many of the new features and capabilities of Pipe2000 were based on their suggestions and comments.


Pipe2016: Gas

Pipe2016: Gas analyzes steady, one-dimensional, isothermal flow for ideal and  non-ideal variable density gases.

Gas includes the ability to account for temperature variations, ideal natural gas distribution and landfill gas collection.  It is also useful for determining the effects of demand or load changes. 

Gas can accommodate large networks, looped systems, multiple supply and load points.  Several scenarios may be set up in a single model, such as load changes, and open/closed valves.



Darcy Weisbach equations and Ideal Gas law are used to describe pressure-temperature density relationships in Pipe2016: Gas.  Non-Ideal Gas and Constant Density Gas analyses are also available.  Mass flow calculation is used to calculate velocity.
