Pipe2016:Surge Features & Expertise
Surge Protection Devices Siphon breakers, dynamic air valves, pressure relief valves, surge anticipation valves, surge bladder tanks & electronically-actuated surge anticipation valves are just a few of the unique devices available. more…
Animated Pipe Profiling Create animated or simple pipe profiles for pipelines or a path through a looped system. Specify the first and last nodes and the rest is done automatically.  The HGL envelope and results may be displayed.  more…
Connect Crisscross Pipes Connects disconnected pipes. If pipes cross but are not connected, this feature will add a junction node at the connection point (KYnetic only). more…
Interpolate Elevations Uses existing elevation data to update nodes with missing elevations. more…
Generate Change Pattern Generates a change pattern for a selected group of nodes in which each on/off combination is included (KYnetic only). more…
Snap Hydrants, Valves, and Meters Connects floating nodes to the nearest pipe. This is useful when adding hydrants, etc., from GIS data to an existing model. more…
Travel Time/Path Animation of the travel time from a selected end node to all reachable nodes in the system (KYnetic only). more…
Google Earth Import & Export Imports & exports model files to Google Earth. more…
Travel Distance Displays the travel distance from a selected node to all other nodes in the system (KYnetic only). more…
Google Maps & Google Elevations Retrieve Google Maps & Google Elevations data.
Presentation Generator Create detailed PowerPoint, Word & HTML reports within the KYnetic interface. Add maps, images, videos, tables and graphs for dynamic presentations. more…
Surge Pipe Break Analysis Create a pipe break scenario, then automatically run a Surge analysis of the pipe break. No need to set up and simulate the pipe break via the change table.
TranSurge
(Surge Add-On or Stand Alone)
Transient modeling of long transmission mains. more…
Animate Map Over Time Create an AVI or Bitmap animation. The animation may be used with contours and pipe emphasis enabled. more…
Operational Control Screen The Operational Control Screen is a unique and very useful tool for presentations and operational and design studies. There is no better tool for presenting the impact of changes on the operation of a distribution system. more…
Device & Element Libraries Users can create customized libraries for devices and elements. more…
Internet Elevation Retrieval & Background Maps Apply internet-based maps to both new and existing model backgrounds. Elevation data may be imported and applied to the nodes in the model. more…
CAD & GIS, Import & Export The DXF Exchange feature allows you to import and export piping data (lines and polylines) from AutoCAD to create a pipe system. The GIS Exchange feature imports and exports Pipe2016 model data (or other versions) to and from GIS Shape files. more…
Elements & Devices Node elements & devices include junctions, tanks, reservoirs, pumps, regulating valves, loss elements, and loss elements defined by manufacturer data from a library. more…
Backgrounds Images Display image files in the background including DXF, Shape, TIF and JPG. more…
Contouring & Emphasis Generate, display and print contour maps for a variety of node data and results (e.g., elevation, pressure). more…
Printing, Images & PDFs Export maps, graphs, tables and reports directly to a PDF, JPG or BMP file without loss of quality. more…
Pipe Schedules Select the Pipe Type from one of many Pipe Schedules and the pipe data fields are automatically filled, or create a customized schedule which may be reused in multiple models.
Fittings Loss Coefficients Enter the number of each type of fitting from the extensive drop-down list and the loss coefficient Ks will be automatically summed for any pipe section.
Automatic Junction Node Layout Automatically insert junction nodes at specified intervals in long pipelines.
Pipe Break Tool Highlights pipes and the on/off or active valves affected by the break.
Plot Pump Curves Generates a plot of pump curves using head/flow data.
Built in Valve Characteristics A number of built-in standard valves characteristics are provided — gate, globe, butterfly and many more valves are included.
