BOSfluids provides extensive support for modeling a great variety of boundary conditions, both related to flow conditions and to the mechanical behavior of a piping system. The new 7.1 release makes BOSfluids even more versatile by adding three new boundary condition types: Flow Continuation, Periodic Pressure and Periodic Flow Rate. The Flow Continuation boundary condition can be used to introduce a geometrical discontinuity in the structural piping model without introducing a similar discontinuity in the flow model. This makes it possible, for instance, to specify additional stiffness parameters at nozzles without having to create a separate flow model.
The Periodic Pressure and Periodic Flow boundary conditions can be used to impose arbitrary periodic flow boundary conditions. They enable you to specify a single period as a piece-wise linear function of time. This period will be repeated throughout a transient or quasi steady state analysis. You can optionally specify a phase shift and an effective frequency with which you can compress or stretch the base period. The periodic boundary condition types can be used, among others, to model reciprocating and rotating equipment, including pumps.
User-Day July 5th
July 5th, Dynaflow will organize an online launch event for the upcoming releases of BOSpulse, BOSfluids and ISOtracer. During this event our users and potential users can learn about the new features and how to use them in next projects. The event will also offer users the opportunity to interact with our software developers and other users. To register for the event, click here
Furthermore, we would also like to inform new and future users that our “Water hammer/surge analysis using BOSfluids” training course is available as an online training course. For more information on this course and other courses please visit us on EngineeringTrainer.com.
