The design of a cooling water system

Cooling water installations are designed to cool an installation in the event of a nearby fire. This can be necessary if the contents of a tank or pressure vessel are likely to expand with heat. We can use BOSfluids to perform hydraulic calculations of steady state flows in a cooling water system that includes many deluge nozzles (sprinklers).

BOSpulse 5.0: Extended vessel and orifice models

The latest BOSpulse release brings extended Surge Vessel and Orifice element types. The SurgeVessel element has been extended with support for specifying the gas pressure and volume at the time of installation.

BOSfluids 7.0: Support for building 2-D piping models

switch-between-2d-3d klein

The ability to work with 3-D piping models has always been one of the fundam ental features of BOSfluids. This not only sets BOSfluids apart from similar software, but also makes it possible to obtain more accurate results, especially if the flow conditions of interest are affected by the geometry of the piping system. On […]

Paper: Well integrity of Fiberglass Casings in Geothermal Well Designs

Two of the key challenges currently encountered in operating geothermal wells using conventional steel casings are corrosion and scaling. These problems significantly reduce the lifespan of the steel casing systems, causing wellbore integrity issues, which could lead to major environmental contamination. Moreover, the corrosion leads to surface degradation of the casing, causing excessive pressure losses. […]

BOSpulse 5.0: Improved model building user interface

The upcoming BOSpulse release, version 5.0, comes with a new set up of the first two top-level tab pages in the user interface. This change improves the distinction between the actions that operate on the main model and those that operate on a sub-scenario. This change makes it possible to skip the Scenarios tab page […]
