New content BOSfluids training course

We are glad to announce that the BOSfluids course has been updated. The course has been restructured and expanded to provide insights on the latest version of the BOSfluids program.

BOSfluids: Steady State license option

The latest BOSfluids release brings a new, low-cost license option that is aimed at users who are primarily interested in performing steady state analyses.

Upcoming BOSfluids release offers a steady state license option

BOSfluids is mostly known and used for transient flow analyses. However, it also provides a robust, fast and accurate steady state flow solver that can handle systems filled with liquids or gases. The upcoming BOSfluids 7.0 will offer a steady state license option that makes BOSfluids a very capable and cost-effective solution for the analysis […]

BOSfluids: Two-phase flood and drain analyses

When an empty, or gas filled, piping system is rapidly filled with a liquid, then significant forces can be exerted by the liquid on the system, especially when the liquid hits a significant flow restriction or the end point of a pipeline section. Indeed, there have been multiple incidents involving firewater systems in which these […]

BOSfluids: Improved pump model and user interface

Pump failure is a common cause of problematic transient flow conditions in piping systems. Simulation of pump failure is therefore an effective way to assess the robustness of a piping system before actual damage can occur. The pump model implemented by BOSfluids uses built-in pump curves to simulate the operating conditions of a pump after […]

BOSpulse: New support for generating torque graphs

The reciprocating compressor models implemented by BOSpulse require a substantial number of input parameters that affect the magnitude and shape of the generated flow rate. As the flow rate is the main source of the pressure pulsations, a small mistake in the input parameters can lead to an inaccurate or even invalid API assessment. To […]
