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.
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.
The new BOSfluids release brings many small and large improvements to its user interface that make it even more efficient and versatile.
The BOSfluids element collection has been extended with a new element type for modeling shell and tube heat exchangers.
DRG is pleased to announce the next release of BOSfluids, version 7.0.
One of the features that makes BOSfluids stand out from other surge analysis applications is its ability to deal with 3-D piping model.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
