Because BOSfluids works with 3-D piping models you can directly correlate your model with the actual piping system, helping you avoid making mistakes. What is more, 3-D models result in accurate predictions of the magnitude, direction and exact location of the unbalanced fluid forces. This makes BOSfluids an ideal tool for combined fluid-structure analyses.
BOSfluids is one of the most efficient surge analysis applications available on the market. It is at least 10-100x times faster than most other applications which gives you great benefits: significant time savings, analyses of much larger models, and the simulation of many scenarios at once.
BOSfluids comes with advanced surge analysis technology that enables you to perform accurate transient analyses, combined fluid-structure analyses, two-phase flood and drain analyses, control system simulations, tube rupture analyses, pump failure simulations, automatic orifice sizing, and much more. BOSfluids can handle systems filled with liquids and gases, and comes with a flexible components database.
BOSfluids is designed to interact with other software packages. It can import and export piping models in common formats, including PCF and EPANET. It can also export unbalanced forces to various structural analysis programs, including CAESAR II, ANSYS and AutoPIPE. When exporting to CAESAR II, BOSfluids can set up everything that is needed to perform a dynamic structural analysis..
