PRESSURE WAVES

MAIN FEATURES

  • Selection of an unlimited number of hydraulic systems for each analysis
  • Description of each system through standard data (pipe diameter, wall thickness, modulus of elasticity, constraints, etc.)
  • Definition of physical properties (density, bulk modulus, etc.) for each component of the mixture flowing in the system
  • Computation of mixture properties (density, bulk modulus, pressure wave speeds) in terms of volumetric fraction of liquid or gas
  • Comparison of analytical results with available field data
  • Visualisation of results
  • Suitable for designing and testing

OPTIONS FOR IO OPERATIONS

  • Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet Files (xlsx)

OPTIONS FOR GRAPHICS

  • Standard Image Formats (jpeg, tiff)
  • Portable Document Format (pdf)

TEST CASES

Figure 1 shows some basic computations for liquid-gas mixtures operating in two different systems.
