The Pipe Work System can be designed by drawing on the ‘3D’ grid.
Each pipe is drawn by dragging the mouse from the previous pipe position, to a new grid intersection, and clicking to confirm the new pipe position. Options are provided to add supply container, pump and discharge container(s). Branch lines can be added as needed, each branch line ends with either another container or an open outlet.
The pressure loss data for each pipe is calculated as each pipe is drawn.
The material and size of each pipe is drawn using the default drawing size / flow chosen by the user.
Once the system drawing has been completed, the length, diameter, flow rate and direction of any pipe can be changed as required. New pipes can be inserted into the system, or pipes may be deleted from the system.
PipeFlow 3D makes Pressure Drop Calculations easy.

The Reynold’s number and ‘relative roughness’ are used to establish the friction factor and the flow type.
The pipe friction loss is displayed in either m head (or ft. head). The friction loss due to pipework fittings is also displayed.
The pipe friction loss, the effect of any rise or fall, the friction loss due to pipework fittings, and any fixed pressure together with the fluid density is used to calculate the total pressure drop. The total pressure drop is displayed in either bar, kPa, or psi.
By moving the cursor to any pipe joint node the data for that selected pipe can be displayed.
