Applied Flow Technology has recently released a student version of its incompressible pipe flow and analysis software, AFT Fathom.
AFT Fathom Student is a simplified version of its parent software. It allows engineering students to validate their work and model piping systems, and is particularly useful for those studying mechanical, chemical and civil engineering.
AFT Fathom Student is able to model systems of up to 12 pipes and heat transfer in pipes and heat exchangers. It includes goal seek and control (GSC), which simulates control functions and helps to evaluate the effects of changing system parameters. It also includes extended time simulation (XTS) such that it performs a series of steady-state solutions, with variables changing automatically to achieve a dynamic simulation of your system.
AFT President, Trey Walters, commented: “We are excited to get this into the hands of students so they can further improve the connection of the principles they are learning at university to engineering tools like AFT Fathom.
