AFT Fathom 11.0.1103 Build 2020.03.19

Fluid Dynamic Simulation Software

AFT Fathom is fluid dynamic simulation software for engineers, used to calculate pressure drop and pipe flow distribution in liquid and low-velocity gas piping and ducting systems.

  • Accurately simulate individual system components and interaction
  • Tightly integrates equipment characteristics, analysis and output with your system’s schematic representation
  • Provides a wide array of features without sacrificing your need for a short learning curve
  • Frees you to focus on your system, not the mechanics of software manipulation
  • Significantly improves the quality of systems engineering you can achieve, leading to less costly, more efficient and more reliable piping systems

Capabilities

  • Experiment with operating conditions and scenarios
  • Easily change system input data, including valve positions, pump operation, control set points, pressures, temperatures and more
  • Model a wide range of system components for both design and operational cases
  • Vary your system line-up: open / close pipes and valves, turn pumps on or off, set control valves to fail position
  • Specify design alerts that automatically highlight output values that are out of range for flow, pressure, velocity, pump efficiency and more
  • Find pump data from online manufacturer catalogs
  • Compile libraries of your frequently used piping components and select them from a drop-down list
  • Address the viscosity and frictional changes associated with pumping non-settling slurries and a variety of other non-Newtonian fluids
  • Evaluate codes and industry standards applied in the model
  • Calculate the cost of system pipes and components as well as energy cost
  • Import piping layouts from:
  • CAESAR II® Neutral files supported by AutoPIPE®, ROHR2, TRIFLEX®, and others
  • PCF Files supported by AutoCAD Plant 3D®, SmartPlant®, CADWorx® and others
  • GIS shapefiles supported by ArcGis and others
  • Import and export files in EPANET format
  • Clearly import Excel data into multiple scenarios and export with the Excel Export Manager

Typical Applications

  • Pipe & pump sizing
  • Pump selection software
  • Control valve sizing and selection
  • Simulating system operation and component interaction
  • Evaluating heat transfer in pipes and heat exchangers
  • Troubleshooting existing systems to determine the cause of operational problems
