This paper describes a user-friendly software for the calculation of general piping system networks composed of virtually any parallel and series pipe arrangement. Solution of the network is made with recourse to the iterative method of Hardy Cross. Solution is provided for pressure and flow-rate in each branch. Dimensioning problems, where pump… (More)
