The overall philosophy of PIPENET – CAESAR II Interface is the following.
During the basic design phase PIPENET Spray/Sprinkler and Standard modules are used for sizing of pipes, selection of pumps and balancing flows. Once the basic design is completed PIPENET Transient module is used for dynamic analysis of how the system would behave when various events take place. One of the powerful features of PIPENET Transient module is its ability to calculate hydraulic force time history. The time history from PIPENET can be directly imported into CAESAR II. This interface gives the ability to predict the stresses and the movements which can arise due to the events, such as valve closure, which take place.
