Many design and operating simulation questions can’t be answered without knowing how critical parameters vary over time. Extend your modeling capabilities into the time domain by performing a series of steady-state solutions with variables changing automatically to achieve a dynamic simulation of your system.
The module lets you define a wide range of actions to occur during the time simulation, including:
AFT Fathom Extended Time Simulation Module FAQ's
What kinds of transients can the AFT Fathom XTS Module model?
Many kinds of events can be used, such as pressure, flow, velocity and liquid level. Inherent transients are changes that occur by the very nature of a system component.
Two examples would the liquid level change that occurs in a finite reservoir (or tank), while another would be a check valve opening and closing as a result of flow reversals.
