Automated Network Sizing (ANS) An AFT Fathom Add-on Module
Gone are the days of sizing each line individually. Automatically size all piping and system components in an integrated manner to minimize weight and cost. This is done using advanced numerical searching algorithms available in the ANS module.
The benefit to engineering design firms is that they can significantly reduce the costs on piping. Experience shows this reduction is typically 10-15%.
Further, if design firms so choose, they can also directly minimize monetary cost of the entire piping system based on initial cost or even recurring costs!
It is a software tool used to intelligently size piping and ducting systems to minimize cost. It offers a dramatic improvement to the traditional design process. Built on the advanced flow analysis and system modeling capabilities of AFT Fathom, it can simulate your piping system in complete detail.
Designed for fluid systems containing:
It is particularly useful for:
