Software solution - Flowmaster V7

Flowmaster V7 is a thermo-fluid system simulation software tool that allows marine system engineers to investigate pressure surge, pressure drop, flow rate, temperature and system response times – removing the uncertainty from fluid flow systems.

Due to the astronomical cost of downtime combined with the high safety requirements organisations are using Flowmaster V7 to reduce uncertainty through the use of system simulation. 

Flowmaster V7 - Key Software Capabilities

System Modelling & Simulation

  • Pressure surge analysis, temperature and fluid flowrate prediction
  • Steady State and Transient simulation of Incompressible and Compressible systems with Heat Transfer analysis
  • Extensive catalogue of component models - Inbulit empirical data
  • Fast batch simulation analysis
  • Pipe flow balancing - optimising component sizes and ensuring balanced distribution of water flow.
  • Intuitive graphical user interface featuring validated data entry, for reducing margin for error and dynamic colour rendering of simulations,

Simulation Data Control

  • Secure storage of networks, performance data, components and results centrally in an industry standard relational database
  • Audit trail of model design history with ‘roll back’ functionality
  • Open API and SDK development tools for extending and integrating into existing product development and optimisation systems.
