Hi folks. just curious to see if anyone is using sophisticated software to determine pressure decay rates based on rupture between two valves. So if a 16-inch pipeline was 5 miles long between valve segments, operating at 500 psig, is sophisticated software the only way to determine what the pressure decay would be if a rupture event occurs in the middle of the segment? Basically looking to validate set points for a line break actuation (non-remote controlled). thanks in advance.
