Fluid Flow Programs

What fluid flow analysis programs have been for the reader the most helpful/reliable and accurate in the compressible and non-compressible flow regimes? Why? I am looking at purchasing one and I would like some input from others who use these programs extensively. Plus, the price ranges are from $1100 to over $6000 & why by the expensive onbe when the least expensive (Crane) will do the job just as well as the more expensive (Flo-Series)one.

Thanks for your input.

RE: Fluid Flow Programs

We use Fluid Flow from Flite software and we like it. Tried Pipenet and AFT's range but all opted for Fluid Flow. We are now beta testing the Version 3 and like the new features (once the bugs are out but it is a beta).
You can get a demo version of version 2 from flites webpage www.fluidflowinfo.com
It is easy to use and version 3 looks superb for capability.
Have a look and try it.

RE: Fluid Flow Programs

I have been using Pipe-Flo from Engineered software for nearly 15 years and I find it extremely good. You can model pipes, equipment and pumps and resolution is extremely fast even in complex networks. Cost is around $2500 to $4000 for network version
