Applied Flow Technology (AFT) has launched a major upgrade to its Fathom modelling and analysis software, AFT Fathom.

AFT version Fathom 10 adds a number of new features to AFT’s fluid dynamic simulation software. Fathom was first created almost 25 years ago to be used by engineers for calculating pressure drop and flow distribution in liquid and low velocity gas piping and ducting systems.

New features include the ability to utilise a 2D or isometric interface, as well as delineated input for rotodynamic (centrifugal) and positive displacement pump data, and the option to automatically determine the acceleration head in positive displacement pump suction piping to prevent cavitation and performance issues.

Trey Walters, P.E., President of Applied Flow Technology says, “AFT’s reputation for technical depth is now accompanied by our ability to integrate more than ever with Excel, GIS Shapefiles, CAESAR II, EPANet, AutoCAD Plant 3D, SmartPlant, PDS and CADWorx as well as utilize 2D or isometric pipe model viewing. These factors add a level of ability to not only efficiently model and analyze a system, but to present it to others in a cohesive fashion.”
