For those working with atypical fluids, FM-109 provides insight into how to specify and model them in PIPE-FLO to better represent their behavior in piping systems. Properties of these fluids will be discussed, along with how to translate those properties into PIPE-FLO to get results reflecting real-world behavior. Creating fluids with data from other sources will be discussed, including using incomplete or ambiguous data, as well as behavior and factors associated with non-Newtonian (shear thinning/shear thickening) and higher viscosity fluids. Students will walk through specifying and applying these fluids in a virtual lab, hands-on environment.
