Support for automatically creating the tables containing the areas and node numbers that are used to determine the shaking forces acting on Pulsation Suppression Devices (PSDs). It is also possible to export the shaking forces by specifying a pairs of nodes on which the shaking forces are to be applied.
Support for defining gas/liquid properties as a function of the temperature. This can be used to get the correct wave speed in each pipe element if the temperature in a model varies significantly. Addtionally BOSpulse now also supports defining gas properties using the procedure described in the AGA Report No. 8, Part 1 (April 2017).
Support for exporting the shaking forces to Bentley AutoPipe. This makes it possibly to perform a mechanical response study with AutoPipe using the shaking forces calculated by BOSpulse. A node remap table can be specified that indicates which nodes in the BOSpulse model correspond with which nodes in the AutoPIPE model.
Support for automatic adjustment of the acoustic length of pipe elements at T-junctions. The acoustic length is adjusted only if: the pipe is connected to one or two T-junctions; the other elements connected to the T-junction are pipe elements and form a straight line (180 degree angle); the other pipe elements have the same inner diameter; the angle between the pipe and the header is at least 40 degrees; and the pipe protrudes at least one quarter of its diameter from the header pipe.
General Undo/Redo support.
Additional options for modelling reciprocating equipment.
Included a Bill of Quantity, to provide a quick overview of all piping/equipment in the model.
