PIPES++ is a program which models flow and quality in a town water supply pipe system. Components which can be modelled include:
Minor Head Losses
Reservoir Inlet Control Valves
Various specialised control valves
Pressure Reducing Valves
Pressure Sustaining Valves
Flow Control Valves
Pipe flows may be calculated using either the Colebrook White equation or the Hazen Williams equation. If you select the Colebrook White equation, you will need to specify the pipe wall roughness (mm or millifeet). Darcy’s factor (f) will then be calculated using either the Laminar flow equation (when Reynolds Number <= 2000) or the Colebrook White Equation (when Reynolds Number > 2000).
