AFT Arrow 7.0.1207 Build 2019.12.11 | 302.7 Mb

FT Arrow is a fluid dynamic simulation tool used to calculate pressure drop and flow distribution in gas piping and ducting systems.

Accurately simulate individual components and their interaction including effects of heat transfer, real gases and choked flow

Tightly integrate equipment characteristics, analysis and output with your system’s schematic representation

Utilize a wide array of features without sacrificing your need for a short learning curve

Compare the performance of new designs and assure all design requirements are met.

Identify and correct operational problems in installed systems

Significantly improve the quality of systems engineering and produces less costly, more efficient and more reliable piping systems


Experiment and simulate with a wide range of design and operational system components

Select ideal or real gases

Calculate pressure drop in pipes

Choose between isothermal, adiabatic or generalized heat transfer conditions

Vary your system lineup: open and close pipes and valves, turn compressors or fans on or off, set control valves to fail position

Design and analyze critical flow conditions including flare and relief systems

Conduct flow analysis with high velocities including sonic choking

Compile catalogs of your frequently used components and quickly select them from a drop down list

Assemble non-reacting mixtures and analyze dynamic mixtures resulting from intersecting flow streams

Model and analyze rotating piping systems such as those found in steam and gas turbines

Simulate the effects of elevation changes such as in tall structures, subsurface mines and overland pipelines

Import piping layouts from:

CAESAR II® Neutral files supported by AutoPIPE®, ROHR2, TRIFLEX®, and others

PCF Files supported by AutoCAD Plant 3D®, SmartPlant®, CADWorx® and others

GIS shapefiles supported by ArcGis and others

Import and export files in EPANET format

Excel integration supporting data import and export

Primary Features of AFT Arrow 7:

Apply advanced marching methods which provide highly accurate results

Evaluate choking conditions and determine flow conditions downstream of choke pointsModel fans and compressors, control valves, heat exchangers and other components with precise detail

Specify relief valve behavior with opening and closing profiles to ensure your system fails safely

Track all your design variants and potential operating conditions in a single file with Scenario Manager

Use integrated, customizable graphing and reporting to make analysis visually intuitive

Calculate the capital costs of pipes and components as well as operating energy expenses

Leverage built-in libraries of fluids and fittings to build your own database upon

Built-in libraries of fluids (including NIST REFPROP and ASME Steam Tables) and fittings which can be extended and customized

Purchase the Optional Chempak™ database which provides a thermophysical database of almost 600 gases. SteamCalc and Chempak Viewers are included in the software for free.

Define non-reacting pre-mixtures, and simulate dynamic flow mixing

Import piping layouts from CAESAR II® Neutral files, PCF Files, and GIS shapefiles regardless of source

Integrate with Excel to import model data and export output data

Ensure a design adheres to industry standards such as API 526, ANSI/ISA-75.01.01 and more
