Pipe Flow Wizard Software - Fitting DatabasePipe Flow Wizard comes with its own Fittings Database that contains K factors for many different types and sizes of pipe bends and valves. A fitting's K factor allows the pressure drop across the fitting to be calculated for a specific velocity of fluid flow through the pipe fitting. i.e the pressure drop through the fitting varies depending on the fluid velocity and use of an associated K factor allows the fitting pressure loss to be calculated for a particular flow rate.
Users can select from the database to add one or more fittings to the pipe. If the required fitting does not exist in the database then a new fitting with an appropriate k factor can easily added.
Up to 5 different fitting types (and a quantity of each) can be added to the pipe. The position of the fitting on the pipe (entry or exit) can be specified.
