Exceeding Expectations with AFT Fathom™ 11

What does hydraulic flow analysis software do? It helps real people, at real companies, solve real problems. For over 25 years, Applied Flow Technology (AFT) has developed industry-leading hydraulic flow software that allows engineers in over 80 countries to proactively design, analyze, and solve piping system problems. 

AFT has announced the development and new version release of their flagship software, AFT Fathom 11 for incompressible flow systems. 

Trey Walters, P.E., President of Applied Flow Technology says, “With AFT Fathom, we always strive to provide more powerful features to allow engineers to push the boundaries of system analysis. The new version 11 builds on our history of leadership in numerous ways. The most important of these is handling multiple operating scenarios. This includes comparing input data between multiple scenarios, as well as generating composite pump vs. system curves for multiple scenarios.”

New features include: 

  • Multi-Scenario Comparison: Data can be compared between multiple scenarios to show changes made 
  • Cross-plot Pump vs. System curves across multiple operating scenarios
  • Multi-level undo and redo on the Workspace
  • All Summary Output parameters can now be displayed on the Visual Report
  • Double-click on a junction on the Toolbox to add multiple to the Workspace (similar to pipes)
  • Convert intermediate elevations to new pipes and branches
  • Can now save ‘design alerts’ and load from a file

AFT Fathom is a fluid dynamic simulation software used by engineers in over 80 countries to calculate pressure drop and flow distribution in liquid and low-velocity gas piping and ducting systems.

AFT Fathom helps engineers understand their piping system and predict how pipes, valves, pumps, and other components interact with each other. It allows them to easily model, analyze and simulate their systems in order to evaluate the performance of new designs and assure all design requirements are met. AFT Fathom truly helps engineers accurately select and size components, so they can produce less costly and more reliable piping systems.
