How to Model a Flexible Hose in Transient Module
In PIPENET Vision 1.9.0 onwards, the user can set all pipes as “No pipe type” and input different wave speeds for each pipe, where there is no pipe type defined. Please also note that the diameter input in the properties window should be the pipe interior diameter rather than the nominal size because no pipe type has been selected.
The Young’s Modulus for a flexible hose is much smaller than it would be for a rigid pipe.
PIPENET users can change Young’s Modulus in the pipe schedule library and PIPENET will calculate the wave speed automatically.
