Many defaults are supplied and range and validation checks are performed during the data input. Data are also subject to rigorous checking for realism and consistency. Obvious errors such as negative pressures are not allowed. Warnings are issued for data items that appear to be unreasonable – for example, too few baffles, too tight tube spacing. Data may be entered in a wide range of dimensional units.
Each window has a Help button which gives information about the data requirements of that window.
The configuration of a network is defined in the PFD drawing. Other data are entered in data entry windows. They include:
You may define any number of Cases for a Network.
Case Data include:
