Description: SigmaPipe is a free, easy-to-use Windows software package for all engineers. It deals with pipe flow by combining conventional (plug flow) engineering calculations with 3D object programming in a video game-like environment. It allows time-poor engineers to solve problems such as orifice critical flow, valve characteristics and flow achievable with a given pump-line combination almost effortlessly. This webinar will provide a general introduction and software demonstration for those who would like to know more.
