Fluid Dynamics Expert Presenting at Valve World 2010 Conference

LACEY, Washington - Engineered Software, Inc., the leading provider of software used to design and simulate the operation of fluid piping systems announced that it has been granted at speaking spot at the 2010 Valve World Conference. This year the Valve World Conference will be located in Düsseldorf, Germany, in conjunction with the Valve World Expo from November 30 to December 2, 2010.

Engineered Software's Chief Engineer and CEO, Ray Hardee, P.E. will be presenting back to back on two topics related to fluid dynamics. The first session, "Comparison of resistance coefficient calculation methods for various valves and fittings under turbulent and laminar flow conditions," will begin at 9:00 AM on Thursday December 2nd. The information covered in this session is based upon research conducted during update process to Crane Technical Paper 410. The second session will follow immediately at 9:30 AM covering, "Using Fluid Flow Simulation Software to Troubleshoot Problems with Control Valves in Operating Piping Systems."  

Ray T. Hardee, P.E. has over 30 years experience in the fluid handling industry. He is author of the book, "Piping System Fundamentals," and has written dozens of articles and papers to various magazines and standards publications and has given over a thousand presentations on fluid piping around the world.

"We are excited to be making our two presentations at the Valve World Conference this year," said Hardee. "Since the update and addition of new equations to the Crane TP-410, we have wanted to highlight some of the different methods outlined in the book for making common fluid dynamic calculations for valves and fittings. It will also be highly valuable to demonstrate how easily engineers can troubleshoot problems with control valves. These will be great take-aways for anyone having to understand how valves affect their piping systems," Hardee added.

Engineered Software will also be displaying their entire product line at the exhibit show in Hall 4, booth #E47. The PIPE-FLO product line is used by designers and operators to gain a clear picture of their fluid piping systems. The program allows users to visualize their systems in a familiar format, calculate system operations, easily communicate the design with others, and access supporting documents in electronic format.
