Liquid Networks & Pumping Facility Analyses

Southwest Research Institute® (SwRI®) performs steady state and transient modeling of gas networks and compressor stations to determine if the system will safely meet the design requirements. These analyses have been utilized for:

Transient Analyses

  • Water hammer effects
  • Leak detection
  • Startup and shutdown
  • Fluid batching

Transmission Pipeline/Facility Hydraulic Evaluation

  • Design and optimization of new installations
  • Modifications of existing facilities
  • Hydraulic operation issues and bottlenecks
  • Flow and power usage maximization

System Reliability

  • Pressure limits
  • Temperature limits
  • System capacity

Root Cause Failure Analyses

  • Valve manifold transient pressure and flow predictions
  • Pipeline ruptures

Field troubleshooting and benchmarking services can also be provided.
