Resumen

COSTA, A.L.H.; MEDEIROS, J.L. de  y  PESSOA, F.L.P.. STEADY-STATE modeling and simulation of pipeline networks for compressible fluids. Braz. J. Chem. Eng. [online]. 1998, vol.15, n.4, pp. 344-357. ISSN 0104-6632.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-66321998000400004.

This paper presents a model and an algorithm for the simulation of pipeline networks with compressible fluids. The model can predict pressures, flow rates, temperatures and gas compositions at any point of the network. Any network configuration can be simulated; the existence of cycles is not an obstacle. Numerical results from simulated data on a proposed network are shown for illustration. The potential of the simulator is explored by the analysis of a pressure relief network, using a stochastic procedure for the evaluation of system performance.

Palabras llave : pipeline networks; compressible flow; pressure relief networks.
