Hydraulic Components - Junctions


Junctions are used to make the pipe to pipe connections, for example, a pipe change of direction will need a bend, or two streams combining will need a tee or wye junction. 

You can make junctions dynamically on the flowsheet by making a pipe connection to an existing junction (or deleting a pipe from an existing junction) or you can explicitly drop a specific junction type onto the flowsheet from the component palette.

The table below shows the application of different junction components available in the FluidFlow database:

The table below shows the required data input and the output for the junction components. Note that the results table varies depending upon the fluid phase state and the visible properties selected by the user.
