Modeling Pressure Balance in-line flexible joint in AutoPIPE

Download the attached file for details in modeling a Pressure Balance in-line flexible joint using AutoPIPE.  

This file includes:

  • Readme.txt file explaining the models
  • 2 AutoPIPE Models
  • MS Excel worksheet on the modeling approach. 

Note: The models and MS Excel sheet description does not match exactly. There is an extra expansion joint in the model that is not referenced in the MS Excel sheet. This is OK as the concept for the overall expansion joint is still the same.
