1D Systems Analysis


Utilising state-of-the-art engineering software, DOCAN can effectively examine the variations of 1D thermofluidic systems to predict accurate outcomes and optimise their design and operation for use in real-world applications.


Our 1D systems analysis capabilities

DOCAN has a wide range of specialisms across the fluid dynamics field, and has worked with businesses across a spectrum of industries to perform accurate analysis on their 1D systems and devise suitable solutions.

We combine our extensive skills and knowledge of thermo-fluids along with the methodology applied in our CFD consulting services, and can provide analysis on 1D systems in some of the following areas:

  • General network fluid flow analysis
  • Process and Power Generation piping systems
  • Gas Turbines
  • Nuclear & MSR
  • District heating systems
  • Hydrogen systems
  • Supercritical Carbon Dioxide (sCO2) systems
  • …and more.

1D systems analysis with Flownex®

Flownex® Simulation Environment is an industry-leading tool used by engineers globally to design and optimise fluid flow and heat transfer systems. The software allows us to study how flow and heat transfer systems behave in real-world situations, where fluid is the driving force.

Flownex 1 dimensional thermo-fluid system modeller and solver has capabilities to handle flows of pure liquids or gases, mixed flows, compressible and incompressible fluids, incondensable, two-phase, and slurry flows. The software is ideal for use on any fluid-based process and focuses on the entire system as opposed to a specific component within it.

Flownex is developed in an ISO9001:2008 and NQA1 quality assurance system environment and is the only software of its kind to hold a nuclear accreditation.

DOCAN are registered Flownex channel partners, well-versed in using the software to conduct 1D systems analysis.
