5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM
currently provides for maxima of:
50 nodes per leg
15 three-way junctions
1000 points per plot
1 line per plot
The fluid properties are those for sodium, and the pipe properties
are those for Type 304 stainless steel. The above restrictions
should not be difficult to alter; the following restrictions are
more stringent. There may be 1 or 2 pipe ends with prescribed
pressure-time history. All pumps have the same set of
characteristics. Fluid temperatures must be constant with time,
must be the same for all points within a leg, and must be the same
for all connecting legs at a pump, at a tee, or at a Y-junction.
The minimum leg length must not be smaller than
(time-step)*(pressure-pulse-speed + fluid-velocity).
