Quality Assurance is an integral part of our business ethic. From our software design approach through to our released product we attempt to work to the highest quality.
Before each minor or major release the results from FluidFlow3 are checked against over 300 networks. The results from 95 compressible flow calculations, 152 incompressible flow networks, 43 non-Newtonian and slurry examples, and 10 scripting networks are checked for accuracy.
The QA networks are installed with the product, so that our verification and test procedures are available for all users to view. Many examples have been taken from standard literature sources, while others are designed to 'stress' the calculation procedures.
Pressure loss, heat transfer, equipment operating outside normally accepted limits, physical property data at extremes, fluid mixing, phase change and sonic choking at size change and end points are some of the considerations tested.
The complexity and number of worked examples we check against is always under review; it is likely that number of checks we do against each release will keep increasing.
