Fluidnet: A Thermal and Hydraulic Software for the Preliminary Sizing of Fluid Loop Systems 881045

FLUIDNET is a new computer program for preliminary sizing of fluid loop networks used in space thermal control systems.
The program was developed at AEROSPATIALE'S Cannes facility, under a contract of the french space agency (CNES), on joint CNES/AEROSPATIALE funding.
FLUIDNET is an interactive application, whose main features are portability, easy implementation, speed and flexibility. It is fully complementary with design tools like SINDA and ESATAN fluid loop analysis extensions (FLUINT and FHTS).
The current version is applied to thermal and hydraulic analysis of single phase fluid loops in steady state.
Further version is already in development with increased performances, in particular analysis of transient phases.
For first applications, this program is essentially devoted to HERMES thermal control subsystem design.
