Accessible anywhere, ACADS-BSG’s latest software solution HYENA+ is now in the Cloud. HYENA+ can be used to analyse automatic fire sprinkler systems with a simple end, side or centre fed configuration or more complicated looped and gridded systems. It may also be used to analyse fire hydrant and hose reel installations, or combined sprinkler, hydrant and/or hose reel systems, or any other hydraulic systems where the discharges can be represented by a k factor and minimum flow.
With a given sized network the program performs a complete hydraulic analysis determining flow, pressure drop, and other technical data for each pipe in the entered network, taking account of all fittings entered by the user.
The Main Screen of HYENA+
Main features of HYENA+ are:
- Accessible anywhere, ACADS-BSG’s latest software solution HYENA+ is now in the Cloud. If you have access to the internet, you have access to HYENA+ , wherever you are.
- Capable of analysing looped, gridded and tree systems.
- HYENA+ can be used to carry out a fire sprinkler system analysis in accordance with NFPA, NZ4541, AS2118 or SSPC52.
- Capable of analysing fire hydrant systems, with or without hoses or hose reels.
- The network piping system can have up to 10 input points, and these can be modelled as a fixed pressure, town mains water supply, or via a pump.
- Works with a wide range of units including Metric, British lmperial, or US lmperial.
- Use either the Hazen-Williams or Darcy-Weisbach calculation methods.
- All input data is via a series of easy to navigate screens with numerous helpful features including drop down lists, selection lists, various sort options, etc. to facilitate easy data input.
- All nodes that are not nominated as discharges, or input points are automatically assigned as reference nodes where you only have to assign elevations, saving significant data input time.
- Piping materials complying with a wide range of codes are catered for including light, medium and heavy steel piping, cast ductile iron pipe, and copper tubing to Australian standards, New Zealand standards, API piping codes, all selected from a drop down list.
- When pipe sizes are entered as nominal sizes, the program determines the actual internal diameter from data stored in the program for the different pipe materials. The user can add to this list by entering their own custom pipe materials and associated internal diameters.
- Sort pipes by ascending or descending order, edit particular pipes and nodes, and globally change the pipe diameters or lengths with ease via the use of the global change function.
