Whether you're modeling gas or liquid piping systems, perfecting your system design, studying your system's transient behavior or need fluid property data, AFT has the engineering software tools for you. Our industry-leading fluid dynamic simulation software is used by a variety of industries around the world to develop design solutions and troubleshoot existing systems.

Engineers use AFT for several reasons. The best reason is that AFT is a highly accurate calculation software that saves engineers from using extensive hand calculations or spreadsheets. What used to take days or weeks is able to be accomplished with AFT's pipe flow software in a short amount of time. The man-hours companies save by using AFT modeling and simulation software pays for software several times over.
