LOOPS - Hardy Cross Pipe Analysis
Implementation of the familiar Hardy-Cross pipe distribution
algorithm. This software was designed for classroom use in
hydraulics. It allows students to analyze pipe distribution
networks. Support for Darcy-Weisbach and Hazen Williams friction
methods is offered. On-line documentation includes all example
problems needed to get up and running in the classroom with this
software. If you have previous installed the LOOPS program and
wish to update the executable only the current version of the
executable only can be downloaded by clicking on the update
below. It must be unzipped into the LOOPS directory.
Loops 1.02 is a program which
allows users to perform Hardy Cross method hydraulic loop
analysis. Performing this analysis involves a number of steps.
These steps should be followed for a successful Hardy Cross
analysis of your network.
1. Lay out your network on Paper
2. Assign Numbers and Flow Directions
3. Enter Data in Loops
4. Check All Data
5. Calculate All Parameters in Loops
6. Output Data
