Abstract: Over the past 25 years engineers in the natural gas industry have come to depend on the computer as a tool to perform complex hydraulic network analysis. Analysis, which would take weeks to perform by hand or by punchcard machines 30 years ago, can now be accomplished in mere hours or sometimes seconds. Today gas network analysis software, though complex and extremely sophisticated, has become very user friendly. Low cost PCs, inexpensive software and exible software licensing now make it possible for almost anyone to have access to these powerful engineering tools. Today, more and more non-technical persons are using this cutting edge technology to perform analyses that were once performed by specialists. Although computer technology has paved the way for a new generation of gas network analysis enthusiasts, it is important that fundamental gas pipeline hydraulic concepts are not forgotten. Its imperative that users of network analysis software know what is going on behind the scenes.
