21 THiNK Summary: Definition: Thermal Hydraulic Integrated NetworK is an advanced, first principles, precision simulation engine and is used for modeling boilers, piping networks, turbines, condensers, and heat exchangers commonly found in process plants. It solves the time and spatially dependent thermal hydraulic equations for the conservation of mass, momentum, and energy using a modification of the Finite Element Method (FEM). THINK uses an implicit method for integrating the equations in time to allow large simulation time steps for real or faster than real time simulation.. Applications:Task-specific simulators for control system checkout, process plant optimization, and operator training in manufacturing, chemical, pulp and paper, specialty chemical, and energy industries.
