Insulation for Pipes

Insulation data can be entered on the Heat Transfer tab of a pipe. The insulation data is only included in the heat transfer calculations if a convective heat transfer model is entered. It may be entered for other heat transfer models, but will only be used for cost calculations. Internal insulation will reduce the flow area which AFT Arrow will account for in such cases. Insulation data is from the Nayyar Piping Handbook 2000Nayyar, M. L., Piping Handbook, 7th edition, McGraw-Hill, New York, NY, 2000. pages B.325-B.344.
