PIPENET is the leader in rapid fluid flow analysis, widely used and specified by the largest and most progressive companies in the world. Looking at its comprehensive functionality and the complexity of networks designed and simulated in PIPENET today, it is difficult to imagine what PIPENET looked like when it originally came into existence.
Year 2017 marked the 40th anniversary since PIPENET was initially developed at the University of Cambridge in the distant 1977. Some of the first machines on which PIPENET was run were bulky mini- or mainframe computers. Calculation results could be seen on a visual display unit, or VDU, connected to the minicomputer by a cable. One of such VDUs is proudly kept at the Sunrise Systems Limited office:
