The goal in developing Hytran , apart from being an accurate analytical tool, was to produce software that is simple to use, and able to impart a better understanding of the water hammer phenomenon. The Windows environment is ideal for achieving this goal. Seeing real time transient graphics flashing across the display screen takes away much of the mystery that seems to surround this topic.
The developer of Hytran , Dr Norman Lawgun, has had over 20 years experience as a consultant to many of the major Civil Engineering consulting companies in Auckland, New Zealand. The program was first developed in Fortran using mainframe computers while Dr Lawgun was lecturing at the School of Engineering, University of Auckland, New Zealand. With the growing power and popularity of the PC, the Windows object oriented version was launched in the mid 90's. The entire program is written in Microsoft's Visual C++.

Hytran v3.7.6-2 Now available
For Windows XP, Vista and 7 gets the job done quicker and easier!
Hytran is a Windows software package for analyzing HYdraulic TRAN sients or water hammer in pipelines and is written in the object oriented C++ language for Windows environment. Intuitive Windows graphics enable a pipeline to be drawn, input data, edited and ready for analysis in minutes.
See real time transient graphics flashing across the screen as the transients propagate along a pipeline. Indicators show cavitation and flow direction providing a full picture of the water hammer phenomenon.
Transients at selected locations along the pipe network are plotted simultaneously on the screen.
Unless the program is used frequently, the learning process is often forgotten and relearned when the need arises. Or, the specialist engineer leaves and another engineer must grapple with the problem all over again.
