Yes they do, click the |> Play button and it will play the animation. You can even click the Slow button to slow it down, rewind, fast forward etc.

Navigator7, I have the document you were looking for. I also have some extra stuff I was able to get from SuperFlow on testing. I'll see what I can put together.

Cool! What document was I looking for?

I admit I'm interested. Don't send me a .doc, however. Mac guy here.

Probably what you mentioned earlier about flow into pipes
--------------------------------------
I found and then lost a webpage that showed the flow into pipes.
Thought I could find it again and share....but naught.
Essentially it was establishing a coefficient rating for different pipe entrances.
Some very real figures for us spudders.
--------------------------------------

I would be interested too if you don't mind sending it to me as well bnoji.

And Nav, just in case you need to convert documents or anything, http://www.zamzar.com/ may come in handy.

I remember reading about flow in the deep well drilling....basically, sharp edges are the absolute worst for flow.
A feature I avoided with the WaterDawgâ„¢ by bullnosing every sharp edge.

Don't know if it made a difference but it sure works well.

which valve would work best (open fastest, release more air, propel projectile further, take more pressure

barrel sealing piston valve.how much pressure you are going to use:?:.
burstdisc open fastest, but it is not safe to use and you have to change the disck after every shot:x...
if your going to make your first valve make barrel sealing or coaxial piston valve:D
