REMARKS :
Type codes :
1 -> source
2 -> sink
3 -> valve
4 -> injector
5 -> relief valve
6 -> pump
7 -> pig
About Valves : To simulate a linear valve coefficient and exponent have to be set to 1.

About Pumps : The maximum rotation velocity should not exeed 150 rpm.
                                              The pump modul is based on the Poseidon model.
                                               The transient thermal option are not available with a pump.

About Relief Valves :The hole diameter of a relief valve should not exeed the half diameter of the pipe.

About Pigs :  The launcher location has to be on a mesh side but after the second global mesh side.
                                         The trap location has to be lower than the pipe length.
                                         The pig diamerter has to be lower or equal to the pipe diameter.
                                         The pig wall friction factor coefficient can be given equal to 1.
                                         No other equipment can be used with a pig.
                                         The pig length has to be lower or equal than the length of the shorter cell over 5.
