”Rippling” is a powerful tool in TRIFLEX Windows
Using “Ripple” the user can easy modify the input data for the entire model, for a sequence of components from the input spreadsheet or for a selection of components
Rippling tools are present in most component data entry dialogs
You can ripple virtually everything:
- pressure - restraints
- insulation - uniform loads
TRIFLEX® WINDOWS www.pipingsolutions.com
On each dialog which supports rippling you will find three options:
1.Ripple Stops if Different – The rippling action will happen in the ascending order from the input spreadsheet and will stop when it reaches a component which has different data.
2. Ripple Selected Component – The rippling action will apply for all selected components. There are no restrictions on the sequence of the selected components.
3. Ripple to the Component # - The rippling will happen between the Current Component and the component listed at the item number input into the dialog. The rippling will be forward or backward in the sequence of the input spreadsheet.

Rippling stop if different
We want to change pipe size from 3” nominal diameter to 8” nominal diameter.
The direction of coding is from the anchor to the tee.
TRIFLEX® WINDOWS www.pipingsolutions.com
1.Open the anchor dialog for the beginning of the 3” pipe size branch
2. Change the nominal diameter from 3” to 8”
3. Select the radio button “Ripple Stops if Different”
4. Click with the mouse on “Ripple Size” button
TRIFLEX® WINDOWS www.pipingsolutions.com
The rippling process will stop at component 23 which is the first one in the list having a different diameter for the pipe.
By clicking “Yes” you agree with the rippling operation and you want to continue with the ripple.
Clicking “No” cancels the rippling operation.

The rippling changes can be verified in input graphics and the input spreadsheet.

Ripple Selected Component:
No conditions apply regarding the sequence of selections
The selections of the components can be done in the Input Spreadsheet or in Input Graphics
The selected components will me marked in the Input Spreadsheet with a black background
The selected components will be highlighted in Input Graphics
The rippling for selected components will happen unconditionally for all selected components
TRIFLEX® WINDOWS www.pipingsolutions.com
The operating temperature for this system is 900F.
We will change the temperature from 900F to 800F for the branches marked with
TRIFLEX® WINDOWS www.pipingsolutions.com
The selected components appear highlighted in input graphics and with black background in input spreadsheet
TRIFLEX® WINDOWS www.pipingsolutions.com
1.Double click with the mouse on one of the selected components.
2.Change the operating temperature from 900F to 800F.
3.Select the radio button “Ripple Selected Components”
4. Click with the mouse on “Operating Temperature” button from the “Ripple Selection” group
TRIFLEX® WINDOWS www.pipingsolutions.com
The effect of the rippling for operating temperature can be verified in the input spreadsheet and in input graphics

Ripple to a component:
How can we modify the temperature and pressure for the components between #10 and #30 from the Input Spreadsheet list?
TRIFLEX® WINDOWS www.pipingsolutions.com
Initial temperatures and pressures for component #10 from the Input Spreadsheet list
Modified temperatures and pressures for component #10 from the Input Spreadsheet list
TRIFLEX® WINDOWS www.pipingsolutions.com
1. Select the radio button “Ripple to the Component #” and type “30” in the input field
2. To ripple, click with the mouse on “Op Temp and Pressure” button
3. Select “Yes” if you want to continue or “No” if you want to cancel the rippling
TRIFLEX® WINDOWS www.pipingsolutions.com
The “ripple” operation was successful.
All the temperatures and pressures values from the components between #10 and #30 are modified.
