While 1D flow simulation software can accurately and rapidly simulate simple tasks, such as long straight runs, they
are not adapted to complex 3D geometries such as separators, slug catchers and dry trees. Full 3D Computational
Fluid Dynamics (CFD) codes, on the other hand, have the proven ability to accurately predict flow in these situations,
although typically at a much higher computational cost. Generating combined 1D/3D simulations promises the best of
both worlds: by making it possible to simulate complex systems of piping and equipment at a much higher level of
accuracy than 1D-only simulations and in much less time than 3D-only codes, problems can be prevented earlier in the
