Abstract—In order to reduce danger and cost in physical chemical process training and testing, this paper designed a distributed virtual reality-based pipeline simulation system which has abilities of chemical process training, monitoring, testing and replaying. After proposing a data-driven simulation framework, this paper presented a virtual reality modeling method for pipeline simulation and a process path calculation method. Then a virtual prototypes pick-up method for device operation and related-information display was further analyzed. With Bernoulli's equation, a mathematical model for constant flowing and instant flowing of fluid in pipeline system are constructed to estimate flowing speed, flux and pressure in real time. Using aforementioned methods, a pipeline simulation system was developed and it was proven to be helpful for chemical process training, design and optimization by practical use.
