AutoPIPE CONNECT Edition is a stand-alone design and analysis application for calculation of piping stresses, fatigue stresses, fluid transient, bowing or thermal transient analysis, flange or pipe support design, and equipment nozzle loading analysis under static and dynamic loading condition.
AutoPIPE CONNECT Edition benefits;
AutoPIPE CONNECT Edition all features,
Integration and Interoperability CAESAR II and other programs.
AutoPIPE stores model information in a proprietary binary database structure. However, there are multiple translators provided to convert the most popular file types (PXF, PCF, ADL, DWG, etc..) into AutoPIPE models.
* AutoPIPE CONNECT Edition can read and write CAESAR II files!
Pipe supports analysis with Structural analysis software.
AutoPIPE allows the engineers to transfer Pipe stress data importing into the structural environment in STAAD.Pro.
Provide confidence in the safety of your engineering designs with static and load sequencing nonlinear analysis. Perform analyses to examine different loading scenarios including thermal, seismic, wind, and dynamic load cases. Instantly view stresses, deflections, forces, and moments.
Increase plant model accuracy by determining pipe stress displacements due to loading cases such as temperature, seismic, or other extreme loading conditions. Analyze any loading condition applied to piping and structures then use Navigator or OpenPlant Modeler to evaluate and resolve clashes
Ensure your projects comply with more than 30 global design standards across the power, nuclear, offshore, chemical, and oil and gas industries. Incorporate ASME, British, European, French, Japanese, Russian, API, NEMA, ANSI, ASCE, AISC, UBC, ISO, and WRC guidelines and design limits.
Design, model, and analyze 3D piping systems to international piping specifications based on parametric component catalogs. Integrate the 3D piping model with pipe stress analysis tools to increase design quality and design productivity. Improve the overall engineering integrity and quality of piping models
Reuse design data by creating a structural model in STAAD or SACS and import it into AutoPIPE for a more realistic, fully integrated, bi-directional piping and structural analysis. You can also import the final piping model, complete with pipe support loads, into the Bentley STAAD or SACS model.
