Piping Design and Analysis Software

#PipingEngineer #StructuralEngineer

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;

  • Save time with an easy-to-use application
  • Perform advanced analysis and design
  • Streamline multi-discipline workflows
  • Optimize pipe supports
  • Create graphical results and reports

  3. Automatic Ring Main Generator
  4. Batch Automation
  5. Flange Design
  6. Hanger Selection
  7. Hot Clash Detection
  8. Integration and Interoperability with AutoPLANT®, PlantSpace®, OpenPlant™, Plant 3D, PDS, PDMS, SmartPlant, CATIA, Inventor,
    SolidWorks, LISEGA, CADWORX, Excel, AutoCAD, and Ceasar II
  9. PipeLink
  10. Response Spectrum Analysis
  11. Snow Loading
  12. Static Earthquake Loadings (ALA/ASCE-2002 / 2010, GB50011-2001, Mexican CFE-2008, user-defined)
  13. Static Linear and Non-linear Analysis
  14. Thermal Bowing
  15. Wind Loadings (ASCE, ASCE 2002 and 2010, UBC and user profile)

Highlight 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!
