AutoPIPE Advanced CONNECT Edition

Advanced Piping Design and Analysis Software

AutoPIPE CONNECT Edition Release version 12 is now available!

AutoPIPE Advanced CONNECT Edition provides you with a comprehensive and advanced software tool specialized in pipe stress analysis. Increase your productivity and improve quality control with an intuitive modeling environment and advanced analysis capabilities. Ensure efficient workflows between pipe stress engineers, structural engineers, and CAD designers through interoperability with leading plant design applications.

AutoPIPE Advanced CONNECT Edition supports the following codes...

    - ASME B31.1: Power Piping

    - ASME B31.3: Process Piping

    - ASME B31.4: Liquid Transportation Systems for Hydrocarbons, Liquid Petroleum Gas, Anhydrous Ammonia, and Alcohols, Chapter IX Offshore Liquid Piping Systems

    - ASME B31.8: Gas Transmission and Distribution Piping SystemsChapter VIII Offshore Gas Transmission

    - ASME B31.11: Slurry Transportation Piping Systems

    - ASME B31.12: Hydrogen Piping and Pipelines standard

and various Piping design codes. See all support design codes here: Piping Design Codes


Interoperability with 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 now read and write CAESAR II files !

Stress Isometric in AutoPIPE.

Stress Isometrics can be generated automatically via OpenPlant Isometric Manager.

*OpenPlant Isometric Manager is included now in AutoPIPE Advanced CONNECT Edition only.


AutoPIPE saves you time by enabling you to create, modify, and review piping and structural models and their results quickly and easily. Save even more time by addressing static and dynamic analysis in one application offering advanced linear and non-linear analysis capabilities for temperature, wind, wave, buoyancy, snow, seismic, and transient loadings.

Pipe supports analysis with Structural analysis software.

AutoPIPE allows the engineers to transfer Pipe stress data importing into the structural environment in STAAD.Pro.
