AutoPIPE

Piping and Vessel Analysis and Design

AutoPIPE 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.

Because every firm has different needs, there are various options:

  • AutoPIPE - The most basic AutoPIPE option including piping design and analysis
  • AutoPIPE Advanced - Faster, more advanced and integrated pipe stress analysis including support optimizer feature
  • AutoPIPE Vessel - Design and analysis software for pressure vessels, heat exchangers, tanks, and air coolers
  • AutoPIPE Nuclear -  Nuclear piping design and analysis software for critical safety pipework to ASME Class 1, 2, or 3 standards.

Speed the design of Class 1, 2, and 3 nuclear piping systems with advanced analysis capabilities such as nonlinear hydrotest analysis, integrated through-wall thermal gradient, built-in fluid transient analysis, thermal bowing or stratification, and seismic response spectra enveloping, for process, power, oil and gas, nuclear, underground, offshore, and subsea pipeline.

This nuclear-approved software helps you ensure compliance against design standards including 10CFR Part 50, 10CFR 21, and ASME NQA-1-2008/2009a. 
Save time and reduce errors with integration to all major intelligent 3D CAD systems, such as OpenPlant, AutoPLANT, PlantSpace, Intergraph PDS and SmartPlant, AutoDesk Plant3D, and Aveva PDMS.

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.
