AutoPIPE

Piping Analysis for Productivity, Integration, and Quality



AutoPIPE V8i provides a comprehensive and advanced software tool specialized in pipe stress analysis. The intuitive modeling environment and the advanced analysis features provide for increased productivity and improved quality control. Fluent data collaboration can be obtained through the integration with structural and 3D models providing an environment for increased business growth.

  • Steam relief analyses for process, power, oil and gas, nuclear, underground, offshore FPSO platform, and subsea pipeline areas.

  • Nuclear certification is included, allowing users to design nuclear structures. Certification provided: 10CFR Part 50, 10CFR 21, and ASME NQA-1-2000.

  • Automated intelligent stress isometrics can be easily generated and customized.

  • Automatic clash detection of both AutoPIPE V8iand CAD models side by side with ProjectWise Navigator.

  • AutoPIPE V8i features the only piping and structural analysis integration offering with STAAD.Pro on the market today.
