AutoPIPE is the choice of leading EPCs worldwide. The most comprehensive piping analysis software for 20 years in small to high-end piping projects worldwide for the power, oil and gas, petrochemical, offshore, and nuclear markets. Faster engineered piping systems backed by nuclear Quality Assurance to ISO 9001.
AutoPIPE 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.
AutoPIPE provides comprehensive design including advanced analysis features such as nonlinear hydrotest analysis, integrated through-wall thermal gradient, built-in fluid transient analysis, thermal bowing or stratification, seismic response spectra enveloping, and steam relief analyses for process, power, oil and gas, nuclear, underground, offshore FPSO platform, and subsea pipeline areas. Nuclear approved software allows users to design Class 1, 2, and 3 nuclear piping systems. Approvals include standards such as 10CFR Part 50, 10CFR 21, and ASME NQA-1-2008/2009a.
AutoPIPE was developed as a scalable offering to meet the needs of companies working in industries like nuclear and fossil power, process and chemical plants, ASME and DNV offshore FPSO platform and riser design, fire protection systems, oil refineries, cross-country gas and oil pipelines, non-metallic (FRP and HDPE plastic) piping, and building services piping. AutoPIPE now incorporates ASME, British, European, German, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, API, NEMA, ANSI, ASCE, AISC, UBC, ISO, and WRC guidelines and design limits.
AutoPIPE offers unparalleled integration to all major intelligent 3D CAD systems like OpenPlant, AutoPLANT, PlantSpace, Intergraph PDS and SmartPlant, AutoDesk Plant3D, and Aveva PDMS. Automated intelligent stress isometrics can be easily generated and customized using AutoPIPE's Isometric Manager. Anyone on the project team can make early design decisions, view full model and graphical data, and perform 3D hot clash detection of both AutoPIPE and CAD models side by side with Bentley Navigator. AutoPIPE Plus now includes AutoPIPE Nozzle under the new name “AutoPIPE Advanced”.
AutoPIPE features the only piping and structural analysis integration solution with STAAD.Pro and SACS on the market today. Create a structural model in STAAD.Pro, move it into Bentley AutoPIPE for more realistic integrated piping and structural analysis, then transfer the final piping model complete with pipe support loads to the Bentley STAAD model in minutes—true "round-tripping" of structural and piping information! Similarly as in STAAD, SACS can import pipe support loads to the SACS model in minutes.
In addition AutoPIPE can now transfer piping nozzle loads on vessels to AutoPIPE Vessel for final vessel design.
Bentley AutoPIPE enables users to create, modify, and review piping and structural models and their results quickly and easily while offering advanced linear and non-linear analysis capabilities under static and dynamic conditions like temperature, wind, wave, buoyancy, snow, seismic, and transient loadings.
