Pipe Stress Analysis and Design Software

Ensure high quality, cost-effective designs, and a smooth workflow.

Model, Analyze, and Visualize Pipe Stress

Improve efficiency with object-oriented “point-and-click” interactive modeling. Save time and improve consistency due to AutoPIPE’s robust integration with all major intelligent 3D CAD systems. Rapidly set up, analyze, and visualize results for various loading scenarios, including thermal, seismic, wind, and dynamic (response spectra) load cases.

Check Structural Interoperability and Pipe Stress Clashes

Improve model accuracy and better represent real life plants by including the support structural stiffness in the piping model and transfer the support reaction loads to STAAD.Pro. Analyze any static or dynamic loading condition applied to piping and structures and determine the pipe stress operational displacements and clash check them against the entire plant model.

Comply with Industry Codes and Standards

Ensure your projects comply with major American (ASME) and European (EN) metallic piping codes. The software includes API, NEMA, ANSI, ASCE, AISC, UBC, ISO, and WRC guidelines and design load limits. AutoPIPE offers easily accessible, built-in ASME B31J flexibility and stress intensification factor calculations with a simple checkbox.



AutoPIPE software being used for pipe stress analysis

GE Water & Process Technologies

“Seamless software integration from AutoPIPE and STAAD contributed to a shortened product qualification process, saving 60% of the analysis and design cycle time. The software also helped us to coordinate with design teams on final assembly, fabrication, and production, and enabled the timely market launch of the product.”


Analyze and Visualize Pipe Stress

Maintain confidence in the safety of your engineering designs with static and load sequencing nonlinear analysis. Examine and analyze different loading scenarios including thermal, seismic, wind, and dynamic. Instantly view stresses, deflections, forces, and moments. Save time and reduce errors with robust integration to all major intelligent 3D CAD systems.


Check Pipe Stress Displacements and Clashes

Increase plant model accuracy by determining pipe stress displacements due to loading cases such as temperature, seismic, or other extreme loading conditions. Analyze any loading condition applied to piping and structures then use MicroStation or OpenPlant Modeler to evaluate and resolve clashes.


Take Advantage of Comprehensive Compliance with Standards

Ensure your projects comply with more than 30 global design standards across the power, nuclear, offshore, chemical, and oil and gas industries. Incorporate ASME, British, European, French, Japanese, Russian, API, NEMA, ANSI, ASCE, AISC, UBC, ISO, and WRC guidelines and design limits.


Design and Model Piping

Design, model, and analyze 3D piping systems to international piping specifications based on parametric component catalogs. Integrate the 3D piping model with pipe stress analysis tools to increase design quality and design productivity. Improve the overall engineering integrity and quality of piping models.


Reference Structural Model for Pipe Stress Analysis

Reuse design data by creating a structural model in STAAD or SACS and import it into AutoPIPE for a more realistic, fully integrated, bi-directional piping and structural analysis. You can also import the final piping model, complete with pipe support loads, into the Bentley STAAD or SACS model.
