• AutoPIPE

    Design and analyze piping systems quickly and easily

Piping Design and Analysis Software

AutoPIPE provides you with a comprehensive and advanced software tool specializing 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 includes special features for advanced buried pipeline analysis, operational (hot) clash detection, wave loading, fluid transients, and FRP/GRP or plastic pipe, as well as time-saving integration with other Bentley and third-party applications such as OpenPlant, AutoPLANT, PlantSpace, Hexagon PDS and SmartPlant, Autodesk Plant 3D, and Aveva E3D Design.  AutoPIPE automatically determines the optimal pipe support locations to satisfy your design requirements with the most cost-effective solution, without sacrificing quality or safety. 

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

Capabilities
  • Analyze and visualize pipe stress

    • Provide confidence in the safety of your engineering designs with static and load sequencing nonlinear analysis. Perform analyses to examine different loading scenarios including thermal, seismic, wind, and dynamic load cases. 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.
  • Comply with industry codes and 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.​
  • Leverage Bentley's iTwin Services

    • AutoPIPE is integrated with Bentley's iTwin Services. It enables you to do more with the models you build. Each engineering analysis model that you develop can be used for collaboration, review, and exchange during the entire course of the project and beyond. Plus, the significantly value grows over time.
