Capabilities
  • Analyze and simulate stress

    • ​Import, analyze, and report stress results from piping and structural design data. Visualize pipe stress analysis results graphically for hot and cold operating conditions. Improve overall engineering design integrity, quality, and design code compliance.
  • Conduct 3D interference analysis

    • Increase accuracy with automatic clash detection across 3D piping, structure, equipment, electrical, and HVAC. Use Bentley Navigator to review clash detection and solve clashes prior to construction. 
  • Design plant electrical systems

    • ​Employ intelligent schematics to increase the speed and quality of your plant electrical system design. Perform 3D electrical layout against 3D plant models referenced from common plant design products. Integrate Promis.e with OpenPlant to synchronize electrical data across the entire plant project.
  • Design plant instrumentation systems

    • ​Design and model plant instrumentation systems integrated with piping and mechanical process equipment designs. Utilize schematic data during design for inline instrumentation devices. Increase overall design quality and integrity of plant instrumentation systems.
  • Manage and resolve 3D interferences

    • ​Perform 3D interference analysis between multi-discipline 3D design models. Define interference rules to reduce false clash results. Manage and resolve clash results interactively. Improve the overall design integrity of multi-discipline 3D designs.
  • Model brownfield plants with point clouds

    • ​Capture and analyze existing plant condition data to support brownfield projects. Use laser-scanned point-cloud data in context during detailed 3D modeling and design. Perform 3D interference checking with existing condition data. Improve the overall integrity and quality of brownfield projects.
  • Perform multi-discipline plant design

    • ​Integrate plant design disciplines to produce high integrity multi-discipline plant models. Utilize interactive 3D design for your civil, structural, mechanical equipment, piping electrical raceway, and HVAC plant systems. You can combine physical plant design with schematic design allowing you to make comparisons between 2D and 3D plant models. Produce detailed material take-off reports for all plant commodities.
  • Reference structural model for pipe stress analysis

    • Reuse design data by creating a structural model in STAAD.Pro 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 model.​
