    Integrating piping designs

Piping and Pressure Vessel Design and Analysis Solution

Traditional workflows for mechanical design, stress analysis and detailing of piping systems and associated pressure vessels have been disconnected resulting in poor integration and interface management.

Quickly evaluate design options, and optimize your piping and pressure vessel layout using Bentley software. Integrate with other key disciplines in a single, unified modeling and analysis environment.

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. ​
  • 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, German, 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.
  • Design and model pressure vessels

    • Quickly design and model pressure vessels based on international design codes and local load methods. Optimize your flange design to minimize costs based on design codes, ensuring safe vessel design. Generate bills of material, detailed vessel drawings, and detailed parametric 3D solid models.​
  • 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.​
