Frequently Asked Questions
AutoPIPE is an analysis and design application used to calculate piping stresses, loads, and deflections under static and dynamic load conditions.
AutoPIPE is a common pipe stress design and analysis software known for its intuitiveness. Not only is it affordable and reliable, but it offers customizable reporting, automated support structure optimization, and makes it easy to import and export various file formats such as CAESAR II files to save time and eliminate errors. AutoPIPE is offered in various versions so you can choose which version is best for you.
AutoPIPE offers machine learning support optimization saving hundreds of design hours. It also offers buried pipeline design and analysis capabilities, with 3D hot clash interference detection. Advanced interoperability allows you to import structural models from applications like SACS for offshore projects or structural analysis applications like STAAD so it’s easy to include the structural steel flexibilities in the pipe model. Structural and piping engineers work more efficiently together reducing risks and non-conformances. AutoPIPE includes support for many international design codes including ASME B31 J, as well as ASME III Nuclear codes for class 1, 2, and 3 piping. (Available in AutoPIPE Nuclear sold by Bentley directly.)
AutoPIPE has full interoperability between OpenPlant, STAAD, SACS, or third party products like CAESAR, SmartPlant, PDMS, or PDS. This allows the pipe design to be automatically imported into the pipe stress analysis program through a PXF file, PCF file, or similar. Advanced mapping ensures piping geometry, pipe properties, material, component class, support data and more are imported correctly. This workflow allows the piping to be modeled just once, increasing efficiency and eliminating manual errors.
Over 30 international design codes are supported including multiple years of ASME III, B31.1, B31.3, B31.4, B31.8, EN13480, CSA-Z662, ISO14692, DNV F101, ASME B31 J. AutoPIPE is one of the few pipestress analysis programs that adheres to the strictest international quality standards, including ISO 9001, NQA-1, 10CFR50 and approved by NIAC, NUPIC since 1986.
The price of AutoPIPE and AutoPIPE Advanced varies per region. While there are various types of licensing available a common choice is the 12-month practitioner license offered through Bentley’s eStore, and it comes in the form of a Virtuoso Subscription which means you get both the software AND training, expert services, and custom mentoring.
