  • AutoPIPE
  • What is AutoPIPE?

    AutoPIPE is an intelligent analysis and design application built to calculate pipe stress, loads, and deflections under various load conditions. It offers various automation features and unmatched interoperability with other software applications.

    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 transferring the support reaction loads to STAAD.Pro. Analyze any static or dynamic loading condition applied to piping and structures, then 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 Advanced
  • What is AutoPIPE Advanced?

    AutoPIPE Advanced includes everything that is in the base version of AutoPIPE, plus it offers even faster analysis and optimization features.

    Advance Your Analysis Capabilities

    Expanding on AutoPIPE’s capabilities, AutoPIPE Advanced also includes a buried pipe with upheaval analysis and soil properties calculator, flange analysis to ASME VIII Division 1 and 2, force time history analysis, multiple response spectra analysis, harmonic, fluid transient analysis, stress isometric, seismic anchor motion (SAM), wave loading and buoyancy, and much more.

    Optimize Supports

    Improve efficiency and save time by using the machine learning Support Optimizer technology provided with AutoPIPE Advanced. Let the software use the power of all of your computer’s cores and evaluate thousands of possible support configurations against the design code requirements for the various system loadings.

    Comply with Industry Codes and Standards

    Ensure the safety of your projects across the power, process, nuclear, offshore, chemical, and oil and gas industries with global metallic and non-metallic piping design codes. The software incorporates major American (ASME), European (EN/ISO/DNV/BS), Canadian (CSA), and Japanese (JSME/KHK) piping codes, plus coverage for hydrogen pipelines and industrial piping with ASME B31.12.
