ASME NM.1 analysis for plastic pipes

ASME released ASME NM.1 for thermoplastic piping systems. It is handy for stress analysis of plastic pipes (PVC, CPVC, HDPE. PE, ...) compared to ASME B31.3. It will be beneficial if Autopipe includes this code as an option for analysis.

Add API 661 allowables to rotating equipment

Provide user ability to insert cooler nozzle allowables per API 661. This would help with cooler orientation and no longer require user to look up allowable values each time. Provide a multiplier allowable (i.e. 2x 3x API limits)

Reference point - nonsymmetric allowable

Reference point is great tool to verify connector capacity. Currently only symmetric allowable values could be used. Many times connectors allowable loads are nonsymmetric ex. range of values -80 to 0kN or -150 to 350kNm. See attached image. It wo...
