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.

Defining Concentrated force to the local axis of element

The inability to specify the concentrated force for the local element in Autopipe leads to numerous challenges when defining the slug force on a pipeline that is misaligned with the axis. In contrast to CAESAR, Autopipe lacks the capability to rot...

Flange Analysis - report Axial force and Bending moment values

Currently the Flange Analysis output report does not print the Axial force and Bending moment input values used in the calculations. Suggest output report subsection " 1.5 PRESSURE & TEMPERATURE LOADS:" be renamed to "1.5 Load" and expanded to...

Insert 2 node points when a flange is inserted, to allow the user to set the BW SIF

By default, when you insert a WN or Lap Joint flange in Autopipe, it does not account for SIF at the BW joint. User has to enter an additional node point at a flange length and define a Joint Type with a defined offset. This could be automated.
