Increase maximum number of static earthquake load cases.
When using nonlinear analysis earthquake loads cannot be scaled. If additional analysis sets are required with different earthquake accelerations for design purposes, it is severely limiting to have only 30 E cases. There are 100 analysis sets, it...
Use AutoPIPE valve weights when importing PCF files
When importing files (such as PCF's) please provide the option to use AutoPIPE valve weights rather than using the weights from the original design tool that created the PCF file. Essentially having the option to automatically enable the "valve wr...
There should be option to un-check B31J even if we use Ed.2020. This will help during anlaysis which comprises of both ASME Sec-1 & B31.1 pipes. Hence there should be an option to uncheck if not required. By default it should be “ticked” but i...

Will not implement
Response spectrum analysis is a static equivalent linear analysis to a dynamic earthquake event. AutoPIPE allows the use of V-Stops with gaps for static analysis. The condition of the gap closure and subsequent support loading is determined by eva...
Allow stresses from soils to be combined with other pipe stress loads in user defined combinations
Currently ring bending stresses in pipes from soil loads cannot be exported within a separate user-defined load combination (like gravity / thermal / poisson loads etc.) but has to be exported as part of a very specific pre-determined code combina...
