User .DFL file as seed file for project specification

AutoPIPE currently provides a default setting file that can be used to control how a new model is created. We want to expand this to include most options, settings and material information, make it shareable and use it as a seed file. Would this b...

Total Length of Pipe

Once pipe properties are assigned to a run, the total length of the run with that property is calculated. For example I have 3 runs, a 2ft run, 4 ft run and 2 ft run. I assigned the property of A335P11 to the 2ft runs and SS36 to the 4ft run. Auto...

Snow loading acc. to EN 1991-1-3 (Snow)

In the European Union we design acc. to EN 1991-1-3 (Snow), hence it would be nice if snow load are implemented as in other pipe stress analysis programs.

Add label box for flexible joints

It would be helpful if flexible joints could have a label or tag added. This would be similar to how many components in AutoPIPE have the ability to label components, such as supports and anchors.

Flexible Joint Step Function Stiffness

Looking for an update to flex coupling input box to better model flexible coupling behavior. Flexible joint additional inputs (see attached) 1) Max angle of deflection for flex joint 2) Two stiffness inputs for bending stiffness. Stiffness changes...

Allow user to set the 6 color stress plot ranges as needed

While looking at the Color Stress plot there is a Key in the top left corner with 6 colors and corresponding ranges. These ranges are hard coded into the program. Give the user the options to set these 6 ranges as needed.

Increase allowable number of internal data points from 10,000 to 100,000 or more

AutoPIPE's analysis is blocked if total number of points (piping points+ soil points + frame nodes) is greater than 10,000. Suggest to increase the limit number of node points from 10,000 to 100,000 or more.

Apply joint efficiency factor to ASME B31.1 Expansion allowable

As an example, ASME B31.1 (2020) - section "102.3.2 Limits for Sustained Stresses and Displacement Stress Ranges" - para (b) Displacement Stresses provides the equation 1A for calculation of allowable stress range. Review the definition of Sc and ...

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...
