In Wiki Errors section improve E514-2 description of"Why and How to Avoid"
Add to E514-2 error description found in AutoPIPE Wiki that when re-running Time History analyses using older models, Time History Profile (*.THP) files may need to be created by importing old (*.TIH) files.
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...

AutoPIPE's Node Annotations (Insert > Node Annotations) are not able to be printed on a Stress Isometric. Using the "save isometric drawning" prompt, we have the option to isert annotations (but it's not a good way to do it), and it's not relat...
I am planning to include non-nuclear fatigue in a future release. We already support ASME III NB method for nuclear and want to provide a general approach to be used with other design codes. I am looking for interest in the idea and any suggestion...

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...
As the complexity of stress models increase, with multiple load cases, seismic cases, input loads, static analysis sets, thermal cases, nonlinear analysis, etc, we have seen Autopipe lag significantly. One idea to improve the speed and performance...
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...

Output file should describe number of Warning/Error conditions encountered
Analysis quality will improve if AutoPIPE Output Report (SQO) describes the number of Warning/Error conditions encountered together with a recommendation to view .CHK, .DCHK, .ANL and any other Warning/Error files present. The lack of a recommenda...
Write as many Error messages as possible to *.ANL file
Currently Error messages appear on screen while interactively using AutoPIPE. If doing Batch processing Error messages never appear! If an Error message can be displayed on the screen it can also be written to the *.ANL file. Error conditions that...
