Support Detail Fig # and Allowable Support Load Ratings

Ensuring support info (gaps, friction, stiffness) is correct and reviewing support results are some of the more time consuming tasks. It would be very handy to be able to set up a library of support detail figure numbers with allowable load ratings.

Reference Loads - Results Database

Currently, AutoPIPE does not have the option to export reference loads to a .mdb file. I want to be able to easily compare the Reference Loads to their allowable. This is most handy when you have radial nozzles. Please include the allowable loads ...

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.

When exporting a model, the user should have the ability to select which nodes are exported based on the type of element it represents.

When creating stress isometric drawings, my team typically exports a .dxf file of the AutoPIPE Model. We are only concerned with nodes that represent support locations, however, there is no option to export only support nodes. Having this option a...

Extract system Response Spectra at decoupled connection points

The capability of producing FRS at some points is sometimes needed to analyze small bore branches. Generally, the small bore branches could be decoupled from the headers for seismic analysis, but these lines shall be evaluated separately using the...

Dynamic interface between Autopipe and Openplant

Currently, the interface between Autopipe and Openplant is disconnected. Users have to manually export piping models to Autopipe, and perform analysis. If changes need to happen in one model, the other model isnt't updated dynamically. Further, th...

ASME Flange Summary to show both Operating and Seating in separate columns

Currently the results summary will show the worst case for the flange. ASME B16.5 flanges combined with spiral wound gaskets will commonly fail the seating condition check with the ASME division 1 checks. This can be ignored provided the operating...

Increase tag length or remove the restriction altogether (like Caesar II)

The current max length of tags is 36 characters. Tag is meanwhile just about the only play where we can save some element-specific information. For example in the case of a Support I would like to save AT LEAST the following:1) The designation of ...

Evaluate ASME B16.5/47 flanges per ASME BPVC VIII-1 UG-44(b)

ASME B31.3-2022 F312 FLANGED JOINTS suggests using UG-44(b) "for qualifying piping external loadings on welding neck flanges". UG-44(b) is a modification of the very conservative equivalent pressure method.
