Wind load acc. to EN 1991-1-4 (Wind)

In the European Union we design wind loads acc. to EN 1991-1-4 (Wind), hence it would be nice if wind loads are implemented as in other pipe stress analysis programs.

Enable different ambient temperatures for each thermal case

There is often need to calculate two conservative thermal combinations (lowest possible assembly temperature with highest working temperature and highest assembly temperature with lowest working temperature). Now it is needed to prepare two models...

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...

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.

Bolt Pre Tension

Possibility to declare bolt pre tension (eg, 40% or 50% of bolt SMYS) has to be provided in the Flange check.

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...

Update Materials List & Temp Range to reflect that of the code (B31.3)- Specifically N08811

If the material is listed in the code (B31.3) shouldn't it be in list of materials in the software and also have the same temperature range

Ring Tool - Ability to define Branch Type for each projection angle

Currently, the Ring Tool is limited to apply all Run Branch types or all Tee Branch Types. Why doesn't the tool allow the user to independently define which nodes need to be tees or runs? See attached screenshot for details.

Ring Tool - Ability to modify angles in the Ring Tool dialog

When a user defines custom projections in the Ring Tool dialog, and then realizes they need to add an additional angle, it is not possible. The current method requires the user to clear out the custom angles defined and reenter the custom defined ...

Add Node Annotations to stress isometric

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...
