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...

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...

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.

Defining Concentrated force to the local axis of element

The inability to specify the concentrated force for the local element in Autopipe leads to numerous challenges when defining the slug force on a pipeline that is misaligned with the axis. In contrast to CAESAR, Autopipe lacks the capability to rot...

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.

Add Cut-shorts to View Settings/Scale Factors

Users cannot change the size of cut-short symbol. The cut-short symbol is drawn proportional to the pipe OD while in single line mode. It sometimes looks too big or too small.

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 ...
