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.

speed up the analysis of large model

large dimension model have a big problem in velocity, particulary with dinamic, for the very old architecture of the software. Some common ideas: multi core implementation (a must, in my opinion) 64bit use of library for graphic cards a benchmark ...

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.

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...

Improve reference loads dialog

Add a toggle between X/Y/Z and axial/shear/bending/torsion for forces and moments in the reference loads dialog. Many allowables for connections are given in terms of total shear load or bending moment. It is not possible to use the current refere...

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.
