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...

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 ...

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 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.
