    Hi Sean, we shipped the calculation part as a separate module in v23.00.01 that you can use while we complete the UI.

    To get started with the EN 1591 solver, you can use the user reference manual at the following default location of installed version of AutoPIPE:

    C:\Program Files\Bentley\AutoPIPE 2023\Documents\EN 1591 Flange Analysis User Reference.pdf

    The User Reference is a complete guide describing the use of the solver and the schema for input database. The User Reference also includes a Quick Start section on how to run the example model provided with AutoPIPE installation. Some other folders are listed below:

    EN 1591 Solver Executable: C:\Program Files\Bentley\AutoPIPE 2023\apanalysis.exe

    EN 1591 Example Database: C:\Program Files\Bentley\AutoPIPE 2023\Examples\modelexample.ENFLG

    The status of this idea changed twice last week; initially, it moved to "Planned", now it says" Shipped". What does "Shipped" mean?

    This is not likely to be complete until AutoPIPE 2024 release. This is the hope!

    Hi Phil, do you have any updates on this? It would be highly valuable.

    Is there any updates on the development of this feature? Last update was 1.5 years ago. Annex G is very complicated but this seems to be a highly popular addition.

    Thanks you for your idea.

    This is already in development. We have the engineering complete and now need to design the UI. Planned for the next release of AutoPIPE

1 MERGED

Add the function of flange check based on code EN-1591.

Merged
It would provide a more reasonable analysis result for flange check compared with those too much conservative methods such as Equivalent Pressure Evaluation.
