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...

Add API 661 allowables to rotating equipment

Provide user ability to insert cooler nozzle allowables per API 661. This would help with cooler orientation and no longer require user to look up allowable values each time. Provide a multiplier allowable (i.e. 2x 3x API limits)

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...

Add a toggle button in segments grid to apply a transparency visual plot

Working with existing or future segments in large systems, it would be great to have a option to change their segments plot (like adding transparency). Something similar to older software like Triflex (see attached image).

Add Victaulic fitting

AutoPIPE can model a Victaulic fitting using a number of approach mentioned here . However this is a very difficult and demanding process. Not to mention, that in some case there are converging issues related to multiple Flexible joints on connect...

Turn off wind in 1 or more directions for segement

In some cases pipes are shielded from wind from walls etc, it would be helpful to be able to turn the wind off in that direction, on that segment, Currently you can only turn off all of the wind loads on a segment

Flange Ansi check as per UG-44: setting a user ratio for each rating

Ansi/kellogs method is a widely used way to check flange joint, but different standard, or client specification could use different allowable. Now the ASME BPVC VII UG-44 suggest 2.2 for B16.5 #150 and 1.5 for most of the others; DNV suggested 1.5...

Allow load combination re-sorting or insert

In the load combination options, users can custom define loads. The combination ordering is specific to the entries - the rows at the bottom can use previous combinations above, but not v/v. AutoPIPE generates an error if a load case tries to refe...
