• jacketed pipe and stress reducing loops

    Hi all,

    I am a newly practicing junior engineer. I have been using AutoPIPE to model some drain piping that is jacketed (1" in 2" jacket and 3" in 6" jacket) Schedule 40.  It seems that I am needing a lot more expansion loops than others…

  • Range reduction factor f gone in new release for B31.3 and B31.1 piping

    With great pleasure, I started using the new release 09.04.00.19.
    It looks promising, some nice features.

    As Im running simulations on some cyclic service (i.e. thermal cycling) piping, the range reduction factor f option is important for me.
    I noticed…
