Reporting Improvements

Above is an example of the chart that the AutoPIPE Report Manager can create. This chart was created using a filter to show any node that has a Y-axis displacement of greater than or equal to 1. This chart feature builds off of previous data filtering capabilities.

The AutoPIPE Report Manager can also create a pivot table to add more options to manage post processing for analytical models.

The General Stress results have been added to the Results Grids which also allows the results to be exported to an MDB file for post processing needs.

This enhancement is an output report code compliance formatting update. ISO 14692 evaluates each load combination via two types of stress equations: Hoop and Axial. AutoPIPE provides the maximum stress between the two. Users requested that Bentley introduce the original stresses for Hoop and Axial into the reporting for completeness. Note that for the new format, a carrot was added to the end of the stress type that produced the highest stress ratio for that load combination.
