Bentley AutoPIPE is a stand-alone computer aided engineering (CAE) program for the calculation of piping stresses, flange analysis, pipe support design, and equipment nozzle loading analysis under static and dynamic loading conditions. In addition to 30 piping codes, AutoPIPE incorporates ASME, European, British Standard, API, NEMA, ANSI, ASCE, AISC, UBC, and WRC guidelines and design limits to provide a comprehensive analysis of the entire system.

The commercial release of AutoPIPE CONNECT Edition Update 4 (v11.04.00.10) includes the following features:

Analysis

  • Flange Analysis
    • The allowable value for flange allowable stresses is now determined by the attached piping materials / piping code.
    • A warning is now issued when the calculated Bsc exceeds 1 and is not included in calculations.
    • An option has been added to substitute "B1" for the inside diameter of flange "B".
    • The flange analysis workflow has been updated to perform automatic ANSI checks for all flanges in the model.
    • External flange loads are now included in determining bolt stresses.

Library

  • The Vendor Valve catalogs are now certified for commercial consumption.

General

  • CONNECT Advisor is now fully integrated, including Contextual assistance, Expert Advisor, and the Ribbon command search utility.

Reports

  • A new check has been implemented to verify the selection of points before running a report that limits results to selected node points. 
  • Export SQLite DB input & output reports    [ Technology Preview ]
    • Users now have more power to create data reports with the information that is important to their teams with the new SQLite DB export capability and a custom report manager.
  • AutoPIPE Report Manager   [ Technology Preview ]
    • Use the query designer to create custom reports to excel with charts and pivot tables.
    • Generates detailed hanger listing reports to help purchase and installation of pipe support.
    • MS Word Report Writer now covers more reports and includes templates with screenshots.

Interoperability

  • Stress Isometrics with Open Plant Isometrics Manager (OPIM)
    • Separate support and anchor tags are now available to control the information to print on isometrics.
    • The default acronym for non-standard Pipe has been changed to avoid confusion with Nominal Pipe Size.
    • Read/write controls have been added to Integrated Structural Model (ISM) for better integration with Structural Analysis and Plant Design products.   [ Technology Preview ]
    • All Piping Codes and Material Libraries have been added to the PCF Translator.
