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 following outline identifies new features and enhancements in the AutoPIPE CONNECT Edition version 12.06.00.48.

  • Piping Codes
    • Added ASCE 7 2016 - Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures - Wind and Earthquake.
    • Added ISO 14692 2017 - Petroleum and Natural Gas Industries - Glass-Reinforced Plastic (GRP) piping system design.
    • Soil Overburden Loads and Seismic Wave data has been extended to B31.8 and B31.12 Pipelines codes.

  • Reports
    • A Pipe Connectivity Report has been added to the SQLite Report Manager standard Text Input reports to provide detailed information about node point locations and connectivity.
    • The SQLite Report Manager now lists available reports alphabetically for easier selection.

  • Analysis
    • Added the P Delta displacement (pendulum) effect on Rod Hangers.  [Technology Preview ]
    • The setting of default analysis sets can now be defined to better control the resulting Code Combinations. Load case mapping has been added to cater to B31.3 and B31.1 occasional load calculations meeting 2018 requirements.
    • When using ASME B31.3 2010 or later, sustained stress is calculated as described in Code Case 178 to include torsion. This option (Result Model Options dialog) will now be disabled and checked when the 2010 or later edition of ASME B31.3 is selected.

  • Security Release Notes
