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 12.08.01.010.

  • Piping Codes
    • Added ASME B31.3 2020 - Process Piping. This edition of B31.3 piping code mandates the use of ASME B31J for SIF and Flexibility calculations. A new option is now available in the Result Model Options that allows the use of ASME B31J Table 1.1 General Note (d) for sustained moment indices calculations. For branch connections, the use of effective section modulus (Ze) is now removed.
  • Reports
    • When importing an Aveva E3D pipe stress file, Tags (from Supports, Valves, and Flanges) and Attachment IDs (from Supports) are now supported.
    • Microsoft Word Report templates have been updated to improve overall quality.
    • General
      • A Model Explorer utility has been implemented to enable easier location of specific models. Search criteria and filter controls are also available.
      • The Tee Point dialog has been modified to automatically populate dynamic fields upon data entry.
