What Features and Piping codes are available in AutoPIPE Standard, Plus, or Nuclear?
What piping codes are available in AutoPIPE click the link here.
What options and codes are available in AutoPIPE STANDARD, Advanced, or Nuclear, please see the following AutoPIPE help section:
Help > Contents> Contents Tab> Bentley AutoPIPE> Getting Started> AutoPIPE V8i Standard vs Advanced vs Nuclear>
Here is a sample of the information available (example: AutoPIPE CONNECT 12.05.00.16):
1 Multiple code years are available in AutoPIPE Advanced and AutoPIPE Nuclear editions. AutoPIPE only supports latest code year.
2 Only Uniform Response Spectra and SRSS Combination method available in AutoPIPE edition.
3 NEMA 23 for turbines, API 617 for compressors, and API 610 for pumps.
4 KHK 2 add-on option is required to access this feature (available for AutoPIPE Advanced and AutoPIPE Nuclear editions).
5 For Hydrotest, we create a separate analysis set that produces the HYD load case from the Hydrotest properties settings. Both Linear and Non-Linear hydrotest.
6 Maximum number of load cases that can be analyzed in a single analysis set during a static analysis run in v9.1 or later.
= Gravity (1) + Thermal (20) + Pressure (20) + Static Earthquake (20) + Wind (10) + User (20)
= 91 cases for Advanced and Nuclear (26 for Basic). However, multiple analysis sets can be run in a single static analysis in v9.1 or later.
Since up to 100 different thermal loadings can be defined and analyzed in a single static analysis, only 20 thermal load cases can be used per analysis set. For example, when running 50 thermal cases, a minimum of three analysis sets are required. Since each analysis set can analyze up to 91 static cases, hundreds of loads can be analyzed with different scenarios, linear, non-linear, and hot or cold modulus in the same static analysis run.
CAE Integrated Analysis & Design Ancillary Products
PipeLink (Advanced structural model/piping data exchange with STAAD.Pro structural analysis)
AutoPIPE Nozzle (local stresses calculations at nozzle/vessel junctions per WRC 107/297/368, PD500, API650, and KHK)
PlantFlow (Network flow analysis)
Puls (Acoustic and pulsation simulations per API 618)
OpenPlant Isometrics Manager (Generate stress isometric drawings)
Note: Users can use OpenPlant Isometrics Manager (OPIM) to review Stress Isometrics created by AutoPIPE without an entitlement for OPIM, provided they are opened from within AutoPIPE. Direct use of OPIM without an entitlement will log usage and may lead to charges. Click here for more information.

Note: See AutoPIPE help for complete details - (image below taken from v.12.05.00.16)
If a particular piping code or edition is not available in your version, please see the Piping Codes Enhancements for AutoPIPE that have already been logged. If one is missing please log a Bentley Service Request asking that it be added to AutoPIPE.
Do I need to install AutoPIPE Standard, Advanced, & Nuclear on my computer?
