I would like to know if AutoPIPE calculates according to the EN 1998 codes which is needed for Bulgaria? or can I convert information between codes. please let me know since this is critical for the approval for the engineering.
AutoPIPE is able to model various Seismic Earthquake loads as mentioned above. With regards to the Static Seismic analysis feature, AutoPIPE V8i 09.06.00.xx has 5 different codes available:
ALA (ASCE 2002)
GB50011 - 2001
Mexican CFE 2008
As seen above, En1998 code is not a selection. However, the user can get the code values from another resource and enter them in as a "User" code type. See AutoPIPE online help for details on this feature.
The following enhancement has been logged (TFS-E97721: Add new Seismic code, EN 1998) to add this new seismic code to a future version of AutoPIPE.
