Note: if an enhancement / defect has not been added to the program, log an Bentley Service Request. The more requests logged per an item, the quicker the development team will add that feature to the program.
Add option for user to select material library with high temperature values
Tube Material properties (ex. SA213Gr11 in 540 C) values in the code appear in italic, meaning it is up to the users to use them in such high temperature.
Add option for user to selective use these higher temperature referenced values without having to up date the material stress properties manually.
Manually enter material stress values.

Material Database Issues ASME VIII 2015 update
The material database has been wrongly updated for the ASME VIII 2015.
For some materials, Sm and S have been confused (used for division 2 and not used in APV). Then the update has to be reverted for these materials (bolting - stainless steel):- SA193GRB8CL1 - SA193GRB8CL2- SA193GRB8MCL1- SA193GRB8MCL2- SA193GRB8TCL1- SA193GRB8TCL2- SB164-N04400-Annealed- SB164-N04400-hot W-1- SB164-N04400-hot W-2- SB164-N04405-Annealed- SB164-N04405-Hot worked
Some upper limits have been updated for the following (plates - aluminum):- SB211-A96061-T6- SB211-A96061-T6wld- SB209-A95083-H112- SB209-A96061-T6wld- SB209-Alclad 6061-T6wld
A suggested workaround is to manually update the missing material properties in the database.
