AutoPIPE is a CAE (Computer-Aided Engineering) program created to design and test piping systems in varying locations: nuclear and fossil power, process and chemical plants, offshore FPSO platform and riser design, fire protection systems, oil refineries, cross-country gas and oil pipelines, FRP piping, building services, among others. AutoPIPE now incorporates over 25 different piping codes from ASME, British, European, German, Japanese, Chinese, API, NEMA, ANSI, ASCE, AISC, UBC, and WRC guidelines and design limits to provide a comprehensive analysis of the entire piping system. Bentley AutoPIPE can automatically transfer pipe support loads as well as import complete structures from STAAD.Pro, saving weeks of design time and providing safer, more realistic engineered designs.
AutoPIPE provides a comprehensive and advanced software tool specialized in pipe stress analysis. Basic analysis features include wind, snow and seismic loading. Advanced analysis features include integrated through-wall thermal gradient, fluid transient, thermal bowing, seismic response spectra, nonlinear hydrotest analysis, etc...
This program maintains the highest software quality with its internationally recognized nuclear QA (Quality Assurance) program to such standards as 10CFR Part 50, 10CFR 21, and ASME NQA-1-2008/2009a. Plus, it has a proven track record of 20+ years of independent nuclear audits.
