BentleyÂ® AutoPIPE Nozzle is a stand-alone, engineering application used for calculating local stresses at nozzle/vessel junctions, trunnion attachment points, clip connections and lug attachments on the vessel shell. Based on well-known engineering design standards like WRC, KHK, API and PD, AutoPIPE Nozzle helps engineers and designers quickly determine whether or not the wall of a pressure vessel, exchanger or tank can withstand piping loads on the nozzle or at clip and lug connections.

Before you install any software, you should confirm that you have adequate hardware and software capabilities to install and use the product.
To download the products, create a MySELECT CD or to complete the licensing process, you must have the appropriate roles assigned by your Site Administrator. If you have not been assigned these roles you will need to obtain the name of your Site Administrator from the Bentley website at SELECTservices Online at http://selectservices.bentley.com. Select MySupport Account / Permissions. Clicking on the List SELECTservices Administration button will access the Site Administrator at your company enabling you to request that the appropriate permissions be added to your profile.
With the appropriate privileges you can obtain the software as an electronic file from Web Downloads or the products may be ordered on a personal CD through MySELECT CD. Once you have installed the product you can run it from START | Programs | Bentley Engineering | AutoPIPE Nozzle V8i.
Network drives are not supported for the software and data files.
AutoPIPE Nozzle software must be installed on a local client workstation.
AutoPIPE Nozzle data files (*.NOZ) must have full read/write access and can only be accessed from a local client workstation.
AutoPIPE Nozzle Full License is supported on the SELECT Server Licensing. If you are upgrading from an earlier version of the product (Bentley WinNOZL), it is highly recommended that you do not install this product over the previous version. Older versions of will run under SELECT Server XM Licensing using the SELECT Server XM Gateway Service and the older SELECT licenses. For more information on the SELECT Server XM Gateway Service see Quickstart Licensing.
AutoPIPE Nozzle can be authorized as Standalone Licenses (formerly called Fixed Licenses), fixed to one user workstation or as Concurrent Licenses (formerly known as Floating Licenses) running from a local or Bentley hosted SELECT Server.
If you are upgrading an existing installation to run on one workstation, and you have License Tool privileges you can obtain a license file to complete the authorization process. Access the License Tool at http://selectservices.bentley.com/ from My Support Account menu located on the left. Once you complete your request you will receive an email including a License File with instructions for completing the process.
Concurrent Licenses (formerly known as Floating Licenses) are now managed through Bentley SELECT Server, a benefit of Bentley SELECT. Using SELECT Server requires a valid Bentley Serial Number, site server name and activation code to authorize the application. The Serial Number you received when you purchased the application is used to obtain a License File to complete the authorization process. For more licensing information see Quickstart Licensing.
Important: A signed SELECT agreement must be on file in order to convert your licenses from Floating Licensing to Concurrent Licensing.
Users who have existing Floating Licenses and wish to convert the licenses to run on SELECT Server can contact Bentley Sales Support Center from the website at http://www.bentley.com/en-US/Services/Bentley+Sales+Support.htm. The following information is required when requesting SELECT Server licensing: Server Name, email address of the recipient of the SELECT Server license and the Serial Numbers to be added to the server.
Detailed feature information may be accessed directly from the calling application by selecting the Help command, or by pressing the Help button from any of the application dialogs. Be sure to explore the program Help for answers to your questions.
Documentation for AutoPIPE Nozzle applications is provided online in the CHM format. These files are accessible from the Help Menu and can be browsed, searched, or printed.
AutoPIPE Nozzle Quick Start guide is a PDF which can be browsed, searched, or printed with the Adobe Acrobat Reader.Information and how to download a FREE copy of the Adobe Acrobat Reader can be obtained from http://www.adobe.com/.
It is highly recommended that you obtain the latest version of the Adobe Acrobat Reader.
