How to import Material from one AutoPIPE library (ex. En13480) into a model that has a different material library (ex. B313-16)?
Each material library would have been created with the proper formatted columns of information to be used with a particular piping code. Therefore, when selecting the piping code, the default material library would have been been automatically defined. User are urged to use caution when selecting a material library for use with a particular piping code. If the selected material library does not have the correct formatted information the analysis results would be severely affected
Example: Modeling Piping code = ASME B31.3 - 2016, but user needs EN 13480 code material in the model.
question: Can the user just select any En 13480 material libraries (ie. EURO2002,EURO2009, EURO2012, etc..) from the general model options dialog?
a. Start two AutoPIPE sessions, one EN 1348 model in 1 session and in 2nd session open an ASME B31.3 model. In 2nd session, create a new NS material, copy the material properties from EN to B31.3 Non Standard material.
b. Update ASME library to include EN materials,
c. Change piping code from ASME B31.3 to EN 13480. If the user needs EN material then maybe better suited to use an EN code for analysis?
