Does AutoPIPE calculate the required pipe wall thickness?
At this time, April 2019, AutoPIPE does not calculate the required pipe wall thickness. The user must enter the pipe properties on the dialog.
The program then uses these values in calculating the stresses and loads in the modeled piping system given the pipe arrangement, support system, and various loads entered. After reviewing the results grids and / or output reported values, the user can determine if additional changes are needed.
No changes to the model are automatically done. The user must make changes to the model manually.
