Program Help: 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. A set of supplemental How To, Tutorial, and Reference Information documents in PDF format are provided in the Supplemental Documentation folder (Bentley AutoPIPE > Supplemental Information) of the main Program Help file (autopipe.chm).
Tutorials: Documentation for AutoPIPE applications is provided online in the Adobe.pdf format. These files are accessible from the Help Menu. All documents 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.
AutoPIPE Advanced includes all codes available in AutoPIPE Standard, as well as the following codes.
AutoPIPE Nuclear includes all codes available in AutoPIPE Standard and AutoPIPE Advanced, as well as the following codes.
Subscription Entitlement Service is Bentley's new licensing model, providing enhanced security and optimized value for your Bentley Subscriptions. It is integrated with Bentley's Identity Management System (IMS) and the Bentley CONNECT technology platform to allow near real-time reporting of usage, improved alert messaging to users and increased administrative capabilities to license administrators in your organization. It will not only give you more options to monitor and manage usage but also provide new, advanced licensing features that will enhance digital workflows.
With Subscription Entitlement Service, all users must be registered with Bentley's Identity Management System (IMS) and sign in to the CONNECTION Client to access Bentley applications. Product activation will now occur through user sign-in to the CONNECTION Client with a valid IMS ID associated with their account. User sign-in will replace traditional activation keys, offering enhanced security as administrators will be able to control which users have access to Bentley software. License entitlements are granted and maintained through Subscription Entitlement Service's Entitlement Management Service. By signing into the CONNECTION Client users can also find their organization's projects, download software updates, receive relevant notifications, and track their usage.
Subscription Entitlement Service features the new license alerts notifications that can be set by an organization's license administrators to let the users know when they reach a set usage threshold. These notifications will alert the users that if they continue to use the product, a term license may be issued. The user in such a situation has the choice to quit the application before a license is used or acknowledge that a term license may be generated and proceed with starting the application, based on what settings the administrator chooses.
The following outline identifies all major errors fixed in Release of AutoPIPE v12.1.
Flanges that are inserted on a segment junction/continuation* point may incorrectly use zero values for external forces and moments for the Load Combination selected in the Flange Check module. This results in stress values that does not include the effect of external forces and moments, leading to unconservative results.
Interactive results dialog may not update to represent the correct results while navigating through interactive results e.g. result > code stress results. The avoidance is to use the batch report or result grid to review the results.
Some pipe materials are using incorrect values of allowable stress, thermal expansion , ultimate strength and/or modulus of elasticity. Using these pipe materials may result in incorrect calculated stress. The calculated stress values may be conservative than the actual stress values. The impacted materials are listed below
Allowable Stress :
- A106-A is not using correct values @800 for ASME B31.1 2016 to B31.1 2012
- A376-TP347 is not using correct values @800 for ASME B31.1 1986
Young Modulus :
- ST, AU, AU-TYPE 317 & AU-TYPE 348 are not using correct values @ -100, 200, 400, 500, 1100, 1300 for ASME B31.1 2016 to B31.1 2012
- MO is not using correct values @ 200, 300, 600, 700, 900, 1000 for ASME B31.1 2016 to B31.1 2012
- CN is not using correct values @ -100 for ASME B31.1 2016 to B31.1 2012
Thermal Expansion :
- CU is not using correct value @550 for ASME B31.1 2009 to B31.1 2005
- ST & AU-TYPE 310 are not using correct values @ All temperatures for ASME B31.1 1986
- A335-P92 & C12200-B88 are not using correct values for ASME B31.1 2016 to B31.1 2007
- A335-P92_N+T is not using correct values for ASME B31.1 2016 to B31.1 2007
- AU-TYPE 304, AU-TYPE 309, AU-TYPE 310, AU-TYPE 316, AU-TYPE 321, AU-TYPE 347 data removed @1500 for ASME B31.1 2016 to B31.1 2012
- NI-CR-MO data removed above 800 for ASME B31.1 2010 to B31.1 2004
For ISO 14692 piping code, virtual soil points on components other than bends use the joint properties defined for the previous physical point. Also, virtual soil points use allowable stress equations defined for joints instead of allowable equations defined for straight run.
