By default when we have pipe to pipe connection using Victaulic spec in Imperial project coupling is not placed. However, in case of pipe to elbow connection GROOVE_JOINT is created and CAM_AND_GROOVE_COUPLING is placed on the joint automatically. This article will explain what changes are required to configure the auto-placement of coupling on pipe to pipe connection.
100mm PIPE component has been taken as an example in this case.
Coupling is not placed automatically on the pipe to pipe connection because in Victaulic Spec, End conditions for PIPE in PIPE table are not defined and therefore PLAIN_END is assigned to both ends whereas groove joint requires IGM end conditions in order to place Cam and groove coupling. Follow the steps below to configure OPM to auto-place the coupling:
