FEPipe v15.0 has been designed to meet the specific needs of the pressure vessel and piping industries.
The ability to rapidly construct PV&P geometries and automatically produce ASME stress reports sets us apart. Results are presented in terms of ASME requirements instead of generalized stress results.
FEPipe’s use of the parametric approach allows novice finite element analysts to construct accurate models using only dimensional input. FEPipe automatically creates the model geometry, element mesh, applied loads and boundary conditions based on standard dimensions. The user retains the ability to further edit the model via the Drawing Tools editor.
FEPipe v15.0 users have access to NozzlePRO v15.0 and FEATools v15.0.
NozzlePRO is a standalone solution that enables users to quickly and easily perform Finite Element Analysis (FEA) of individual pressure vessel and piping components, without an extensive knowledge of FEA modeling, analysis techniques or theory.
Analysis options include High Frequency, Flaw Detection, API 579 Fitness for Service, and Nonlinear Analysis.
FEATools v15.0 transforms your piping model (CAESAR II and PCL-Gold) by including upgraded branch connections (with the addition of rigid elements and restraints) to better simulate real-world displacement and forces. The FEA-based calculations provide the necessary k-factors, SSIs and SIFs that will be added to every branch connection.
