Softwares used in EPCI Project (3)

softwares used in epci2
Pipeline Softwares:
  • AutoPIPE for 3-D pipe stress analysis
  • AGA for stability analysis

Piping Stress Softwares:

Process piping is typically checked by Pipe Stress Engineers to verify that the routing, nozzle loads, hangers, and supports are properly placed and selected such that allowable pipe stress is not exceeded under different situations such as sustained, operating, pressure testing etc., as per the ASME B31, EN 13480 or any other applicable codes and standards.

It is necessary to evaluate the mechanical behaviour of the piping under regular loads (internal pressure and thermal stresses) as well under occasional and intermittent loading cases such as earthquake, high wind or special vibration, and water hammer. This evaluation is usually performed with the assistance of a specialized (finite element or beam theory) pipe stress analysis computer program such as:

Mechanical Softwares:

  • COMPRESS for design and rating of pressure vessel in accordance with ASME Sec. VIII div. 1

Electrical Softwares:

  • ETAP Powerstation for electrical calculation.
  • LUXICON for illumination calculation.
  • A phase and earth fault application tool for discrimination analysis.
Instrument Softwares:
  • INTOOLS for general database management software.
  • InstruCalc for orifice, control valve, and PSV calculation.
