Bentley AutoPIPE

AutoPIPE from Bentley is a comprehensive design and analysis software. It specializes in tools that provide accurate pipe stress analysis. AutoPIPE reduces the cost and time to produce compliant piping and vessel designs for any plant environment, including nuclear plants. It ensures efficient workflow between pipe stress engineers, structural engineers, and CAD designers through interoperability with leading plant design applications. AutoPIPE saves time and reduces errors by importing piping models from common plant design applications to perform advanced pipe stress analysis. The software provides an intuitive interface and modelling environment that increases productivity and improves quality control. Its advanced analysis capabilities ensures faster and cost effective vessel designs with automatic workflows that include complete global codes and applied loadings. This standalone CAE software provides tools to calculate pipe stresses, perform flange analysis, pipe support design, and equipment nozzle loading analysis under static and dynamic loading conditions. It incorporates most of the piping standards that are required for industries across many countries.

Bentley AutoPIPe is meant to work with different industries, and is offered in different options as below:

  • AutoPIPE - The most basic AutoPIPE option including piping design and analysis AutoPIPE Advanced - Faster, more advanced and integrated pipe stress analysis including support optimizer feature
  • AutoPIPE Vessel - Design and analysis software for pressure vessels, heat exchangers, tanks, and air coolers
  • AutoPIPE Nuclear - Nuclear piping design and analysis software for critical safety pipe work to ASME Class 1, 2, or 3 standards.
