CAEPIPE Analysis

CAEPIPE performs linear and non-linear static and dynamic analyses of 3D piping systems using optimized, tested and verified solution algorithms using some of the most advanced programming methods available. Below, you will find a sampling of the types of analyses you can do with CAEPIPE.

Types of Loads

  • Weight (deadweight and extra unit weight) and multiple pressures
  • Multiple temperatures
  • Combinations of weight, pressure and temperature
  • External forces and moments
  • Thermal anchor movements
  • Seismic anchor movements
  • Static seismic acceleration (g-load)
  • Non-repeated anchor movement
  • Seismic response spectra
  • Force spectra
  • Harmonic loads
  • Time history loads

Seismic Response Spectrum Analysis

    Support for Multiple Spectra Types

  • Frequency (or period) versus Displacement
  • Frequency (or period) versus Velocity
  • Frequency (or period) versus Acceleration

  • Linear or logarithmic interpolation

    Multiple units supported

    Spectra can be entered interactively or through a text file

Time History Analysis

    Time functions can be input inside CAEPIPE or imported from a text file

Harmonic Analysis

Buried Piping Analysis

Force Spectrum Analysis

    Force spectra functions can be input inside CAEPIPE or imported from a text file or can convert existing time functions into force functions.
