SST Updates CAEPIPE - Flagship Software for Pipe Stress Analysis on its 30th Anniversary
Pipe Stress Complexity Simplified — Again!
San Jose, CA, October 23, 2013 – Specializing in piping design and stress analysis software solutions and services, SST has introduced CAEPIPE v7.0 on its 30th anniversary—A major release with a wealth of new piping stress analysis features.
Known for its sleek and simple design, CAEPIPE now adds more power and flexibility to its already formidable processing engine. Imagine all these NEW features in addition to the standard statics, dynamics and piping code compliance:
- 10 Thermal
- 4 Wind Loads
- 2012 ANSI/ASME B31 and European EN Codes
- 95+ Load cases
- Expansion Stresses for 50+ thermal ranges
- Support Load Summary for 150+ load combinations
- Pump/Compressor/Turbine reports for 10 Operating cases, and
- Operating Stresses for nondestructive examination (NDE) purposes
"With its unrivaled simplicity, ease of use and speed, CAEPIPE provides serious productivity by cutting down the analysis complexity through its rich feature set, all in a 2MB executable!" says Vijay D., its Product Manager.
For 30 years now, CAEPIPE, the software for rapid and cost-effective pipe stress analysis of any complexity, has been used not only in traditional applications such as power generation, district heating, and petrochemical, but also on advanced fighter aircraft such as F-16s, F-18s, the Joint Strike fighter, the Space Shuttle and on the submarines. Using the optional translators, piping data can be imported from AutoCAD Plant 3D, CATIA, PDMS, PDS, SmartPlant 3D, ProCAD, CAESAR-II, Pipepak and many others.

SST INTRODUCES HOTclash FOR AVEVA’s PDMS PLANT DESIGN SOFTWARE - Industry’s First “Real World” Conditions Simulation Software Finds Pipe Clashes; Uses “Go Live” Analysis To Avoid Costly Shutdowns and Modifications
San Jose, CA – SST Systems, specializing in software solutions and services for piping design and analysis since 1983, has introduced HOTclash, the industry’s first “real world” conditions simulation software for PDMS (AVEVA’s 3D Plant Design software).
HOTclash helps plant owners/operators avoid costly post-commissioning repairs and shutdowns by simulating “real-world” conditions so PDMS can pinpoint pipe clash issues with adjacent equipment, cable and duct trays, structural and concrete support structures, and other piping systems.
“While the standard clash check feature amounts to just a ‘paper test,’ our HOTclash simulation is actually ‘hot,’ ” stated C. D. Vijay, SST’s Product Manager. “It transfers ‘deformed shapes’ for the piping system under three different loading conditions — Shut-down, Hydrotest and Operating — to PDMS, which in turn can check for interference under the above three loading conditions as well as under the traditional “as-designed” model condition. A company can avoid future lost revenue and productivity due to expensive repair costs arising from problems that could have been detected beforehand. Projects are safer. Startups are more confident.”
