Intergraph analysis solutions use the latest global design codes and standards to analyze stresses and other factors impacting piping systems, vessels, and tanks. This helps prevent substandard design, regulatory violations, and potentially catastrophic system failures. Such incidents could damage the environment and threaten lives.
With Intergraph analysis solutions, engineers and designers can also leverage the interoperability and unique focus associated with deploying integrated design and engineering solutions from a single-source innovator. Intergraph products are used continuously in real-world applications. This ensures they are consistent, dependable, and accurate in actual day-to-day use. You can rest assured that your Intergraph software investment will pay off for the long-term.
CAESAR II makes it easy to input and display all of the data needed to accurately define a piping system analysis model. Input can be accessed or modified on an element-by-element basis. Alternatively, datasets may be selected to make global changes.
PV Elite makes defining pressure boundary conditions for vessels and exchangers easy, even for load sets that require significant data input. PV Elite streamlines data entry by breaking the input down into sensible subsets. Help on any input item is only a keystroke away.
The menu-driven interface of TANK enables the quick definition of input and functions for the accurate analysis of oil storage tanks to American Petroleum Institute (API) standards.
Besides the evaluation of a piping system's response to thermal, deadweight, and pressure loads, CAESAR II analyzes the effects of wind, support settlement, seismic loads, and wave loads. Nonlinear effects such as support lift-off, gap closure, and friction are also included. CAESAR II selects the proper springs for supporting systems with large vertical deflections. Dynamic analysis capabilities include modal, harmonic, response spectrum, and time history analysis.
To simplify inspection requirements, PV Elite lists the most important equations, such as required thickness and maximum allowable working pressure (MAWP), and also groups results by type, such as internal pressure, external pressure, bending stress, nozzles, and flanges. An overall results summary identifies where the element or detail controls the overall vessel MAWP. PV Elite is a global package with international code rules plus extensive region-specific content. Vessel material definitions, piping and steel component data, local wind loads, and local seismic loads of many regional markets are all included.
TANK offers many databases, integral to the package. This makes it easy to select standard data for accurate analysis. A number of U.S. and international structural steel databases are provided.
