Presenter: Gary MacLeod, Cortex Engineering Software (Intergraph's Australian Global Network Partner), originally held on Thursday 6 November 2014.
Plant safety cannot be compromised, yet clients continue to demand cost savings and efficiencies in both design and implementation. This webinar demonstrates one of the most significant advances in pipe stress technology since the PC. It shows how using FEATools™ in conjunction with Intergraph® CAESAR II® can reduce expansion stresses and operating loads by 50 percent, or more.
FEATools is a finite element toolbox that harnesses the power of finite element analysis to produce more accurate stress intensification and stiffness factors at critical locations within the pipe stress model. FEATools reads the data within a CAESAR II file to automatically produce a finite element model of critical locations within the model. It will then analyse the FEA model, calculate stress intensification and stiffness factors for these critical locations, and create a far more accurate, CAESAR II model based on these values. The reduction in stresses and equipment loads in the more accurate model leads to significant savings in capital costs and design time.
