Pipelines are important investment for infrastructure, building and construction industry. Simulation based designs are taking prominent role in design, installation and final delivery of pipeline projects. The objective of this analysis is to check the pipelines of various industries for operating & occasional loads. The piping network are then designed, that can withstand these loads & forces. Purpose of analysis is to determine the stresses, deflection & forces in pipelines in design as well as operating condition. Based on analysis results, various design modifications like flexible connectors, rigid anchors, additional supports, spring hangers are suggested. Stress analysis is conducted to come up with innovative design solutions that meet international code compliances like IBC, UBC, BS, ASME, FEMA, API 618 and API 674. Design of structural steel supports for various piping systems are designed using FEM. These supports are designed using BS 5950 & ASCE.
Modeling & Analysis: The 3D modeling for the entire pipeline network with all the bends and runs along with initial support locations are captured and modeled using pipe stress analysis software Bentley-AutoPIPE.
