CAESAR II

Pipe Stress Analysis with CAESAR II

 
 

Engineers looking to establish, expand or improve upon their pipe stress analysis services need look no further than the CAESAR II® software suite.

Widely accepted as the industry standard for pipe stress analysis, CAESAR II lets engineers build, assess and report on piping systems of any size or complexity in accordance with more than 35 international piping code standards.

Save time with CAESAR II

Reduced modelling time is a key benefit of CAESAR II. This ensures that you can fully focus on your stress analysis, and become more productive.

The software’s functionality includes List Input grids and lets you work straight from the 3D model. Handy right-click menus and a functional, fully customisable toolbar layout increase speed and efficiency, while Integration with CAD design packages lets you quickly import your models, reducing risk for errors and costly iteration time between CAD and Stress Analysis divisions.

Leading 3D graphics

Experience 3D model graphics with fast response times to model actions and intelligent refreshes. The graphics engine provides real-world representation for rigid components, supports and hangers, displacements, rotations, forces, and moments on the piping model.

Robust load case definitions

Your customized load case definitions can be imported or exported through an easy to use template. Select to bypass or exclude certain cases from your analysis to speed up analysis time and focus on the conditions of interest. Use the Group Edit view to make quick changes to multiple load cases at once. Use the List view for creating new load cases, filtering and sorting on columns. Automatic renumbering of load cases upon deletion of cases, with easy review of the impacts on combination cases.

Advanced reporting

In addition to the evaluation of a piping system’s response to thermal, deadweight, and pressure loads, CAESAR II analyzes the effects of wind, support settlement, seismic, and wave loads. Nonlinear effects such as support lift-off, gap closure, and friction are included. Select the proper springs for supporting systems with large vertical deflections. Analysis accounts for seismic second-degree flexibility and bends plasticization.

Finite element analysis

Access third-party tools for finite element analysis from the main menu, including free access to the recently published ASME B31J-2017 calculations for SIFs and K factors. Quickly send and translate through FEATools™, compare multiple file results, assess the sensitivity of model elements, and evaluate nozzle/branch connections with NozzlePRO™.

Powerful integration capabilities

CAESAR II offers robust interfacing with CAD-based software, such as CADWorx Plant and Intergraph Smart® suites, using established industry formats (such as PCF and Isogen®). This lets you bring in data from other systems, carry it on to integrating solutions after analysis, and track support details. Import structural models from software such as CADWorx Structure or GT STRUDL®, and account for structural stiffness in the analysis.

Comprehensive equipment analysis

Associate multiple load conditions and multiple types of equipment in the Equipment Manager, which has connectivity to load cases used in your piping analysis. Experience a user-friendly interface and comprehensive reports. Analyze your critical flanges and flange assemblies against the EN-1591 code standard using a similar easy-to use manager, which automates much of the detailed flange input.
