Save time with CAESAR II Pipe Stress Analysis Software
For engineers looking to improve their efficiency and time management, CAESAR II is the ideal software solution.
The software includes functionalities such as List Input grids and lets you work straight from the 3D model, with right-click menus and a functional, fully customisable toolbar layout to increase speed and efficiency.
CAESAR II integrates seamlessly with CAD design packages and lets you import models quickly, reducing human error and costly iteration time between CAD and Stress Analysis divisions.
The handy features provided within the CAESAR II suite ensure you can fully focus on the stress analysis process and ultimately become more productive with reduced modelling time.
Leading 3D piping graphics
CAESAR II lets you experience 3D model graphics with fast response times to model actions and intelligent refreshes.
The world-class graphics engine provides real-world representation for rigid components, supports and hangers, displacements, rotations, forces, and moments on the piping model.
Customised and robust load case definitions
Quickly import or export your customised load case definitions through a super user-friendly 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 pipe stress reporting
Along with the ability to evaluate a piping system’s response to thermal, deadweight, and pressure loads, CAESAR II can analyse the effects of wind, support settlement, seismic, and wave loads.
Nonlinear effects such as support lift-off, gap closure, and friction are included in the capabilities. Select the proper springs for supporting systems with large vertical deflections. The analysis accounts for seismic second-degree flexibility and bends plasticization.
Support your pipe stress analysis with FEA
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 CAD 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 other 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.
Nuclear industry pipe stress compliance
CAESAR II complies with ASME NQA-1 quality assurance (QA). Subscribe to the CAESAR II QA and Reporting service to stay fully informed about issues and software changes. This notification service meets U.S. federal requirements 10 CFR Part 50 App. B. and 10 CFR Part 21.
