Description

FEPipe is PRG’s complete and full-featured FEA package for the pressure vessel and piping engineer. Analyze individual or multi-component geometries to consider the interaction between multiple nozzles, saddles, clips, lugs, bends etc. using FEPipe’s standard templates and advanced modules. Post processing is a snap with ASME code output reports and interactive graphical results. The new drawing tools allow for easier design and editing of complicated modules.

What is included with FEPipe?

FEPipe includes a large let of standard templates that allows the user to build complex geometries by entering in basic data such as dimension, thickness, length, direction and angles. FEPipe allows the user to join together different models from different templates to create more complex systems.

SHELL MODULES

  • Unreinforced Fabricated Tee
  • Pad Reinforced Fabricated Tee
  • Hillside Tee
  • Welding Tee
  • Y-Fitting Tee
  • Bend with Staunchion
  • Tank Settlement
  • Low Tank Nozzle
  • Tangential Nozzle
  • Shell-To-Head Nozzle
  • Pipe Supports
  • String Modeler: string together a series of geometries to create mitered bends, annual plates, Conical sections, etc.
  • Nozzles / Plates / Shells: build complex geometries such as multiple nozzles on heads, stacked vessels, saddles, skirted vessels with lifting lugs and other supports.

BRICK MODULES

• Unreinforced Fabricated Tee

ADVANCED MODULES

These modules were designed to add increased ease-of-use & design for the most common analysis needs. All of these modules use the FEA engine from FEPipe to perform the high-level calculations and reporting. All of the following modules are included with FEPipe v10.0 as specialized templates.

• NozzlePRO
• AxiPRO
• MATPRO
• 661PRO

SERVICE PLAN MODULES

These modules were also designed to add increased ease-of-use & design for the most common analysis needs. Some of the STANDARD templates were converted to more simplified analysis tools. These modules are included with an active FEPipe v10.0 service plan.

• FE107
• FESIF
• FEBend
• FETee

• PCL-Gold Pipe Stress Program
• BOS B31
• Point Cloud Scanning
