Stress Analysis

We use Stress Analysis software packages Caesar II and Autopipe to complete the stress and flexibility analysis of piping systems to recognised code requirements.Our analysis can include for both Static and Dynamic loading scenarios and the analysis can be completed to a variety of the latest international codes and standards such as ASME B31.3, ASME B31.1, ASME B31.4, ASME B31.8, BS EN 13480 and PD 8010.

Using stress analysis we are able to

  • Mitigate the effects of thermal and pressure expansion on the piping systems
  • Assess the effects of potential impact loads such as slug loads and water hammer
  • Capture potential support lift off scenarios
  • Determine piping reaction loadings onto equipment nozzles
  • Review nozzle loads for compliance with international codes / standards and any limitations imposed by the equipment manufacturer
  • Determine pipe support loads on Steelwork and Civil Structures
  • Confirm all Pipe Stresses will be below defined limits
  • Assess the effects of potential vibration sources such as wind and seismic
  • Define and create Variable and Constant Spring pipe support datasheets using a variety of supplier catalogs to suit client requirements
