Add-on Modules - Piping Systems
RFEM provides the RF‑PIPING and RF‑PIPING Design add‑on modules for pipe modeling and design.
Analysis and design can be applied to all piping systems in addition to interaction with the supporting structure all in one program. This allows for quick adjustment of the elements considered as well as realistic structure to piping interaction.
The RF‑PIPING module is used for modeling piping systems and defining loads conforming to standards.
It is possible to define specific piping components such as valves, fittings, flanges, tees, expansion joints, and others, and consider them together with the supporting structure.
The RF‑PIPING Design add‑on module compares the existing pipe stresses with the allowable stresses according to ASME B31.1, ASME B31.3, and EN 13480‑3.
