Add-on Modules - Piping Systems
For Piping Analysis
RFEM provides the RF‑PIPING and RF‑PIPING Design add‑on modules for piping modeling and design.
Piping analysis can be performed for the entire structure that is in interaction with the support structure. This and consideration of the supporting structure flexibility in pipelines provides for realistic piping design.
The RF‑PIPING module is used for modeling pipelines 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 EN 13480‑3, ASME B31.1, and ASME B31.3.
