RF-PIPING Design Add-on Module for RFEM
Piping Design and Pipe Stress Analysis
The RF‑PIPING Design add‑on module performs piping designs. The program compares the existing pipe stresses with the allowable stresses according to ASME B31.1 and ASME B31.3.
Analysis in RF‑PIPING Design is based on the piping model in the RF‑PIPING module.
- Design according to ASME B31.1 and ASME B31.3
- Analysis of stresses due to sustained loads, sustained and occasional loads as well as due to thermal expansion
- Result documentation with tables and graphics in the RFEM printout report
Working with RF-PIPING Design
After modeling pipelines in RFEM using RF‑PIPING and defining loads as well as load and result combinations, you can carry out pipe stress analysis in the RF‑PIPING Design add‑on module.
It is necessary to select pipelines and the relevant loads as well as load or result combinations for piping design. The material library provides various materials conforming with the standard ASME B31.1 and B31.3.
After the calculation, the results are displayed in clearly arranged windows, for example by cross‑section, by pipeline, or by members. It is also possible to display the design ratio graphically on the entire model in RFEM. Thus, you can quickly recognize critical or over-sized areas.
In addition to input and result data including design details shown in tables, you can add any graphic into the printout report. In this way, a comprehensible and clearly arranged documentation is guaranteed. You can select the report contents and results extent specifically for the individual designs.
