Top Reasons Engineering Managers Pick checkSTRESS
checkSTRESS is a unique solution to the old problem of project delays caused by "back and forth" piping layout iterations between the Design and Stress Engineering departments.
Simple and elegant, checkSTRESS' graphically intuitive interface helps the designer produce code-compliant piping layouts in the first iteration, dramatically reducing the project execution and the total elapsed time.
Under the checkSTRESS brand name, three products (for PDMS, CADMATIC, SmartPlant, AutoCAD Plant 3D, CATIA, and others) are available namely:
checkSTRESS (which generates input file for CAEPIPE)
checkSTRESS II (which generates input files for both CAEPIPE and CAESAR II) and
checkSTRESS Nuke (which generates input files for both CAEPIPE and PIPESTRESS).
Consider five designers working on a piping layout with one stress engineer validating their layouts. The engineer becomes the bottleneck; s/he simply cannot sign off on all the stress projects in a timely manner, what with having to do a "back-and-forth" design review with the five designers to first arrive at an acceptable layout before delving into the analysis details. The engineer spends most of his/her time working with the designers to first arrive at an acceptable layout, ONLY after which will s/he be able to attempt to get into the detailed analysis work.
RESULT: Less reliable piping systems due to hastily done analyses. Might lead to either a failure in the field or expensive redesigns and/or rework at site.
FINAL OUTCOME: Inevitable project delay.
With checkSTRESS, you get reliable systems without project delays. It makes perfect business sense.
Top Reasons Engineering Managers dataTRANSLATORS To CAEPIPE
PDMS to CAEPIPE
PDMS2KP™ the PDMS-to-CAEPIPE Interface, is a stand-alone program for transferring pipe geometry including section properties from AVEVA's Plant Design Management System (PDMS) to SST's Pipe Stress Analysis software CAEPIPE.
AutoPLANT to CAEPIPE
Transfers AutoPLANT piping data to CAEPIPE format.
This translator converts the extracted piping models from AutoPLANT into CAEPIPE models. Any missing design information can be potentially brought into CAEPIPE by modifying the .PCF file generation function in AutoPLANT (and, if needed, by modifying the Mapping DB files which are part of the translator software).
PCF to CAEPIPE (for AutoCAD Plant 3D, CADWorx, etc.)
PCF2KP™ translator program is a stand-alone program used for transferring pipe geometry, section properties and other engineering properties from Plant Design Software, (such as AutoCAD Plant 3D, CADWorx, etc.), to SST Systems Inc. Pipe Stress Analysis software CAEPIPE. Any missing design information can be potentially brought into CAEPIPE by modifying the .PCF file generation function in AutoPLANT (and, if needed, by modifying the Mapping DB files which are part of the translator software).

It is common practice worldwide that piping layout designers route pipes in 3D Plant Design systems with consideration given mainly to space constraints, process and flow constraints (such as pressure drop) and other requirements arising from constructability, operability and reparability. Most often, while routing piping systems, pipe stress requirements are not sufficiently considered.
In order to meet pipe stress requirements, pipe stress engineers have all along felt the following needs.
Need 1: Instead of creating pipe stress models by manually entering layout, pipe sizes and materials, supports, loads etc. in pipe stress software such as CAEPIPE, such stress models should be generated directly from 3D Plant Design systems.
Need 2: The layouts of the stress models so generated from 3D Plant Design systems should have already gone through first-level stress compliance checks performed by 3D piping designers, so that the piping layouts received by pipe stress engineers are already flexible enough to absorb expansion/contraction of pipes due to thermal loads.
Need 3: In addition to the traditional “clash checks” carried out on 3D plant model, piping designers should be able to check for “interference” when piping is deformed under “hot operating condition”.
Need 4: Immediate visualization of the 3D plant model while performing detailed analyses would immensely help pipe stress engineers to identify (a) all possible locations for pipe supports and (b) vacant space available in case re-routing of pipes is required.
Need 5: Piping designers should be able to import any layout changes made by stress engineers to 3D plant model as “reference geometry” for re-routing, and update pipe supports in 3D plant model by referring to finalized stress models.
SST Systems’ disruptive product CAEPIPE 3D+ fulfils all 5 Needs of pipe stress engineers as outlined in the respective features below.
Top Reasons Engineering Managers HOTclash.
HOTclash enables users to benefit immediately from the ability to avoid future lost revenue and productivity due to expensive repair costs culminating from a "shutdown" scenario stemming from problems that could have been detected beforehand using HOTclash. Increased reliability in system operation and enhanced safety are added benefits.
In order to comply with space constraints, piping designers check for interferences between piping and the adjacent structures, concrete buildings, equipment and reserve volumes for walkthrough, maintenance space etc. either manually on General Arrangement drawings or nowadays in a 3D Plant model. Unfortunately, such "Clash-check" is performed using only "as-designed" drawings/3D models. In reality, piping systems deform due to their own dead-weight during installed/shut-down condition, during hydrotest as well as during operating conditions. Clash-checks for piping systems under such "deformed conditions" are usually never performed.
HOTclash is an add-on software module to 3D Plant Design Systems (currently available only on PDMS and CADMATIC). HOTclash transfers "deformed shapes" for the piping system under three different loading conditions to the 3D Plant Design software, for
"Hydrotest" condition, and
The 3D Plant Design Software, in turn, could then check for interference under the above three loading conditions as well as under the traditional "as-designed" model condition.
HOTclash pinpoints areas where piping clashes with the nearby equipment, other piping systems, cable and duct trays, structural and concrete support structures, so that designer/engineer can take the list of clash points and take remedial design measures. HOTclash also reports clashes for the Operating and Shutdown conditions (post-installation operating condition as opposed to "as-designed" condition). So, you will be performing a "real-world" (hot) simulation BEFORE the system goes live.
Other software only perform a simplistic "in-place" clash check, and do not check for clashes in the operating and shutdown condition like HOTclash does. So, take all measures you can to avoid any probability of a "post-commissioning" shutdown and repairs. Give HOTclash a try. See how useful and important it will be in your design process.
