See nomenclature below for more information. WeightThis is the total weight of the Hinge joint assembly. This is how long you want to study system response. Manal S2 is associated with section 12B: Next, use the Generate command to create four additional branches, each starting withsay, and these node numbers could be any numbers.

Finally, connect piping atnodes caeepipe and 30 to beam nodes and using limit stops. This feature is useful when you are working with a two-monitor system.

Then, create the second beam support nodes to using theGenerate command under Edit menu in the Layout window. From the map above, seismic zone is 4; from the table above, corresponding coefficientis 1. Reducer of length mm between nodes and It is often used in place of a time-history analysis to determine the response ofthe piping system to sudden impulsive loads such as water hammer, relief valve and slugflow loads.

Table of Contents Technical Article: There are two methods here. This command can be useful when you are comparing the weight of this modelwith weight obtained from another source. This information cannot be modified in the Resultswindow however it can be printed in Results.

But, in cases where you need to account for structural flexibility,use the Beam element to model structural support systems alongside piping systems. The hanger is input at node 15, which is in the middle ofthe bend. Bourdon EffectBourdon effect is the tendency of straight pipes to elongate and bends to straighten dueto internal pressure.



On the other hand, the license caeepipe for the Product Key generated with network cable plugged-in can be used in unplug mqnual too. Usually, the core and the jacket pipes have the same bend radii. So, there is no need to retype the names of the jacketproperties every time you input a jacketed pipe. Input spectrums from a text fileThis method involves creating a separate text file in the format shown below for eachspectrum you want to input.

Once you have picked your choices, you can now begin installing or use the Back button toreturn to previous screens to change your choices. Each Hinge joint has the following data: The anchor is now released in the specified directions during hangerdesign.

There are two methods of computing the X, Y and Z components. Hanger replaces user hanger at node The details are shown graphically below. The interface duplicates and assigns the same node numbering for both core piping and the Jacketed Piping.

Context MenuRight-clicking anywhere inside this window displays the context menu. Graphics GraphicsSelect a font face and size to use inside the Graphics window. If the setup program fails to register the service automatically for any reason, then register the service manually as stated below. The anchor is restored to the original state of no releases after the preliminary hot loadcalculation during hanger design.

If multiplethermal load cases are specified only the first thermal load is used for this operating loadcase.

The average OD of the two sections is 8. The above window shows the layout for the starting point of the model. When you have a long sloping pipe, you can create one long element with the slope builtinto it and use the Split command to break it down into smaller elements.



Preferences command has three tabs – Backup, Fonts and Toolbar. The system is of welded construction. Ball joints are free to rotate about all three axes. If this modulus is not available, useaxial modulus. The system is of welded construction and has 2 spring hangers, 4 limit stops and 2 lateral restraints. If the checkbox is not checked, the hanger stiffness is not include in the analysis. S1, associated with pipe section 12A: Calculate the acceleration gs as 0.

Guide placed in the horizontal or skewed pipe will be transferred as two restraints orthogonal to pipe axis. Some of the items caepiep with a bend are shown below. PrinterOn this tab, you can customize your printer settings such as selecting a different printer,setting different margins, and the print font.

There are three types of displacements which can be specified: Creates a unique connection node with the available free number 1 to and writes the displacement details in the vectors 1 through 9 corresponding to CAEPIPE temperature T1 through T9. The pressure thrust area will impose a thrust load of: Majual Models and 2.

A flange may existon one or both sides of the bend. For example, the effect of a really heavy steam hammer couldlinger on for a minute, and your forcing function data could span only 8s seconds.

This is explicitly reported in the. The results are tabulated below for all the models. By default, a rigid anchor is entered i.
