SiPlant is an integrated engineering software product for analysis and design of piping systems and frame structures, including piping code compliance checks with stress-intensification and flexibility factors that are automatically calculated and applied.
Using piping objects, pipe support types, and modeling approaches familiar to piping and structural engineers in the process and power industries, CSiPlant offers an easy-to-use, intelligent, object-based graphical interface utilizing customizable libraries of piping components and supports, temperature-dependent material properties, and libraries of piping and structural frame sections.I ncluded are comprehensive piping code compliance checks where stress intensification and flexibility factors are automatically applied per selected design codes. Options to import detailed structural analysis models, and then auto-connect the structure to piping supports, allows for the rapid and accurate modeling of systems for coupled nonlinear analysis.
Using CSi’s innovative solvers, element formulations, and analysis capabilities, coupled with a comprehensive and easy-to-use modeling environment, CSiPlant provides a state-of-the-art package for piping and structural engineers working in the process & power industries.
