Analyze piping stress with this updated software

| By Chemical Engineering


Hexagon PPM

Caesar II 2018 (V. 10.0) is the newest version of this company’s software suite for pipe stress analysis and evaluating the structural responses and stresses of piping systems according to international codes and standards. In addition to the latest piping codes, Caesar II now supports a more robust analysis (compliant with KHK Level 2 standards) of the stability of a piping system during a serious seismic event, helping to ensure the safety of facility piping in earthquake-prone areas. The new version also offers the ability to identify and track supports throughout the software using new support and hanger-tag fields. When a user deletes a load case, the software automatically renumbers the remaining cases and indicates any impacts from the deletion to combination cases. In Caesar II, quick model changes are also possible with the Find & Replace option in the list inputs. — Hexagon PPM, Huntsville, Ala.
