Intergraph® Process, Power & Marine Releases CAESAR II® 2017

Pipe stress analysis software now evaluates creep conditions, enables entry of custom nozzle stiffness, includes new model symbols and offers an improved display

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Aug. 25, 2016 — (PRNewswire) —  Intergraph® Process, Power & Marine (PP&M), part of Hexagon and the world's leading provider of enterprise engineering software to the process, power and marine industries, today announced CAESAR II® 2017 – the industry de facto standard for pipe stress analysis  – is now available commercially.

CAESAR II evaluates the structural responses and stresses of piping systems to international codes and standards. This 2017 version includes features that address many long-standing customer requests, as well as some significant industry code updates.  

Technical additions include the ability to evaluate creep conditions for all piping codes using EN-13480 guidelines, and a new dialog to specify custom nozzle stiffnesses from the piping input. The version features several interface and usability improvements, including model symbols to show displacements, rotations, forces and moments, and improved display of node numbers and axial stops in piping models.

An update to the 2016 Edition of the ASME B31.4 code for Liquid Pipelines is now included in CAESAR II. This update includes the depreciation of B31.11, which is now included in B31.4. Along with this large code update, the software now aids the analyst in evaluating pipelines even further by providing an option to either let the software determine the restrained or unrestrained state of the pipe elements automatically, or the ability to specify the state themselves.

Other code updates include support for:

  • 2015 edition of the Canadian code Z662 for Oil and Gas Pipelines
  • 2016 edition of API-560 for Fired Heaters
  • 2016 edition of the ASME B31.1 code for Power Piping
  • 2016 edition of the ASME B31.5 for Refrigeration Piping and Heat Transfer Components

"We are dedicated to providing our customers the highest quality tools that improve their workflows," said Rick Allen, president of Intergraph CADWorx® & Analysis Solutions. "CAESAR II now supports even more industry codes for our valued users around the globe. These highly requested features will make using the software more efficient and seamless."
