Pipe Stress Analysis Software Provides Up-to-Date Codes and Global Analysis Tools
Intergraph has released CAESAR II 2013 with new and extended capabilities, including an enhanced interface for SmartPlant 3-D model import/export; new Japanese interface, seismic code and spring hanger database capabilities; and updated ASME B31.3, B31.3, B31.8, B31.9 and Z662 codes. CAESAR II 2013 also provides improved model manipulation, editing and annotation capabilities and improvements to standardize development and testing to meet ASME NQA-1 requirements.
CAESAR II provides users with a customizable interface using Intergraph’s plant, offshore and material handling design solutions, SmartPlant 3D, SmartMarine 3D and SmartPlant 3D materials handling edition, collectively known as Smart 3D and SmartPlant Review. CAESAR II also provides seamless integration with CADWorx, Intergraph’s AutoCAD-based plant design solution.
These interfaces simplify import and export of pipe stress analysis results between CAESAR II and Smart 3D, SmartPlant Review or CADWorx for faster incorporation of analysis changes during a project design. This allows designers and engineers to share information seamlessly in a collaborative work environment.
