CAESAR II 2016 Released

Intergraph has just released CAESAR II 2016. The latest version offers support for recent code standards along with productivity updates that makes piping analysis faster and easier.
 
CAESAR II is the industry de facto standard for pipe stress analysis. It evaluates the structural responses and stresses of piping systems to international codes and standards. 

“This new release of CAESAR II affirms our dedication to customers’ ease of use and reliability,” said Rick Allen, president, Intergraph CADWorx & Analysis Solutions. “CAESAR II already offered a wide array of international codes, and this latest release delivers even more end-user value by offering even more of the piping, wind, seismic and equipment codes, which users around the globe have been requesting.”

Patrick Holcomb, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine executive vice president of global business development and marketing, said, “CAESAR II is known for its technical superiority, flexibility and innovation. As a valuable member of the Intergraph portfolio, the new version offers our EPC and owner operator customers an enhanced solution to help them improve operational safety and data quality while reducing costs.”

CAESAR II can leverage FEATools, from Paulin Research Group (PRG), to add finite element analysis capabilities to users’ CAESAR II jobs, to include more accurate stress intensification factors (SIFs) and flexibility factors (K factors) in their analysis. With this release, FEATools is now accessible through a dedicated toolbar menu. Likewise, links to NozzlePRO, also from PRG, allows users to compare multiple file results, assess the sensitivity of model elements, and evaluate nozzle/branch connections with CAESAR II.

The Static Analysis Load Case Editor was redesigned to improve user experience and add more robust functionality when creating and revising load cases for analysis. The software also offers improved distance measurement and faster piping data input.

How can you know if you are using the latest version of CAESAR II? The latest software version number is always listed on the Detailed Enhancement List.
You probably already know that you can define global coordinates for specific node points by pressing Alt+G and entering the coordinates in feet.

But did you know that if you enter a character specified for inches (such as 7-), CAESAR II calculates the global coordinate value into feet automatically (in this case, 84.000).

Plus, you can add a search for material name. Just type a53 to get all grades of this material in both Piping Input and Material Editor.
