Analysis Overview: CAESAR II, GT STRUDL, PV ELITE, VVD, TANK, PV FabricatorAs an Intergraph Global Network Partner for CADWorx and Analysis Solutions, ECE Design is proud to offer the Intergraph Analysis Solutions:Intergraph is one of the world’s leading engineering software companies. In the early 1980’s, pipe stress analysis was revolutionized with Intergraph CAESAR II. The program’s flexibility, sophistication and simplicity of operation quickly swept the worldwide market. Following shortly after the success of CAESAR II, PV ELITE for Pressure Vessels and Intergraph TANK for oil storage tanks were introduced. Intergraph sets world standards for engineering and design software solutions.
The World Standard for Pipe Flexibility and Stress Analysis
Since its introduction in 1984, Intergraph CAESAR II has become the world’s most widely used pipe flexibility and stress analysis software and is the program against which all others are compared. It is a complete solution that allows quick and accurate analysis of piping systems subjected to a wide variety of loads, taking into account weight, pressure, thermal, seismic and other static and dynamic conditions, based on user-defined variables and accepted industry guidelines.
CAESAR II can analyze piping systems of virtually any size or complexity, whether you are designing a new system or trouble-shooting an existing one. And, CAESAR II features the only bi-directional link between analysis and CAD design, allowing engineers and designers to share information with ease while keeping the drawing and related information in synch.
With CAESAR II, you can do more in less time and do it more accurately.
GT STRUDL is one of the most widely used fully-integrated and adaptable structural analysis solutions in the world. The software has a proven track record in a variety of applications such as: nuclear and conventional power generation, on- and off-shore facilities, marine, civil and infrastructure, and others.
GT STRUDL is capable of supplying engineers with accurate and complete technical data for efficient and engineering and design decision making. GT STRUDL is a market leader in its field for quality, reliability, and technical support.
GT STRUDL is a fully integrated and database driven software system for general finite element analysis and comprehensive structural engineering design. GT STRUDL has nine functional areas that operate seamlessly with one another, and combined with amazingly fast computational speed, provides virtually unlimited power and flexibility for projects of any size or complexity.
The linear and nonlinear static and dynamic analysis capabilities of GT STRUDL are respected globally and few programs possess its depth and breadth of functionality. GT STRUDL includes all the tools necessary to analyze a broad range of structural projects, from the simplest, to the most complex, and can do so accurately and reliably in a fraction of the time of many other solutions.
Vessel and Exchanger Analysis Made Simple
Intergraph PV Elite provides engineers, designers, estimators, fabricators and inspectors around the world with solutions that match their pressure vessel and heat exchanger design needs. Because the program is easy to learn and use, it is perfect for both regular and occasional users requiring fast start up and confidence in their safety code calculations.
PV Elite is a complete solution for the quick and intuitive design of new pressure vessels and it also evaluates and re-rates existing vessels, including Fitness for Service analysis. The program considers the whole vessel, addressing all of the wall thickness rules and stress analysis requirements for vertical towers, horizontal vessels and heat exchangers. Also, individual vessel components may be evaluated.
Intergraph PV Fabricator ™ has advanced tools for accurate and speedy production of fabrication deliverables. And, when bi-directionally linked to PV Elite, delivers enormous savings over traditional drafting methods.
Whatever the situation, PV Elite with PV Fabricator provide results that are clear, accurate and concise.
Visual Vessel Design (VVD)
Vessel and Exchanger Analysis Made Simple
Visual Vessel Design (VVD) is a graphical-based Windows program for the calculation and design of pressure vessels, shell and tube heat exchangers, and boilers to different international and local design codes. It has been on the market for more than 30 years. The software is in use by vessel fabricators, petroleum refiners, oil companies, engineering companies, various process companies, and a number of independent consultants. The VVD reference list includes more than 80 different notified bodies. A complete reference list is available upon request.
Accurate, Reliable Storage Tank Design and Analysis
Intergraph TANK is a comprehensive, easy-to-use program for the design, analysis and evaluation of welded steel oil storage tanks according to American Petroleum Institute (API) Standards 650 and 653. It provides owners, operators, and engineering firms with quick and accurate designs for new tank construction and evaluation of existing tanks.
TANK provides for the design and analysis of wall and bottom plate thickness, supported cone roofs, service and maintenance considerations and other factors affecting tank design and safety such as internal pressure, shell settlement, seismic and wind. TANK saves time by letting you select material information automatically from its extensive built-in material databases. Other built-in databases include structural steel, seismic curves and nozzle curves from current and past API specifications.
Developed by engineers who deal daily with API standards and methods, TANK includes all the tools to quickly and accurately analyze, design and evaluate oil storage tanks.
Intergraph PV Fabricator has advanced tools for the accurate and speedy production of pressure vessel fabrication deliverables. When linked to Intergraph PV Elite®, PV Fabricator greatly improves the workflow between engineer and designer to increase productivity and reduce the re-work and errors that cause costly overruns and penalties. By producing drawings quickly and more accurately firms can increase throughput and customer satisfaction, thereby winning repeat business.
