Cost-effective and accurate design for safe operation

AutoPIPE Vessel is a vessel analysis and design software designed to save engineers and designers time and increase the quality of the design and analysis of pressure vessels by having fully automated workflows, complete global codes, and applied loadings.

Optimize vessel design and manufacturing

With AutoPIPE Vessel, you can evaluate alternatives and provide quality solutions for loading and manufacturing scenarios in just minutes. It provides support for details and drawings as well as installation and operating conditions. Plus, with fatigue analysis, installation and support-in-place design and analysis, pressure testing, automatic drawing production, and cost estimation, you can ensure you are providing a complete design.

Maximize productivity

AutoPIPE Vessel provides you accurate, cost-effective designs for the safe operation of vessels under various loading conditions such as wind, seismic, wave, motion, vortex shedding, and blast loading and can be used on brownfield or greenfield projects. By enabling the use of material standards and a wide range of design codes including those from many prior years, it improves flexibility for revamping existing vessels. AutoPIPE Vessel helps reduce design time, eliminate rework, and is easy to use, so you can get started quickly.

Improve collaboration

Your project team members can collaborate efficiently, reduce the number of iterations and errors, and provide high-quality designs by taking advantage of a unified workflow from data handover to operations and maintenance. Share data with plant design applications such as AutoPLANT and PDS. You can even reference your piping model and import nozzle loads from AutoPIPE. Export directly to IFC and ISM file types.
