Transferring pipe support reactions from your pipe stress analysis tool to your structural analysis tool manually can be time consuming and error prone. With AutoPIPE and SACS you can achieve a 40% time savings in the load transfer step with ISM interoperability. With ISM, offshore structural engineers can automatically import the pipe support reactions and apply them to the structure for their analysis! Best of all, the structural model may be exported to AutoPIPE to add the flexibility of the structure to the pipe stress analysis. Finally, every time the piping or structural models need to be updated the models may be synched via ISM and quickly re-analyzed. Take advantage of one of the most popular workflows for pipeline/structure interoperability.

​In this webinar, we will showcase: 

  • SACS Offshore Structural Analysis Overview
  • AutoPIPE Pipe Stress Analysis Overview
  • SACS/AutoPIPE Interoperability Demonstration
  • STAAD/AutoPIPE Interoperability Overview
  • ISM and PipeLink workflows
