CAESAR II Webinar: CAESAR II Stress Isometrics Using Isogen & I-Configure


with Jim Wilcox, P.Eng., President of CodeCAD Inc.

Date: Tuesday, February 13
Time: 
10:00 AM Houston / 5:00 PM Amsterdam click here for your local time
Duration
: 1 hour
Cost
: free eSeminar


This session will provide quick tips for customizing stress isometrics generated by CAESAR II.

 

While it is easy to create a default-format stress ISO with input/output/custom annotations in CAESAR II, it can be tricky to understand how to customize your own drawing style.

  • How do you incorporate your own border drawing and company logo?
  • How can you change text and line styles?
  • How do you populate the border of the drawing with the information you want to display?

Join this instructional session from a CAESAR II expert to take days out of the learning process and leap-frog you into creating customized ISOs.

Excel in brownfield project execution – watch our new video

Excel in brownfield project execution – watch our new video!

Today, many companies face unprecedented challenges from low commodity prices and fierce competition. We can see how more and more projects are either being canceled or postponed while more companies are chasing fewer projects. You can read more about brownfield project challenges below, or watch our new video!

Making the most of existing assets

As most of us will know, one of the key ideas of economic theory is that businesses will focus on improving efficiency to maintain profits and gain a competitive advantage during a downturn. Although the global oil price is showing some signs of recovery, we are still a long way from seeing new build projects being budgeted, as most owner-operators are still focusing on making the most of their existing assets.

Besides oil and gas companies, pharmaceutical, chemical producers, and other plant operators are all under pressure from multiple directions: in addition to the fluctuating oil price, increasing regulations, shrinking margins, and the ever-increasing need for heightened efficiency are also influencing the daily operations.

As one of the ways to answer to competition and improve margins, we can see that owner-operators are currently looking for ways to extend the lifecycle of their existing facilities and get the most value from these facilities while they are operational. There are many benefits when compared to building new facilities: no new capital investment is needed, the entire existing infrastructure is already in place, and plant personnel is already trained.

For these brownfield projects, a toolset is needed that matches the dynamics and finances of these faster paced, lower budget projects. And what does this toolset look like? Watch our new CADWorx video Excel in Brownfield Project Execution to find out!


Real-life project examples

Curious to learn how others have excelled in brownfield project execution with the help of CADWorx Solutions? You can read how Mercury Engineering designed a new process plant with product pipelines that connected into an existing facility or how Numikon improved brownfield operational safety with the help of CADWorx and laser scanning.

Editing Multiple Load Cases-

Use the Group Edit view of the Static Analysis – Load Case Editor to update values on multiple load cases at one time. This view saves you valuable time as you can make global changes to load cases, rather than having to edit each load case individually.

To perform a group edit of multiple load cases

1. Open a CAESAR II job.
2. Run error checking or the analysis, and then select Static Analysis.
3. Click Group Edit in the upper-right corner of the Static Analysis – Load Case Editor.

Static Analysis – Load Case Editor List View (the Default)

The List view shows all load cases in list format, making it easy to see a full view of load cases as you work.

Static Analysis – Load Case Editor Group Edit View 

The Group Edit view could be considered a bulk editor for all your load cases. This enables you to make mass changes to any selected load cases with just a few simple clicks.

To use the Group Edit view for changing load cases:

1.    Select multiple load cases and click Group Edit.

The software preserves the load case selections you made in the List view and keeps them highlighted in the Group Edit view.

2.    Change any field values in this view and the software updates all the load cases you previously selected.

3.    By toggling back to the List view, you can see the changes that were applied to each of the selected load cases.

Using the new Group Edit view can save a lot of time, and it only takes a few clicks.

CAESAR II 2017 – the industry de facto standard for pipe stress analysis – is now available commercially.

CAESAR II evaluates the structural responses and stresses of piping systems to international codes and standards. This 2017 version includes features that address many long-standing customer requests, as well as some significant industry code updates.

Technical additions include the ability to evaluate creep conditions for all piping codes using EN-13480 guidelines, and a new dialog to specify custom nozzle stiffnesses from the piping input. The version features several interface and usability improvements, including model symbols to show displacements, rotations, forces and moments, and improved display of node numbers and axial stops in piping models.
