Since its introduction in 1984, CAESAR II® has become the world’s most widely used pipe flexibility and stress analysis software. It is considered the industry de facto standard. With the release of CAESAR II 2016, the product’s industry leadership of 30 years forges forward with a revitalized direction and significant new capabilities in response to market demands and direct feedback.
Hear Mitch Sklar from Hexagon discuss some highlights of this research and development effort, including:
- Updates and support are offered for the latest piping codes B31.1, B31.4, B31.5, B31.8, and B31.9 in addition to Fixed Equipment Engineering codes API-560, API-610, API-617, and API-661.
- Redesigned Static Analysis Load Case Editor improves user experience and adds more robust functionality when creating and revising analysis load cases.
- Wind and Seismic Codes for NBC 2010 and ASCE 7-10/IBC 2012 are supported.
- Expanded library content with six additional hanger manufacturers is now available.
- Overall usability has been improved through distance measuring, additional filter capabilities, output reports, and a consolidation of menu picks into right mouse-click model manipulations.
- Smooth integration with CADWorx® and Smart™ 3D models (VUE files) increases productivity.
- Improved analytics are enabled with the augmentation of Paulin Research Group FEATools™ and NozzlePRO™.
- Projects related to the nuclear industry will benefit from the product’s realigned industry focus.
Don’t miss this opportunity to take a first look at the new CAESAR II 2016 and how the benefits of its revitalized direction can improve your workflows.
