This software and this document have been developed and checked for correctness and accuracy by SST Systems, Inc. Users must carry out all necessary tests to assure the proper functioning of the software and the applicability of its results. The sequence of this interface operation is shown diagrammatically in Figure Refer Appendix A for more details on modifying the Material and Hanger mapping database. Installing the Program Before installing the SST License Manager and the Client product on any of your computer, please make sure the computer meets the following requirement listed below.
Windows or later 2. Any machine available in the network can be used as a server machine and it is not caeplpe to be a real server.
You will see a typical window; amnual to that shown in ,anual figure left below. The name shown on top left corner of the window changes depending upon the InfoPlant product and its module you buy. You will be shown window similar to that shown in the figure right below. Follow the instructions as they appear on the screen. If the setup program fails to register the service automatically for any reason, manuall register the service manually as stated below.
The details are shown graphically below. After successful registration of the service you will maual a message shown manua figure right below. The client program can be installed in as many systems as you want. To install the product manua the client computers, insert the compact disc supplied by InfoPlant to the CDROM drive and wait for few seconds to enable the Auto play feature.
For sharing the license information, client computer need to communicate with the server computer where the SST License Manger is installed. Please note, the automated procedure for locating the manuzl computer by the client computer for sharing license information is purposefully not given for the following reasons. SST License Manager is used as a security system for all InfoPlant products and hence user can have different servers in the same network environment for different InfoPlant products.
Can have one server for various InfoPlant products installed in different client machines. Can have two different servers for one InfoPlant product by splitting the number of users not applicable for single user and 5.
Locating the server automatically under a huge network environment is a time consuming process. If the client 3 program is installed other than the machine where SST License Carpipe is installed, then follow the procedure listed below for setting the environmental variable under different operating systems.
Ethernet card installed with proper driver files.
Network cable plugged and connected to the network. Please note, if you generate a Product Key without connecting to a network network cable unpluggedthen the license issued for that Product Key could not be used when the network cable is plugged-in.
On the other hand, the license issued for the Product Key generated with network cable plugged-in can be used in unplug mode too.
Hence, it is always recommended to caepioe the network cable plugged-in before generating the Product Key on both Desktops as well as Laptops configured to use both in standalone and network mode. The client program communicates with the server computer and sends request to check for the availability of the license to use the product.
If not available, program automatically generates a new Product Key and send the same back to the client machine. Client machine then pops up the same in a dialog box as shown in figure below.
Using client module and 2. Using the Manage License Tool. This enables the text box below the check box. Additional weight of Valves 2. Flange placed at disconnected end 3. Force Spectrum Load 6. Jacket end cap 9. Negative gap used in Limit Stops Pumps, Compressors and Turbines Spectrum, Force Spectrum and Time Frequency Pressure P10 and Thermal load T10 Generic Support details Upon successful transfer, user gets the message box as shown below.
Some of the items associated with the bend are shown in figure below. As you can see from the figure, TIP is not physically located on the bend. Its only purpose is to define the bend. The data items such as flanges, hangers, forces, etc. Failure of locating such node point by the interface will be reported in the. All other parameters are the same as that of Bend. By default, for valve elements, the Thickness factor and the Insulation Weight factor are always assumed as 10 and 1.
This is contrary to the statement given in CAESAR II Technical Reference Manual, which states that the reducer element is assumed as 10 pipe cylinders, each of successively larger or smaller diameter and thickness over the length for calculating the weight. The observation made during the verification and validation of the interface for reducer element is listed in Appendix E for reference on the above subject.
It could be modeled, as two annular packing glands separated axially along the joint by a dead air space, or by a small bellows sleeve. Hence, it is difficult to generate a mathematical model through the interface.
Hinge Joint Transfers as Expansion Joint using zero length elements with axial, transverse and torsional stiffness as rigid.
In addition, the restraint line of action should be defined normal to the hinge axis. Ball Joint Transfers as Expansion Joint using a zero length element with manaul and transverse stiffnesses as rigid and essentially zero bending and torsional stiffnesses.
The interface duplicates and assigns the same node numbering for both core piping and the Jacketed Piping. User has to caeepipe change the node numbers for Jacketed Piping and also has to verify the model for its correctness. This is explicitly reported in the. Since CAESAR II does not have the provision to write all the restraint types in one element, interface writes the first four restraints in one element and the balance two restraints are filled in the available free element by clearly indicating the Anchor Node number.
Transfers flexible anchors with displacements as listed below a. Transfers flexible anchors as six flexible restraints. Transfers four restraints in one element and the last two restraints on the next available free element.
Creates a unique connection node with the available free number 1 to and writes the displacement details in the vectors 1 through 9 corresponding to CAEPIPE temperature T1 through T9. Accordingly interface will report the message into the.

Transfers flexible anchors as six flexible restraints in Global coordinate system and report the same in to the log file.
Creates a unique connection node with the available free number 1 to and writes the displacement details in Global coordinates in the vectors 1 through 9 corresponding to CAEPIPE temperature T1 through T9 and notify the user by writing the message in to the log file.
The length thus assumed is then adjusted by reducing the length of the preceding element by 0. The length thus assumed is then adjusted by reducing the length of preceding element by 0. Interface writes the Force information to CII as follows. Transfer as double-acting restraints with or without specified gap. Guide placed in the horizontal or skewed pipe will be transferred as two restraints orthogonal to pipe axis.
Accordingly, interface writes them in log file to notify the users. For clarity, assume the direction of Limit Stop as Global Y i. Code On this tab you can choose the piping code and also set options for that piping code.
The left figure above shows the analyses option related to code. Temperature On this tab caepipf can set the options related to thermal loads a.
Failing to do so will affect the results and will lead to mismatch in the results between the software. Now, open the binary file. Navigate to the required element.
In this case node number You will see a dialog box as shown in figure below. Study Models and 2. Live Project Models 7. Study Models To study manuap understand the way Cafpipe II performs analysis for different types of elements under different loading conditions, 27 problems were modeled manually in-house with an increasing complexity.
The analyses were performed in both the software and the results thus obtained were compared against each other. The knowledge gathered from the above study was then used as the algorithm for developing the Interface.
The results are listed below for your reference. The models chosen for testing and comparing the results are included with the distribution CD for reference.
