Pipe Stress Analysis software
Pipe Stress Analysis software
Since its introduction in 1984, CAESAR II from Intergraph Corporation has become the world’s most widely used pipe stress analysis software and is considered the industry’s de facto standard. CAESAR II is a complete pipe stress analysis software program that allow quick and accurate analysis of piping systems subjected to weight, pressure, thermal, seismic and other static and dynamic loads. It can analyze piping systems of any size or complexity. CAESAR II is unique, incorporating calculation methods and analysis options not found in any other program.

Input & Modeling Capabilities
CAESAR II input capabilities have revolutionized the way pipe stress engineers approach flexibility analysis. Input and modeling capabilities include
Let you walk around your model, taking you just one step short of holding the model in your hand. CAESAR II supports single-line, volume, wire frame and rendered graphics.
CAESAR II makes it easy to input and display all the data needed to accurately define a piping system analysis model.
Wide Selection Of Restraint Types
Provides the widest range of support types for boundary conditions.
Anchors with or without displacements
Single or double acting translational
Single or double acting rotational
Translational with bi-linear stiffness
Guides and limit stops
Tie rod assemblies
Gaps and firiction
Connecting nodes for nodal interdependence
Large rotation rod supports
Provides a comprehensive material database with temperature dependent allowable stresses. Includes valves and flange databases with built-in length and weight information. Provides the ability to add your own data.
Structural steel modeling
Helps you set realistic boundary conditions, not idealistic ones. CAESAR II includes structural steel database from many international standards.
Extensive FRP (Fiberglass) Pipe Capabilities
Includes two piping codes specifically for fiberglass reinforced plastic pipe plus vendors data for modeling and analysis.
Other Input & Modeling Capabilities Include
Either Y or Z as vertical
“Undo/Redo” input correction
Cold spring elements
Bend/intersection Stress Intensification Factor (SIF) calculator and library
Multiple job batch processing
Automatic buried pipe modeling
Static Analysis Capabilities
CAESAR II begins a static analysis by recommending load cases necessary to comply with piping code stress requirements. CAESAR II allows you to analyze piping and structural models together, and you can observe the effect of the non-linear pipe-structure interaction both graphically and numerically. Static analysis capabilities include:
Automatic, Comprehensive Error Checking
Extensive Spring Hanger Selection Options
ASCE Wind Load Generation
Nozzle Flexibilities and Stresses
Equipment Load Checks
Flange Leakage and Stresses
Fatigue Analysis and Cumulative Usage Report
Offshore Piping Analysis
Dynamic Analysis Capabilities
CAESAR II guides you through the specification or acquisition of data needed for dynamic analysis. Dynamic analysis begins with the specifications of the dynamic input data such as lumped masses, imposed vibration, and spectrum definitions. Dynamic analysis capabilities includes.
Mode Shape and Natural Frequency Calculations
Harmonic Forces and Displacements
Shock Spectrum Analysis and Independent Support Motion (Including Anchor Movements)
Force Spectrum Analysis
Model Time History Analysis
Animation of Dynamic Response
