Pipe Flexibility Analysis / Pipe Stress Analysis Services is a critical component in any piping design. It is mandatory that the critical piping which are operating under high pressure or high temperature services need to be analyzed for flexibility , expansion and load sustaining capabilities. Apart from process and power piping, District cooling systems which employ pre-insulated pipes and piping inside the energy transfer stations need to be analyzed for flexibility and expansion as per API, ASME B31.3, B31.1, B31.8, B31.4, CSA Z662. Meena Development LTD. offers comprehensive service which covers all aspects of Pipe Stress analysis in both industries.
Due to the extensive calculations required, the stress analysis will be carried out with the assistance of computer simulation and modeling software such as CARSAE II.
The stress analysis provides useful design information including the location of any high stress concentrations and bends within the network it also highlights areas requiring attention by way of redesign and or adding additional anchors or hangers to eliminate high stresses in the piping system.

The purpose of the stress analysis in piping systems is to identify the behavior of the pipes, piping components under the potential static loading experienced from the start up to operation. In particular, the stress analysis is undertaken to confirm that stresses produced in the piping system as a result of the temperature difference, pressure and dead weight will comply with the governing codes for such static loads. Moreover, the calculated displacements and restraint (anchors and hangers) loads under these static conditions should comply as well with these governing codes.
