interfaces directly the application software for piping stress analysis (CAESARII)
interfaces directly FEM application software used for steel structural design (SAP, STAAD, SACS, etc.)
retrieves piping support reactions from piping stress software and directly applies these, once harmonized with the structural loading condition sets, to the corresponding structural FEM model.
Fills in an interface report containing the mapping information on how each support reaction load has been converted and transferred on the steel structure
Maximum reliability due to a direct interface either with the stress analysis software (input) and he structural FEM software (output)
Maximum reliability due to a direct interface with the database of supports loads for the retrieving workflow of input data
New and original aspects of the creation
The original aspects involve the fully and bidirectional link of LINTMAN with either the piping stress analysis software and he structural FEM software.
