The parametric approach used in FEPipe permits even novice pressure vessel engineers to construct accurate models using only dimensional input. FEPipe automatically creates the model geometry, finite element mesh, applied loads, and boundary conditions based on standard dimensions.
Results are presented in terms of ASME code compliance reports instead of generalized stress tensors and stress intensities as general FEA tools tend to do. This enables novice user to use and comprehend the package.
FEPipe includes a load case processor that automatically accounts for load cases that contribute to failure in piping and pressure vessel components. Such as weight, thermal load, internal/external pressure, seismic loads and loads due to acceleration or fluid head.
