Calculation of 3D pipe systems with LV PIPE II (English output)
Requires at least MS Office 2010
Runs under Windows 7/ Windows 8 / Windows 10 32/64-bits
The LV PIPE II user interface is completely integrated into MS EXCEL. The EXCEL environment enables the user to implement his own data and links and to create the documentation according his preferences. Results of a calculation are totally separated from the input (EXCEL sheets).
LV PIPE II determines the following quantities among other things:
Support reactions, forces and moments
Pipe forces and moments
Stresses according to:
DVS (Plastic pipes)
Variable spring hanger data / Expansion joints catalogue interface
Wind loads, Seismic loads
Supports with clearance
Single acting restraints / singular supports
Different load cases and free definable load case combinations
Data are determined for the pure dead load case (installation), the pure thermal load case (start / shutdown) and for the combined load case (operation). For an easier assessment, the most important quantities can be presented graphically. The LV PIPE II program meets the requirements for calculating of nozzle loads in pressure vessel design perfectly. In combination with the modules WRC and FEM all proofs according to PED (Pressure Equipment Directive) can be performed.
