1- PDMSPDMS (Plant Design Management System) as it is known in the 3D CAD industry, is a customizable, multi-user and multi-discipline, engineer controlled
design software package for engineering, design and construction projects in offshore and onshore. This software is one of the most quintessential software that assists engineers in designing and constructing gigantic projects. Such gigantic projects require hundreds of engineers to work on them, a facility that is available with this software. The PDMS application allows engineers and designers at multiple locations to simultaneously create, control and manage change to the project. A proper knowledge of this software also allows engineers to:
- Discuss piping engineering fundamentals along with pipe fittings and components
- Elucidate piping codes, standards, and calculations
- Create piping and equipment layout
- Develop equipment modeling, pipe modeling, structure modeling, cable tray modeling, and HVAC modeling
- Prepare piping deliverable documents and drawings
2- CAESARThe world’s most widely used pipe flexibility and stress analysis software, CAESAR II is a complete solution that enables quick and accurate analysis of piping systems subjected to a wide variety of loads, taking into account weight, pressure, thermal, seismic and other static and dynamic conditions, based on user-defined variables and accepted industry guidelines.
CAESAR II analyzes piping systems of any size or complexity, whether the need is to design a new system or trouble-shoot an existing one. And, CAESAR II features the only bi-directional link between analysis and CAD design, allowing engineers and designers to easily share information while keeping the drawing and related data in sync.
3- PV ElitePV Elite is a complete solution for vessel and heat exchanger design, analysis and evaluation. Users of PV Elite have designed equipment for the most extreme uses and have done so quickly, accurately and profitably. Some of the most important feature of this software is provide as follow:
PV Elite makes defining pressure boundary conditions for vessels and exchangers easy, even for load sets that require significant data input. PV Elite streamlines data entry by breaking the input down into sensible subsets. Help on any input item is only a keystroke away.
PV Elite's graphical representation of analysis models helps ensure confidence in the input and results. With PV Elite, analysis models can be viewed and manipulated with complete ease.
PV Elite performs calculations in accordance with ASME Section VIII, Divisions 1 & 2, PD 5500, and EN 13445. Rules from API 579 (Fitness for Service) are also included for evaluating the current state and remaining life of existing vessels.
Outputs and Reports
To simplify inspection requirements, PV Elite lists the most important equations such as required thickness and maximum allowable working pressure (MAWP) and also groups results by type (e.g. internal pressure, external pressure, bending stress, nozzles and flanges). Overall results are summarized where the element or detail controlling the overall vessel MAWP is identified.
Materials and Codes
PV Elite is a global package with international code rules plus extensive region-specific content. Vessel material definitions, piping and steel component data, local wind loads and local seismic loads of many regional markets are all included.
PV Elite interfaces with other popular software packages for finite element analysis, foundation design and drafting. PV Elite also shares a bi-directional link to CADWorx Equipment module.
4- HYSYSAspen HYSYS Dynamics is dynamic process simulation software that has been integrated into Aspen HYSYS, making it easy to convert your steady state process model into a dynamic process simulation model to study time-dependent oil & gas processes, including gas processing and petroleum refining.
