PSRE Co. is pleased to announce launch of a new version of PASS/START-PROF, modern professional pipe stress analysis software 😎
4.84 version rises PASS/START-PROF to a new level and makes the software applicable for every piping engineer and designer worldwide. The new release contains extensive enhancements for Process and Piping Systems; Oil & Gas Gathering, Upstream and Midstream Pipelines, and for District Heating Industry.
We recommend all users with active technical support to download the new version of PASS/START-PROF 4.84.
The most important features of PASS/START-PROF 4.84 are:
Extended integration capabilities: the new version provides integration of PASS/START-PROF with the most popular CAD solutions, such as AVEVA E3D, AVEVA Marine and Autodesk Revit. This feature will help users to significantly reduce time required for recurring data input when performing analysis in PASS/START-PROF, and to avoid errors caused by repeated manual data input while creating of a calculation model.
The most frequently used international codes for pipe stress analysis have been added, such as: ISO 14692-2017 for Glass-reinforced Plastics Piping (GRP), ASME B31.12-2014 for Hydrogen Piping and Pipelines (USA), BS PD 8010-1:2015 for Pipeline systems – Part 1: Steel pipelines on land (UK), BS PD 8010-2:2015 for Pipeline systems – Part 2: Subsea pipelines (UK), CSA Z662-19 + Ch.11 for Oil and gas pipeline systems (Canada), GOST R 55989-2014 for Gas and Oil Transmission Pipelines for Pressure Greater 10 MPa (Russia), GOST R 55990-2014 for Field pipelines (Russia), SP 284.1325800.2016 for Field pipelines (Russia), SP 33.13330.2012 for Steel Pipelines (Russia), EN 13941-2019 for District heating pipes, EN 13941 7.3.1, 7.3.2, EN 253: added support for Polyurethane foam insulation stress analysis using EN codes.Pipe wall thickness calculator and bend wall thickness calculator have been added for all new codes.Updated ASME codes: ASME B31.9-2017 for Building Services Piping (USA), ASME B31.4-2019 for Pipeline Transportation Systems for Liquids and Slurries (USA), ASME B31.3-2018.
New analysis capabilities have been added, such as:
seismic wave propagation analysis for buried pipelines and strain check per ASCE 2001 (ALA);
