When you are working with piping models, you need an accurate pipeline design software to analyze proper occasional static loads.
You can choose UBC or ASCE-7 (1998, 2002, 2010 or 2016) codes for your wind loads. Simply provide some inputs and AutoPIPE will automatically generate your wind profile. If these codes don't apply to your project, you can choose the “Profile” option. Then just input your own user wind profile, and select how pressure will change with height.
With AutoPIPE, you can specify your snow loads as a distributed load over segments. Apply your snow loads as weight by length, area, or density.
You can select from ALA (ASCE 2002), ASCE 2010, ASCE 2016, Chinese GB50011 – 2001, and Mexican CFE 2008 codes for static earthquake loads. Simply provide some inputs and then AutoPIPE will generate the seismic accelerations. Or you can create a user profile in which you can input the x, y, and z components of your earthquake loads, with seismic accelerations as a factor of g.
