Before starting this video series let tell you some basic idea of Pass/Start-Prof.
What is PASS/START-PROF?
Piping And Equipment Analysis & Sizing Suite or PASS/START-PROF is a comprehensive pipe stress analysis program similar to other Stress Analysis software like Caesar II, AutoPipe, Caepipe, Rohr II, etc. PASS/START-PROF software checks the piping flexibility, stability, and fatigue strength at ease. It performs all related sizing calculations following international and national codes & standards.
It is the world’s first Pipe Stress Analysis Software and first developed in 1965 in Russia. It possesses a highly powerful analysis features and efficient solver with user-friendly 3D graphics. At the same time, their detailed help system from generations of piping design experts is really praiseworthy.
The aim of PASS/START-PROF software creation is that it is planned for regular designers without special knowledge in pipe stress analysis and/or detailed knowledge of standards.
Uses of START-PROF:
PASS/START-PROF can be used to analyze piping and pipeline systems from the following industries:
- process piping industry
- power piping industry
- gas and oil transportation industry
- district heating piping
- hot water supply etc,
The software can be used for stress analysis of underground, above ground, vacuum, high pressure and/ or high temperature, also cryogenic piping considering various types of restraints, spring hangers, pipe fittings, and expansion joints. PASS/STARTPROF offers an automatic selection of variable and constant spring hanger supports.
The material database of PASS/START-PROF is wide considering the various range of materials that are used in pipelines which include all types of steels, nonferrous materials, plastic pipes and fittings, orthotropic materials such as fiberglass, reinforced plastic, glass-reinforced plastics, and glass-reinforced epoxy.
