STAAD.Pro Help

M. Piping workflow

The STAAD.Pro Piping workflow is used to import piping support geometry and reactions from Bentley AutoPIPE.

The piping system in a plant model is supported by a number of structural components – such as pipe racks, cradles or shoes – constructed exclusively for that purpose or from the existing beams, columns and slabs of the structure. To facilitate the design of structures to sustain the loading imparted by the piping system, STAAD.Pro includes a seamless transfer of support reactions calculated from an AutoPIPE analysis to the structure modeled in STAAD.Pro.
