CAESAR II is the industry standard for pipe stress analysis, letting you build, assess and report on piping systems of any size or complexity in accordance with more than 35 international piping code standards and many environmental and equipment guidelines. CAESAR II incorporates a wide range of capabilities, from numerous piping codes, to expansion joint, valve & flange, and structural databases, to structural and buried pipe modeling, to equipment and vessel nozzle evaluation, to spectrum and time history analysis.
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. Analyze response to deadweight, thermal, and pressure loads. Measure the effects of support settlement, wave and seismic loads, and wind. Select proper springs for necessary support. Evaluate support lift off, friction, and gap closure.
The US code-based stress equations and load case labels used by CAESAR II for actual and allowable stresses are shown below. The load case recommendations made by CAESAR II are usually sufficient for code compliance. CAESAR II does not recommend occasional load cases. Pipe stress analysis is an analytical method to determine how a piping system behaves based on its material, pressure, temperature, fluid, and support. For instance, if it is a water system with no outside forces applied to the piping system, inspection or hand calculations are usually sufficient
