Ethical behaviour in problem solving in piping pressure integrity pays little in Emerging India! A column on retirement finance in Washington Post today urged me to share the story of a typical honest piping stress prblem solver like me. In 2002, I

Is your pipe orthogonal with WCS in AutoCAD? Or you are using UCS - difrent angle. If pipe is not orthogonal, isogen will create some strange angles at supports or valve spindles.

Your Model_1 includes the height of the spring can while Model_2 does not. These systems respond in a similar fashion as expected (and as suggested by the note in the Application Guide). It looks to me that the loads transferred to the pipe at Node

Can someone please tell me how to change the way that isogen generates the angle of supports? Currently it generates "SUPPORT W43 N47". The fabricator would prefer it show "N43W" but I don't see anywhere in I Configure to change this. I am current

This slope, alpha, is used by some piping codes to develop a stress intensification factor for that piping component. (B31.3 does not set an SIF for concentric reducers.) As far as I know, no piping code addressed in CAESAR II sets an SIF for eccen

Hi, How does CAESARII calculate alpha of eccentric reducer. Because, unlike concentric reducer,for eccentric reducer The slope on one side is (D1-D2)/Slope Length and the slope on the other side is 0 Thanks, Vikas S

Thanks for Your reply, Mr. Ay. Model_1 @ node 430 has spring can modeled with all rigid elements described in Applications Guide; instead Model_2 @ node 430 has the +Y restraint with friction placed directly on Cnode. Horizontal loads are different

What version of c2 are you running? (Try this: if you can't change the "FROM" node number, try a PgDn to move to the next element, then PgUp to go back to the previous element.)

This may be a separate issue, but I frequently have issues changing node numbers of existing piping elements in the model. Clicking in the "From" node places a cursor in the "To" node field, but allows me to edit neither. For whatever reason, it's

That may be a function of the Cadworx export? I haven't done of lot of modifying Cadworx imports. I assume its not something silly like Numlock being turned off haha.

I've uploaded an example. I simply want to move this drain so that its branches off node 1255 instead of 1210. Caesar does not let me edit the "from" node. So I basically have to delete the old drain and create and entirely new one as the work aro

An example: When we pull completed models in .c2 format in from CAadworks and I want to move a branch to a different location, I should only have to change the "from" node on the branch to move that branch to its new location. Caeser literally won'

Not sure what you mean. I have the latest build of 2018 and it typically just asks for global coordinates when I want to switch the From node to something unrelated to previous nodes

In one of the later Caesar updates it seems as though I've had issues with changing the "From" node number in elements. It denies me the ability to change this number which would allow me to move elements and adjust models as needed. Does anyone kn
