Esteemed experts,
I need a piece of information, please.
Why does FEATools v.15 put the same value for bend's SSI and SIF?
Caesar is v.12 SP2 HF2.
ASME B31.3 piping code.
Thanks for Your help.
Best regards

Alessio

Esteemed experts,
My question was not so clear, indeed.
When you select “ForceFEA for all bends” in “Bend SIF/Flexibility Options” of FEATools, FEATools itself "calls" FEBend and calculates bend's SIF and SSI that you can see by MiMOut output processor included in FEBend.

These SSI calculated by f.e.a. software should be "more applicable data", nevertheless FEATools doesn't put them in Caesar.

FEATools 4.2 (latest version released by Hexagon) features the same fashion with previous Caesar II 2019 SP4 (11.00.04.0200 Build 201110).

Does FEATools and/or Caesar require any setting to solve this issue?Any suggestion is appreciate.
Thanks.
Best regards

Alessio
