Design of various large bore refinery-type components

Pipemill: for the design, analysis and layout of piping components

This part of the Pipemill program is intended for the design of large bore refinery type fittings where standard components may not be available:

  • line blinds
  • end caps
  • mitre elbows, with any number of cuts

Calculations are in accordance with ASME VIII B31.3 (line blinds, mitre elbows) and ASME VIII Div. 1 (2000) (end caps).

Input data

Pressure, temperature, allowable stress, corrosion allowance, mill tolerances, bend radius, etc.

Special features

Stress intensification factors are calculated for mitre elbows.

Analysis support

  • Example analyses
  • Integral database of commonly available pipe sizes, with automatic input of selected pipe data
  • Scientific calculator
