INTERGRAPH CAESAR II is a comprehensive program for pipe stress analysis. It is the program by which all others are measured. Intergraph CAESAR II includes a full range of the latest international piping codes. It provides static and dynamic analysis of pipe and piping systems and evaluates FRP (fiber reinforced plastic); buried piping; wind, wave, and earthquake loading; expansion joints, valves, flanges and vessel nozzles; pipe components; and nozzle flexibilities. The program automatically models structural steel and buried pipe and provides spectrum and time history analysis and automatic spring sizing.. Intergraph CAESAR II includes component databases and an extensive material database with allowable stress data. It also includes a bi-directional link to the Intergraph CADWorx Plant drafting package. Since its introduction in 1984, CAESAR II from Intergraph Corporation has become the world’s most widely used pipe stress analysis software and is considered the industries de facto standard. CAESAR II is a complete pipe stress analysis software program that allows quick and accurate analysis of piping systems subjected to weight, pressure, thermal, seismic and other static and dynamic loads. It can analyze piping systems of any size or complexity.
