CAESAR II: Let’s Get Loaded – Check Out the New Load Case Editor
CAESAR II 2016 introduces the B31.3-2014 Load Case Editor and expansion allowable stress change. A redesign of the Static Analysis module (Load Case Editor) was required to support the 2014 edition of the B31.3 code. This code edition states to use the maximum of all SL values and consider the SL stress from all support conditions. The impact is that there will need to be a sustained load case available for every operating and sustained load case. This session will address the new Load Case Editor. In addition, get a first look at the new updates for wind and seismic codes, along with some usability enhancements.

CAESAR II: Don’t Get So Stressed Out – Add Some Flexibility to Your Designs
The recent adoption of STP-PT-073 2014, Stress Intensity Factor, and K-Factor Alignment for Metallic Pipes is a culmination of the former ASME ST LLC 07 02 research activity conducted by Paulin Research Group. This signals that ASME Standards Technology has taken the next steps in aligning stress intensification and flexibility factors for metallic pipes used in ASME’s Pressure Piping Codes (B31) and Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (B&PVC) Section III Class 2 and Class 3 Piping. CAESAR II 2016 introduces the next step in more applicable data by embedding PRG’s FEATools and NozzlePro. Attend this session to check out FEATools V2 augmenting CAESAR II, and see how to use the newly aligned SIFs and Ks in your next project.

PV Elite: Take a Load Off! How Load Cases Are Handled by PV Elite
In the course of their service, vessels are subjected not only to operating pressures, but also to external loads from wind and seismic events, as well as their own weight. This presentation will consider these loads and how they affect the vessel. Vessels must be able to withstand these environmental forces for the life of the vessel. PV Elite evaluates serviceability to ensure the vessel is up to the task.

GT STRUDL: A Model of Excellence – See the New GT STRUDL CAD Modeler 2015
GT STRUDL CAD Modeler 2015 (add-on to AutoCAD) was introduced earlier this year. CAD Modeler graphically creates a GT STRUDL input file and sends it to the main instance of GT STRUDL. Analysis is performed in GT STRUDL background mode, and then results are available for reading through the GT Menu option of GT STRUDL or back in the CAD Modeler. The presenter will demonstrate the step-by-step building of a three-dimensional structure. This will be your first chance to see GT STRUDL CAD Modeler 2016, which will be available in the next release.

4:00 PM to 4:45 PM
GT STRUDL: What’s on the Menu? First Look at the New GT Menu Interface
GT STRUDL developers have worked with the Intergraph User eXperience (UX) team to deliver greater productivity for users. GT STRUDL now features a new GT Menu Interface. Enhancements include a more modern appearance, dockable dialogs, improved wire frame, and solid display speed. The new menu simplifies procedures and improves workflows thanks to fewer dialogs needed to access functions and input data. It also supports multiple views of the structure on the screen. Be sure to attend this session to take your first look at the new GT Menu available in the next release.
