01b.Model Different Types of PIPING Components - AutoPIPE

Attention: Please see the following AutoPIPE help section:
Help > Contents> Contents Tab> Modeling Approaches> Modeling Approaches>

This help has been provided in order to give users ideas for modeling typical piping arrangements. The steps shown in each example should not be taken as the only method available to create models. In addition, the intent of the examples is to present ways to create adequate models of specific piping components for analytical purposes.

Cuts: Cold Spring          Flexible Joints 
Frames Hangers 
Nozzles  Pipes
Reducers  Rotating Equipment
Supports Tees 
Valves Vessels
